Features

Embedded Spreadsheet Editor

You can add or modify the chart data using an embedded spreadsheet editor implemented with Handsontable (Handsontable CE 6.2.2).

This feature gives you many advantages:

  • Faster data editing. (compared to standard chart plugins that use input field)
  • The ability to paste data available from other spreadsheet editors like Excel, OpenOffice Calc, Google Sheets, and more.
  • The possibility to export the chart data to external spreadsheets.

Live Preview

Easily preview the chart with a single click directly from the chart editor available in the back end.

Labels

Optionally include dataset labels to help the user better understand the data. The labels, when clicked, can optionally enable or disable specific datasets.

Tooltips

The chart can optionally display tooltips when the user hovers over specific data points.

You can customize the tooltips in terms of style, with options to control typography, colors, and spacing. Regarding content, with dedicated settings to add titles, prefixes, suffixes, footer information, and more.

Scales Options

Common

This category of options allows you to define the basic configuration of a scale. Specifically, whether to display or not a scale, the position of the scale (Bottom, Top, etc.), the type of scale (the available types are Category, Linear, Logarithmic, and Radial), and whether the scale data are stacked.

Gridlines

Customize the gridlines of the chart with options to configure their colors, the line width, whether to draw them on the chart area, and more.

Title

Customize the title of each scale by using custom font size, font family, font style, font color, and more.

Tick

These options allow you to customize the small lines between the axis and the labels (ticks) and the axis labels.

Here you can configure the tick order, the automatic rotation of the tick labels, set a label prefix or suffix, customize the typography of the labels, and more.

Options

Use this section to control advanced options like the number of ticks available in an axis, whether to force a scale to begin at zero, the percentage of space occupied by chart elements like the bar of a bar chart, and more.

Time

This chart plugin supports time scales. Time scales use the date-fns date utility library and support time format expressed with unicode tokens.

Here you can customize the time format for the chart and the tooltips, define the minimum and maximum values of the time scale, and select the unit (E.g. Year, Month, Day, etc.) and the unit step size.

Chart models

The chart options included in UberChart reflect, for the most part, the options supported by the Chart.js library. However, understanding and using all these options is quite complex, especially at the begging.

For this reason, we have included a feature named ”models” to simplify the chart creation process and improve the reusability of the chart.

In general, you can use the models to:

  • Quickly create the most common types of charts without dealing with the configuration options.
  • Reuse particularly complex chart configurations.
  • Reuse chart configurations that reflect the site brand guidelines.

The plugin comes by default with 32 ready-to-use models, but you can create an unlimited number of custom models.

For example, let’s say that your WordPress site includes graphic card reviews, and you want to have bar charts to compare parameters like benchmark results, prices, etc. In that case, you can create a dedicated chart model that allows you to reuse a customized bar chart configuration (with custom bar colors and dimensions, custom typography, etc.) for all your bar charts.

Dataset customization

You can customize each chart dataset based on your specific needs. With the dataset options, you can, for example, specify the colors of a dataset, the line tension, the style of the single data points, and more.

Custom thousands and decimal separator

The charts can show numeric values with custom thousands and decimal separators.

This feature can be helpful to properly format the currency values displayed in the chart based on the specific currency and the targeted audience.

Support for a high number of datasets

The plugin support charts with a maximum of one million data points.

Note that the plugin might automatically decrease this limit based on the PHP configuration.

Maintenance tasks

We have included maintenance tasks to perform special operations like bulk deleting data, resetting the plugin options, and adding the default models.

Size and responsive options

Control the chart’s size and responsive behavior with the dedicated options.

You can, for example, set the size of the chart container, configure a margin for the chart, select whether to maintain or not the chart aspect ratio with mobile devices, and more.
