QCharts is a powerful visual aid and a very handy tool to use when querying a lot of data from a database and sharing them between your team.

How to quick-install

  • Require QCharts via composer
composer require arnulfosolis/qcharts @dev
  • Installing QCharts using composer is pretty simple
    • Alternate installation would be to add directly QCharts to a target project.
composer install
  • Add the Bundles to the AppKernel.

    • QCharts\CoreBundle\CoreBundle
    • QCharts\FrontendBundle\FrontendBundle
    • QCharts\ApiBundle\ApiBundle
      • If API Documentation is required, use QCharts\DevApiBundle\DevApiBundle instead.
  • QCharts needs some configuration in the target project prior to the execution, please refer to the file under QCharts directory for a more in-depth installation guide.

    • A simple configuration would be:
#A minimum configuration of QCharts
  • Resolve QChart's User Interface on orm's definition to your User Class.

    • Refer to file for further details.
    • resolve_target_entities
  • QCharts requires access to your target's database, since QCharts requires persisting information, so:

php app/console doctrine:database:create
php app/console doctrine:schema:update --force
  • Since the project comes included with a web application, QCharts requires Assetic files to be dumped.
    • You have to register QChart's FrontendBundle in Assetic's Configuration.
php app/console assetic:dump

How to use

  • QCharts comes with three bundles.
    • The CoreBundle, which comes with all the important services needed to get your data formatted.
    • The ApiBundle that handles the QChart's API.
      • When using the DevApiBundle, you'll benefit of Nelmio's ApiDoc implementation (read DevApiBundle README for more information) under the route /api/doc.
    • And the client application laying in the FrontendBundle.
  • QCharts also comes with a client frontend application that comes with some QChart's tool management.
  • To start using it, login using the targeted project security measures, and start going through all the list of Requested Queries the developers have submitted.
  • To request a Query to be charted, you can go directly to /query/register.
    • Notice: The user has to hold the mapped role admin.
      • For more information about setting up the user roles, consult the file in the source directory of QCharts.
  • QCharts uses the first column in the table of the results from the requested Query to represent the X-Axis of the graph.
  • Have fun!

Future development

  • In time machine, compare snapshots
  • Reduce unnecessary snapshot files with redundant data.
