It’s just data

Sparklines for Minimalists

Joe Gregorio I am deeply impressed with the work being done on RedHanded, which is not only sparklines in Ruby, but they’re generating BMPs and PNGs from scratch. Wow.

Wow is an understatement.  I’m humbled.


If you’re interested in other sparklines implementations, you can take a look at sparkplot, which is a little Python module I wrote that uses matplotlib: [link]

Here’s an example of its use in visualizing trading data: [link]

There seems to be a new term for embedding sparklines in blog entries: datablogging.

Sparklines and Canvas Tag

Since I posted early last year about Edward Tufte’s Sparklines, the paper was updated and some implementations have sprung up (via Sam Ruby): James Byers wrote a PHP version of sparkline which unfortunately hasn’t been updated since...

I posted a small clarification to avoid confusion about the origin of datablogging and my take on it here.

Sparklines, wow

I only learned about sparklines today thanks to a post by Sam Ruby, where he mentions the Ruby (as in "ruby the programming language") library RedHanded. Sparklines are a concept by Edward Tufte, which he describes as "wordlike graphics, with an...

Sparklines are cool

If I had a link blog, I would link to the Sparkline PHP Graphing Library. (Found via Sam’s pointer to BitWorking and RedHanded.)...

Excerpt from Planet PHP at

Interesting. I’m syndicated on “Planet PHP,” but I’m not actually “Planet PHP.” How did the trackback code get confused? It links directly to my blog instead of the “Planet PHP” entry, but sucks in the wrong name.

I wonder if it’s a misconfiguration on my end? I just switched to WordPress and everything might not be set up correctly.

Adam - if you had trackbacked me, it would have worked as you expected.  Otherwise, I chase referrers.  Apparently, the first person to follow this particular link did so from the Planet PHP web site.  From that site’s feed, I pick up the title, link, and summary.

That is odd. I explicitly added you to the list of trackback URIs when I published the entry. Looking at it right now, WordPress claims to me that it pinged “http://www.intertwingly.net/blog/2005/04/28/Sparklines-for-Minimalists”. If I have the heart, I will dig into the code to see what’s actually going on.

Adam - I do see a POST to that address from your host’s IP address.

If you view source on this page, you will see that that is not the correct trackback URI.

Thanks. I didn’t quite get the concept that the trackback URI != the post URI, or that WordPress wouldn’t be smart enough to autodiscover the TB URI based upon the in-page meta-data.
