Britecharts is a client-side reusable Charting Library based on D3.js v4 that allows easy and intuitive use of charts and components that can be composed together creating amazing visualizations.
Britecharts components have been written in ES2016 with a Test Driven methodology so they are fully tested, and we are commited to keeping them that way.
The typical use of Britecharts involves creating a chart using its simple API, then rendering it on a container which has previously had data applied to it. The code will look like this:
barChart .width(500) .height(300); barContainer.datum(dataset).call(barChart);
All the components expose some common API methods like width, height and margin. Additionally, each chart or component can expose specific methods. Those can be found in the documentation:
Britecharts components are distributed in UMD modules, each one exposing a D3.js component written with the Reusable API pattern. To use any of the Britecharts modules, you will need to require the chart in your JS file using AMD/CommonJS modules or adding a script tag with the
src pointing to the file. You would also need to load the d3-selection submodule to select the chart container.
npm install britecharts d3-selection
They also provide some minimal CSS styling, that can be loaded independently or as a bundle.
This project is in active development! If you want to help, you can check the contributing guide. Also review the issues page for more info on what's coming, to give your feedback, and to vote for your favorite proposals. You can also find us in the D3.js slack group, in the #britecharts channel.
Sun Dai designs Britecharts, and two books inspired the code, Developing a D3.js Edge and Mastering D3.js. It also leveraged a significant number of examples and articles from the D3.js community overall.
