Chart from a json field


A chart plugin made with recharts. Works only with JSON Fields


This is the source data for the example image. The Data must have an attribute "name" to identify the X axis elements and the other keys are data items related to named points.

    { "name": "A", "uv": 4000, "pv": 2400, "amt": 2400, "lp": 7500 },
    { "name": "B", "uv": 3000, "pv": 1398, "amt": 2210, "lp": 3500 },
    { "name": "C", "uv": 2000, "pv": 9800, "amt": 2290, "lp": 1500 },
    { "name": "D", "uv": 2780, "pv": 3908, "amt": 2000, "lp": 750 },
    { "name": "E", "uv": 1890, "pv": 4800, "amt": 2181, "lp": 1500 },
    { "name": "F", "uv": 2390, "pv": 3800, "amt": 2500, "lp": 3500 },
    { "name": "G", "uv": 3490, "pv": 4300, "amt": 2100, "lp": 7500 }

This plugin is an addon so you could create more chart instance on the same field, to change source data, you can specify another json field. The alternative source field must belong to the same record.


in this example we are using a previous json field named "source" as datasource for he chart.


You can personalize lines bars and pies colors passing a string containing a comma separated color list per intance. for example: '#0088FE,#00C49F,#FFBB28,#FF8042'
