Class-based reports for elegant data views.

Project description


Django Report Tools aims to take the pain out of putting charts, graphs
and tables into your Django projects. It provides a nice class-based
framework to restore a little bit of elegance to your application's
complex data views.


* Define your reports using the same syntax as Django forms and models
* Use built-in 'renderers' to avoid the hassle of dealing with various
charting technologies (currently only the Google Visualization Toolkit is supported)
* Enter chart data in a standardised format
* Build a simple API, allowing for the creation of chart exports or a 'save to dashboard' feature.

Release Notes - 0.2.1

* Fixed a JSON encoding bug that broke Python 2.6 compatibility.
* Added a tox.ini and test support so I can test and prevent these sorts of
bug in the future.

Release Notes - 0.2

* Updated for Django 1.5 compatibility
* Fixed an XSS vector in the Google Charts renderer
* Updated to the most recent GViz API

A fully-functional example report

The following example implements a report with a simple pie chart, rendered
using the Google Visualization Toolkit.


from report_tools.reports import Report
from report_tools.chart_data import ChartData
from report_tools.renderers.googlecharts import GoogleChartsRenderer
from report_tools import charts

class MyReport(Report):
renderer = GoogleChartsRenderer

pie_chart = charts.PieChart(
title="A nice, simple pie chart",

def get_data_for_pie_chart(self):
data = ChartData()

data.add_column("Pony Type")

data.add_row(["Blue", 20])
data.add_row(["Pink", 20])
data.add_row(["Magical", 1])

return data
