Axis for WordPress


Axis is a plugin for creating fancy D3-based charts in WordPress, using axisJS, an Angular-based framework for streamlined chart creation.

It is based off Quartz Chartbuilder and created by Times Digital Development. Please note that this is a work in progress and currently under active development.

Note: We do not check the WordPress support forums. Please direct any support queries to the GitHub issue queue. The actual chart creation panel is a separate project called axisJS. For anything regarding that, please use its own, separate issue queue.


  1. Unzip and upload the Axis directory to /wp-content/plugins/.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Create charts by clicking the “chart” button in TinyMCE.


How is this related to Quartz’s ChartBuilder

The underlying framework, axisJS, was originally created as an Angular-based rewrite of ChartBuilder. Much of the image generation code is taken from that, as is the interface layout.
