Daru::View

Daru (Data Analysis in RUby) is a library for analysis, manipulation and visualization of data. Daru-view is for easy and interactive plotting in web application & IRuby notebook. It can work in frameworks like Rails, Sinatra, Nanoc and hopefully in others too.

It is a plugin gem to Data Analysis in RUby(Daru) for visualisation of data

Examples :

Installation

Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:

gem 'daru-view', git: 'https://github.com/Shekharrajak/daru-view.git'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install daru-view

Usage

Use in IRuby notebook

source "http://rubygems.org"

# iruby dependencies
gem 'rbczmq'
gem 'ffi-rzmq'
gem 'iruby'

# fetch from the github master branch
gem "daru", git: 'https://github.com/SciRuby/daru.git'
gem "nyaplot", git: 'https://github.com/SciRuby/nyaplot.git'
gem 'daru-view', :git => 'https://github.com/shekharrajak/daru-view.git'

Use in web application

Note : Right now, in daru-view gemspec file daru and nyaplot is not added as development_dependency. Since daru-view required the latest github version of the Daru and Nyaplot gem and we can’t fetch gem from the github in the gemspec.

Rails application

The line <%=raw Daru::View.dependent_script(:highcharts) %> for rails app , must be added in the layout file of the application.

HighCharts example :


# set the library, to plot charts
Daru::View.plotting_library = :highcharts

# options for the charts
opts = {
      chart: {defaultSeriesType: 'line'},
      title: {
        text: 'Solar Employment Growth by Sector, 2010-2016'
        },

      subtitle: {
          text: 'Source: thesolarfoundation.com'
      },

      yAxis: {
          title: {
              text: 'Number of Employees'
          }
      },
      legend: {
          layout: 'vertical',
          align: 'right',
          verticalAlign: 'middle'
      },

      plotOptions: {
          # this is not working. Find the bug
          # series: {
          #     pointStart: 43934
          # }
      },
  }

# data for the charts
series_dt = ([{
      name: 'Tokyo',
      data: [7.0, 6.9, 9.5, 14.5, 18.4, 21.5, 25.2, 26.5, 23.3, 18.3, 13.9, 9.6]
  }, {
      name: 'London',
      data: [3.9, 4.2, 5.7, 8.5, 11.9, 15.2, 17.0, 16.6, 14.2, 10.3, 6.6, 4.8]
  }])

# initialize
@line_graph = Daru::View::Plot.new(series_dt, opts)

# Add this line in your view file, where you want to see you graph in web application. (It will put the html code of the line graph in web page)

<%=raw @line_graph.div %>

# Now refresh the page, you will be able to see your graph.

Nyaplot example :


# set the library, to plot charts (Default it is nyaplot only)
Daru::View.plotting_library = :nyaplot


# options for the charts
opts = {
  type: :bar
}

# Vector data for the charts
data_vector = Daru::Vector.new [:a, :a, :a, :b, :b, :c], type: :category
data_df = Daru::DataFrame.new({
  a: [1, 2, 4, -2, 5, 23, 0],
  b: [3, 1, 3, -6, 2, 1, 0],
  c: ['I', 'II', 'I', 'III', 'I', 'III', 'II']
  })
data_df.to_category :c

# initialize
@bar_graph1 = Daru::View::Plot.new(data_vector ,opts)
@bar_graph2 = Daru::View::Plot.new(data_df, type: :bar, x: :c)

# Add this line in your view file, where you want to see you graph in web application. (It will put the html code of the line graph in web page)

<%=raw @bar_graph1.div %>
<%=raw @bar_graph2.div %>

# Now refresh the page, you will be able to see your graph.

bundle install
bundle exec rails s

Now go to the http://localhost:3000/nyaplot to see the Nyaplot examples or http://localhost:3000/highcharts to see the Highcharts examples.

Sinatra application

The line <%= Daru::View.dependent_script(:highcharts) %> for sinatra app , must be added in the layout file of the application(inside the head tag).

# In side the `app.rb` user must do data analysis process using daru features and define the Daru::View::Plot class instance variables to pass into the webpages in the `view` files. You will understand this better, if you will try to run sinatra app present in the `spec/dummy_sinatra`

# Add this line in your view file, where you want to see you graph in web application. (It will put the html code of the line graph in web page)

<%= @line_graph.div %>

<%= @bar_graph1.div %>
<%= @bar_graph2.div %>

# Now refresh the page, you will be able to see your graph.

bundle install
bundle exec ruby app.rb

Now go to the http://localhost:4567/nyaplot to see the Nyaplot examples or http://localhost:4567/highcharts to see the Highcharts examples.

Nanoc application

Most of the things similar to Rails application (syntax of the view part of the application).

bundle install
bundle exec nanoc
bundle exec nanoc view

Now go to the http://localhost:3000/nyaplot to see the Nyaplot examples or http://localhost:3000/highcharts to see the Highcharts examples.

Update to latest js library. Additional command line

To update to the current highcharts.js directly from http://code.highcharts.com/”, you can always run

rake highcharts:update

And it will be copied to your adapters/js/highcharts_js directory.

Similarly for other libraries.

To update the all libraries Javascript file, run this command :

rake update_all

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

Generally I prefer to use bundle console for testing few codes and experimenting the gem repo.
