JS charts instead of static charts


  • The charts component of M2M2 (when viewing a data point or watch list) works very smoothly and I'm sure a lot of effort has been put into making it work this way.
    I use it all the time but compared to tools like DGLux, librato, etc. it feels... very dated!

    However, perhaps the developers can consider switching to something like Rickshaw JS graphs:

    It's built on the popular and powerful D3JS library: http://d3js.org/
    But it is very lightweight and simple to implement.

    It can also update the graph values via AJAX or JSON/P which would be really nice in Mango, plus it can do things like tooltips.
    Here are some examples:

  • This is actually a feature we have planned in the near future and I agree will be an excellent upgrade.

    Cool! How many releases before you think it is likely to get in?

    I saw that terrypacker has implemented something similar in his DFT dialog page in [url=https://github.com/terrypacker/mango-modules]one of his modules, 'control toolbox'.
    There is [url=http://forum.infiniteautomation.com/forum/posts/list/1648.page#6768]a screenshot in this post.
    Maybe most of the hard work is already done.
