Chart data quickly with open source Charted

Posted to Software  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Charted is a tool used internally at Medium that they recently released into the wild. It’s for the quick-and-dirty times when you just need to see quick results.

Charted is open-sourced and available for anyone to use at charted.co. The publicly-hosted charted.co works with files that are already publicly accessible to anyone with the link (e.g., Dropbox share links). For protected or sensitive data, you can serve your own instance of Charted on your secure network, which is what we do at Medium.

It’s a stripped down charting tool built for a specific type of data, so there are of course limitations. But there’s also potential to customize for your own needs. Or if you have a simple time series that you frequently glance at, Charted might come in handy. [Thanks, Derek]
