Python SVG Charting Library

Project description

svg.charts is a pure-python library for generating charts and graphs using Scalable Vector Graphics.


svg.charts depends heavily on lxml and cssutils. Thanks to the contributors of those projects for stable, performant, standards-based packages.

Thanks to Sean E. Russel for creating the SVG::Graph Ruby package from which this Python port was originally derived.

Thanks to Leo Lapworth for creating the SVG::TT::Graph package which the Ruby port was based on.

Thanks to Stephen Morgan for creating the TT template and SVG.

Getting Started

svg.charts has some examples (taken directly from the reference implementation) in tests/ These examples show sample usage of the various chart types. They should provide a good starting point for learning the usage of the library.

An example of using svg.charts in a CherryPy web app can be found in If the site is working, you can see the rendered output here.

svg.charts also provides API documentation.
