d3 simplecharts

d3-simpleCharts offers you direct access to a few d3 basic charts and let you add them into your WordPress posts fast and easy.

Is it possible to have multiple charts on the same WP post or page?

Good point & question !

YES indeed, the software is written so that it hides all the (= ugly) complexity of accounting of many separate charts + styles on the same page of WP.

So, you may have many pretty charts on the same page with their own original CSS styles attached to each one, independently. Everything is perfectly under your control transparently.

Is it possible to embed a single chart to some exact position of post / page?

YES, you can now use 2 different methods to do this:

  • Before calling shortcode [simpleChart] manually write (in WP's HTML mode) chart's placeholder(s) (often, DIV or SPAN tags in HTML). Take a look 'chartid' option on manual.
  • Generating bare chart directly from JavaScript function simpleChart() and letting it create placeholder automatically.

How can I develope my own fancy XYZ or ABC around this code and get it included, too?

So, there is no user manual at all for this WordPress plugin inside download, huh?

Online manual & reference is building up gradually on GitHub's Wiki over here:

Also, we recommend (on Windows) to use TortoisesSVN client together with GitHub. It really takes the pain away from learning Git. Here is a nice tutorial about its use.
