Util for generating unicode text based sparkline bargraphs from lists of numbers

Project description

About sparkblocks

sparkblocks is a Python module that provides a single function, spark() which takes a list of numbers (ints or floats) and outputs a string containing a unicode character (9601-9608) sparklines bargraph representation of the numbers.

It is based on the spark tool by Zach Holman, and the original Twitter sparkline generator by Alex Kerin.


The library can be installed from PyPi using pip:

pip install py-sparkblocks

Or cloned from Github using git:

git clone git://
cd py-sparkblocks
python install


>>> from sparkblocks import spark
>>> print(spark([1, 2, 0.2, 3.1, 2]))
