I don't know how pretty, but you can judge for yourself.

I'm trying to improve this, help is welcome. As it stands now, i think it looks pretty good. Feel free to play with the colors/fonts.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use GD::Graph::bars3d; use GD::Graph::Data; use GD::Graph::colour qw{ add_colour colour_list }; my $username = 'crazyinsomniac'; my $month = 'April'; my $year = '2002'; my @days = ( [1..30], [qw{ 10 1 -1 22 33 1 6 7 4 8 9 34 112 -2 -12 33 22 33 1 6 7 22 33 1 6 7 66 -66 0 1 }], ); my $graph = new GD::Graph::bars3d( 600, 400 ); add_colour('#66CC66'); add_colour('#00fbff'); add_colour('#000000'); $graph->set( y_label => 'XP change', # xp is not Reputation, thanks grinder x_label => 'DAY OF MONTH', box_axis => 1, x_tick_number => undef, # accentclr => '#000000', # this be the bar box edges accentclr => '#009999', # this be the bar box edges # dclrs => [ map{'#66CC66'} 1..@days ], # data color dclrs => [ map{'#00fbff'} 1..@days ], # data color title => "${username}'s XP gains/losses per day for $month, $y +ear" ) or die "$!"; my $days = GD::Graph::Data->new(); $days->copy_from(\@days); $graph->set(show_values => 1 ); ## show values $graph->set_values_font(GD::gdMediumBoldFont); my $gd = $graph->plot( $days ); $gd->interlaced('true'); open(FOUT,'>'.__FILE__.'.png') or die $!; binmode(FOUT); print FOUT $gd->png; close(FOUT)
update: ya know, caching these chart images might be nice, so you can do a per month lookup, with the current month being dynamic of course .

update: i overheard jcwren say something in the cb, so i tweaked a little more (stuff in readmore)

#!/usr/bin/perl -w =head JC Graph This was written for chris, aka jcwren, the greatest isp on earth, in response to http://perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=171725 In particular, it was written to replace the baaad php chart generation counterpart for use at http://www.tinymicros.com/pm/index.php?goto=PlotChart&nodeid=10277 It mimicks the look pretty well, even though GD::Graph::bars3d does/can not guarantee spacing between the bars and the text. I say it looks pretty good.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
