Simple Bar Chart Plugin with jQuery and Bootstrap - jchart

jchart is a lightweight jQuery plugin that renders a clean bar chart with raw data specified in Javascript arrays or in plain old HTML. Worked with Twitter's Bootstrap 3 to provide tooltip support on mouse hover.

How to use it:

1. Include the necessary jQuery javascript library and Boostrap 3 framework in the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

2. Include the jQuery jChart plugin after jQuery library.

<script src="jchart.js"></script>

3. Create a container for the bar chart that loads data from Javascript arrays.

<div id="demo"></div>

name: "North American Regional Population Loss 2014",
headers: ["Arizona","Michigan","Ontario","British Columbia","Texas"],
values: [250000,478000,88000,429000,423000],
footers: [100000,200000,300000,400000,500000],
colors: ["#1000ff","#006eff","#00b6ff","#00fff6","#00ff90"]

4. You can also specify the data in the Html with specific classes and data-* attributes.

<div id="bar_of_pies" data-sort="true" data-width="300" class="jChart chart-sm" name="My Favorite Pies">
<div class="define-chart-row" data-color="red" title="Pumpkin">13</div>
<div class="define-chart-row" data-color="gray" title="Pecan">24</div>
<div class="define-chart-row" data-color="green" title="Cherry">17</div>
<div class="define-chart-row" data-color="orange" title="Apple">26</div>
<div class="define-chart-row" data-color="black" title="Rhubarb">12</div>
<div class="define-chart-row" data-color="blue" title="Chocolate Cream">8</div>

<div class="define-chart-footer">10</div>
<div class="define-chart-footer">20</div>
<div class="define-chart-footer">30</div>

$(document).ready(function() {

5. Available options.

$(document).ready(function() {
width: 750, // A number specifying the pixel width of the chart
name: null, // The name of the chart, displayed at the top of the chart
type: "bar",
headers: null, // A Javascript array of bar labels
values: null,
footers: Array(), // A Javascript array of numeric values for each corresponding bar
sort: false,
sort_colors: false,
colors: Array(), // A Javascript array of colors that will loop back if needed
x_label: null

Change log:
