I’d like to introduce the “Quick filter” plugin for Taucharts. As you can guess, it is designed to help rapidly filter data on your chart by both measure and date/time fields. Along with that, the plugin also visualises the distribution of values for these fields.
For example, I’d like show how it could be used in a Process Control Chart (similar one we have in Targetprocess). Each dot is a completed card in our system, the Y-axis represents how many days it was in progress, the X-axis shows the day when it was done, and color encodes type of entity.
These controls allow us to scale the chart in two dimensions, but you can show a control for fields which aren’t represented on the chart:
plugins: [ tauCharts.api.plugins.get('quick-filter')(['your', 'fields']) // other plugins ]
Some pieces of information for specialists: we used d3.svg.brush for this plugin and it fit to our needs much better than the other html/js sliders considered.
