New github font, my life will never be the same
-apple-system seems like a terrible font choice, at the size they used it looked like it had gigantic letter spacing
Question to start the day off. I'm writing a little CLI utility and want to output graphs as images - SVGs, PNGs, whatever really. Any recommendations as to best libraries etc to use? Most of my graphing has been with HighCharts on the web, but I specifically don't want this web enabled at present.
Life is too short for those startup times
Well, the CLI would actually work on a scheduled basis rather than on demand.
@paulspencerwilliams: dali writes to files, but it provides the most help for diagrams, not so much graphs. So no facilities for axes, scaling of data etc. It's not a d3 replacement
Cheers @thomas, I'd started looing at https://github.com/liebke/analemma
@paulspencerwilliams: I’ve done a fair bit of shelling out to gnuplot - it’s such a simple format you don’t really need a library
Hmm - I was going to point to how aphyr does this in jepsen, but it seems he’s extracted it to a library: https://github.com/aphyr/gnuplot
"A really simple Clojure interface to Gnuplot. Useful when you just wanna plot some points. A lot of points. More points than Incanter or Analemma can reasonably handle."
You obviously get the gnuplot binary as a dependency, so it’s not useful for lots of use cases - it’s quite nice for server-side graphing when you control the server (and it’s a unix server 🙂 )
Cheers @korny I was hoping for a pure jvm style approach tbh and won't need vast amounts of points but I'll have a play.
Cool - gnuplot is not so applicable then. Myself, if I want a quick pretty graph I usually end up spitting out some JSON and then using a web browser and D3
@paulspencerwilliams: You could possibly switch to planck once stathis has added cljs support. That would make the cli a lighter load.
@dominicm: good call on plank. There will eventually be another on demand cli that pushed data into a db, and won't need graphing etc. Plank would be ideal for that.
Man, UK summers. Is there anything more depressing?
@martintrojer: Don’t ask questions like that…
well, there is the next decade in the UK. Almost as pitch black.
I still quite like the fact that you never have to try to sleep when it’s 38 degrees at 3am… 🙂
it's miserable at euston, even by euston standards
We had some rain earlier today… but dry at the moment. no idea what the temperature is out side though.
It’s extremely rare. Snows on the hills every few years, I’ve seen snow fall in the suburbs, but never seen it actually on the ground. You get a fair bit of hail sometimes, though
