Create an Line plot


data (list) – A relational data set (for example, list of dicts/lists/tuples describing each row)

Keyword Arguments:
  • x (str or int) – Identify the column to specify x-axis point value
  • y (str or int) – Identify the column to specify y-axis point value
  • colour (str or int) – Identify the column to specify the line to which each point belongs
  • id (str or int) – Identify the column to define the unique id of each point
  • label (str or int) – Identify the column to define the label of each point
  • size (str or int) – Identify the column to determine the size of each point
  • width (int) – the width of the plot including axes
  • height (int) – the height of the plot including axes
  • palette (object) – a ContinuousPalette or DiscretePalette instance to control line colour
  • marker_manager (object) – a MarkerManager instance to control marker appearance
  • smoothing (float) – smoothing factor to apply to lines, 0.0=no smoothing
  • line_width (int) – specify the width of the lines in pixels
  • font_height (int) – the height of the font for text labels
  • text_attributes (dict) – SVG attribute name value pairs to apply to labels
