Recommended Graph module?

Hi All,

I’m looking for a recommendation for a powerful graphing module. I’ve
tried Gruff, and it doesn’t do what my clients are looking for. In
particular, their requirements include:

  • arbitrary colour selection
  • arbitrary graph sizing
  • legend displayed or hidden
  • stacked bar type
  • horizontal bar type
  • 3D exploded pie type

Preferably, it would be something that produces an image, so I can slot
it into my existing controller that produces graphs using the Gruff
module. My clients will consider both free and commercial modules - we
just need something good, and in a hurry.

Yours,
Duncan B.

Does this help?

One of the things that first attracted me to Ruby on Rails was the
helpful, friendly community … long may that continue :slight_smile:

Re. Scruffy: it looks like it’ll do what I want, except that as I
understand it, the current release doesn’t have pie charts.

Re. ZiYa. Well. I’m not a great fan of Flash myself, but it looks like
it does absolutely everything I need, & in a beautiful fashion. I’ll be
recommending it to my clients tonight, & integrating it with the site
tomorrow. Thanks for the heads-up :slight_smile:

On a rambling note … this was my first RoR contract, a six-week rush
job to implement a site from scratch after their last developer bailed
taking the code with him. Not an easy task, but it’s nearly done now
:slight_smile:

Not yet, but it must be close:

Oooo - nice. I will add that to my library. Thanks Tom.

It is … but 0.3.0 isn’t up on RubyForge, yet. Given that we’re hoping
to have whatever I choose integrated with the product by tomorrow night
(six-week deadline and all) it’s vital that it’s all ready to go now :slight_smile:
