Zend Developer Zone:
Dynamically Creating Graphs and Charts with PHP and GDChart
August 14, 2008 @ 15:12:58

The Zend Developer Zone has a new tutorial posted today (from Vikram Vaswani) that focuses on making charts and graphs with the help of the GDChart extension for PHP.

This extension, which is freely available from PECL, can significantly reduce the amount of work involved in dynamically generating graphical representations of numerical data at run-time. Over the next few pages, I'll introduce you to this extension, illustrating its important features and showing you just how easy it is to get your Friday evening back.

The tutorial shows how to get and install the extension as well as including a few usage examples - a simple charting of values (with the different chart types defined), comparing more than one set of data, changing the aesthetics of the output and a detailed look at a few of the chart types' output.

GDChart & Fileinfo Releases

According to this new post from Ilia Alshanetsky's blog, he's wrapped up new versions of his PECL extensions, Fileinfo and GDChart.

Just finished packaging Fileinfo 1.0.3 that finally builds on both PHP 5.1 and 5.0 properly. You can download the new version by running "pecl install fileinfo" or download the tgz file from here.

I've also made the release of GDChart 0.2 that is nearly a complete rewrite of the extension, originally written by Rasmus that allows it to work with PHP 5.1. This extension wraps around the bundled gdchart library and allows you with just a few lines of code draw 20 different graphs types.

The GDChart package looks especially useful, making it a simple matter of feeding in the data you want to render and out popps a graph. Previously, there's been this functionality via other scripts, but it's nice to see something native...
