Amazing Animated Charts
Displaying data to your website visitors in a way that's easily understood and visually appealing is a tough task. The Charts stack from seyDesign makes this an easy process for RapidWeaver users.
Just add the Charts stack to your page, select the type of chart you want to display, then specify the CSV file with your data. Charts does the rest, displaying a fully customizable colored graph which, depending on the type of chart you want displayed, can even be animated!
A Chart for Every Occasion
The Charts stack supports line and bar graphs (which can be animated) as well as donut and pie charts, and even a meter gauge. Each type of charts comes with its own customizable options, giving you extensive control over how you want your chart displayed.
Note: The Charts stack is not currently responsive. We certainly hope to improve this in a future free update. In the meantime, some of our existing users have had good success with placing Charts within the free RottenApple or UsefulStack from Stacks4Stacks. This configuration of stacks can be used to hide Charts on smaller screens and display alternative content (like a screen-grabbed image of the orgional chart). Of course, any charts not exceeding 320px wide will work fine on mobile as they are.

Follow these steps for getting this stack setup and working in your RapidWeaver website.
- Once installed into Stacks and RapidWeaver, create a new Stacks page in your project (if you don't already have a page to place this stack on)
- Open your Stacks library and search for 'charts'. Drag and drop a copy of the stack into your page
- Drag and drop a suitable data file into the resources section of the RapidWeaver sidebar
- In the Chart stack settings, enter the file name of this data file
- Customize any of the other Chart stack settings, like the type of chart and the color scheme
- Preview the page in RapidWeaver to make sure everything is working as expected. Export or publish your project when done
These are some working example of the Chart stack.
