Project description

CSV Bar
=======

Draw bar charts from CSV files in the terminal.

Requires either version 2 or 3 of [Python] (https://www.python.org/), including `pip`.


Installing
----------

Install with Pip: `pip install csvbar`.


Usage
-----

Say you have a CSV file such as:

```csv
Donor,Value
Friendly Society,49428.84
Limited Liability Partnership,96122.93
Other,233016.58
Registered Political Party,333058.01
Unincorporated Association,2656919.98
Company,3266514.88
Individual,10191197.0
Trade Union,42328877.05
```

You can then:

```bash
$ csvbar data.csv

Friendly Society ▌ 49,428.84
Limited Liability Partnership ▌ 96,122.93
Other ▌ 233,016.58
Registered Political Party ▌ 333,058.01
Unincorporated Association ███ 2,656,919.98
Company ███ 3,266,514.88
Individual ████████████ 10,191,197.00
Trade Union ██████████████████████████████████████████████████ 42,328,877.05

```

It also accepts data on STDIN, useful if you're using something like [CSV Kit] (https://github.com/onyxfish/csvkit).
