Introduction

Graphs and Charts

If you can write the SQL to extract the data you want to plot, Plotalot will use the Google Visualization API to dynamically draw various different charts or tables, with numerous formatting options.


  • Line graphs, scatter graphs, and area graphs with multiple plots
  • Horizontal or vertical stacked or grouped bar charts ...
  • 2D or 3D pie charts and donut charts ...
  • Gauges, timelines, bubble charts, gantt charts, calendar charts, combo charts, candlestick charts, org charts, tree map charts, and geo charts
  • Supports both Classic and Material Design charts
  • Legend at top, bottom, left, right, or none
  • Optional grid
  • Titles and axis labels can be simple text or SQL queries
  • Axis limits can be automatic, fixed, or SQL generated
  • Charts can be responsive, and can refresh automatically without re-drawing the whole page
  • Three types of tables, including fully responsive CSS tables
  • Single items merge data from your database seamlessly into articles
  • Query the local site database or any other supported database
  • No libraries to install, just a component and an optional plugin
  • Charts can be cached on your web-server to reduce database load
  • Plotalot can be built in to your own code to add charting to your own extensions

Usage is fully documented in a free PDF user guide.

Functionality
Offers an easy integration layer for Google charts visualization with a straight forward and intuitive configuration dashboard.
Ease of use
The component use is very intuitive. The API took a little exploration to fully understand although once understood, implementation is easy
Support
I had one query around the API which was speedily answered by support despite my not having purchased the API support license.
Documentation
Comprehensive, accurate and up to date. If you get stuck, with a little reading you should find the answer in the documentation.
I used this to: Plotting, visualizing and presenting IOT instrumentation data. It really is a well written and well constructed component. It deserves the full star rating it has, in my opinion.

Such a great tool for plotting
