Yew Charting Library

yew-chart is a collection of components that can be assembled to form charts for the Yew framework.

Here is a soil moisture/rainfall chart that has been produced using this library:

Here's another chart produced by this library, representing what is known as "Delta-T":

By leveraging these SVG-based components many types of charts can be formed with a great deal of flexibility. The library is intended as a toolkit that provides conveniences for rendering chart primitives. These primitives can be regarded at a similar level as SVG's primitives i.e. lines, polygons etc.

Example Plots

Two basic projects are given in the examples folder.

Line Chart

examples/basic is configured to output a basic line chart:

...and here's the entire Yew component that was used to generate it:

const WIDTH: f32 = 533.0;
const HEIGHT: f32 = 300.0;
const MARGIN: f32 = 50.0;
const TICK_LENGTH: f32 = 10.0;

fn app() -> Html {
    let end_date = Utc::now();
    let start_date = end_date.sub(Duration::days(4));
    let timespan = start_date..end_date;

    let circle_text_labeller = Rc::from(series::circle_text_label("Label")) as Rc<dyn Labeller>;

    let data_set = Rc::new(vec![
        (start_date.timestamp_millis(), 1.0, None),

    let h_scale = Rc::new(TimeScale::new(timespan, Duration::days(1))) as Rc<dyn Scale<Scalar = _>>;
    let v_scale = Rc::new(LinearScale::new(0.0..5.0, 1.0)) as Rc<dyn Scale<Scalar = _>>;

    let tooltip = Rc::from(series::y_tooltip()) as Rc<dyn Tooltipper<_, _>>;

    html! {
            <svg class="chart" viewBox={format!("0 0 {} {}", WIDTH, HEIGHT)} preserveAspectRatio="none">
                <Series<i64, f32>
                    x={MARGIN} y={MARGIN} width={WIDTH - (MARGIN * 2.0)} height={HEIGHT - (MARGIN * 2.0)} />

                    x1={MARGIN} y1={MARGIN} xy2={HEIGHT - MARGIN}
                    title={"Some Y thing".to_string()} />

                    x1={MARGIN} y1={HEIGHT - MARGIN} xy2={WIDTH - MARGIN}
                    title={"Some X thing".to_string()} />


If passing SeriesData around via Props, you'll need to provide a PartialEq implementation. Rust won't be able to derive one automatically for you as SeriesData holds a closure that cannot be compared. This doesn't end up being a problem though as should be performing an explicit pointer comparison when comparing Rc based values anyway; Rc contained references are immutable. Rc::ptr_eq is your friend in this scenario.

That all said, you probably won't be passing SeriesData around via props, but some other Rc of a model oriented data type which is to be mapped to it. Using ptr_eq is still the way to go there though as you'll get performance benefits.

Bar Chart

Using the same Yew view method code as above, series_type within the Series tag can be edited to display a bar chart instead by using the Bar keys.

<Series series_type={Type::Bar(BarType::Rise)} ... />

A rising bar chart

The bar chart can also be made to 'drop' instead of 'rise' with the enum variant BarType. This is particularly helpful if using negative axis values, where the bars are dropping from y = 0 or similar.

When the BarType is set to Drop, the same data from above produces the following graph.

As seen, the bars are set to go from the selected side to the datapoint. Since the axis range is from 0.0 to 5.0, and the first point is at (26-Mar, 1.0), the bar drops from 5.0 to 1.0.

<Series series_type={Type::Bar(BarType::Drop)} ... />

A dropping bar chart

One final example of this is in using a negative scale and negative values. In the following graph, the axis ranges from -5.0 to 0.0, and the first point is (01-Apr, -1.0).

Scatter Plot

examples/scatter is configured to output a basic scatter plot. The method by which this is accomplished is slightly different to that of the Line and Bar charts.
