> UI-Kit for Rapidly Creating Dashboards
I made component-kit a project that mixes both UI and Charting Components. This makes it easier to get a dashboard up and running in a few minutes cake. This Library allows you to create charts individually as well as compose them together.
How it Works
Component-Kit under the hood is powered by React, D3, and React-Faux-DOM. If you're interested in knowing why I chose these three to power this library keep reading, otherwise scroll down to the examples. As I began building this Library I realized that both React and D3 want to be in charge of rendering and updating the charting components. I knew I wanted to leverage React's efficient rendering capabilities, but I also wanted to be able to use D3's rich manipulation and selection functionality. After researching for a little while I discovered React-Faux-DOM, a library that provides a light-weight object-like DOM that is bare enough to support all of D3 API and then can be converted to react elements. This gave me a few benefits. I get to use D3 like anyone normally would without react. Second, since react is in charge or rendering and updating the view I don't have to think about how the charts will react to updates in data, essentially can disregard for the most part D3's General Update Pattern as React will update them accordingly.
The State of Component-Kit and Whats Next
I've just recently began working on component-kit, so there are a few charting
component that are finished (XYAxis, LineChart, AreaChart, BarChart, PieChart,
RadarChart, ScatterPlot). As of now you can compose the finished charts together
to visualize the same data-set in different ways on the same axes, as well as
compose different data sets on the same axes. What I need to finish is the RadialBarChart,
and TreeMap. Also, I will be adding animation to the charts with
Most of the Layout components that are included in the library are also finished.
I am also open to taking requests for charts that developers want. Big thanks to @alaingalvan for creating the logo and brand.
npm install --save component-kit
Make sure to import the styles for the UI/Layout Portion of
component-kit. The charting
component-kit doesn't require the css, but the layout components require it to render properly.
It is essentially just Bootstraps grid system. So if you have bootstrap already on your project
you don't need the css from
