Easy to use and highly customizable charts library for iOS

Features:
  • Bars - plain, stacked, grouped, horizontal, vertical
  • Scatter
  • Line / Multiple lines
  • Areas
  • Bubble
  • Multiple axis
  • Multiple labels (x axis)
  • Candlestick
  • Cubic line
  • Everything is customizable - views (user can generate arbitrary UIViews for each chartpoint, so everything is possible), animations, units, axis, etc.
  • Charts can be combined with each other (e.g. lines + bars + circles)
  • Complex interactivity support
  • Choice to use core graphics (directly on chart's context) or UIViews, or combine both.
  • Easy to use: no learning curve, no complicated settings - just assemble chart using well defined components.

Installation
CocoaPods

Add to your Podfile:

Swift 2.x:

use_frameworks!
pod 'SwiftCharts', '~> 0.3'

Note: To use Swift 2.x / master, you need Xcode 7+

Swift 1.2 (not actively maintained):

use_frameworks!
pod 'SwiftCharts', :git => 'https://github.com/i-schuetz/SwiftCharts.git', :branch => 'swift1.2'

Alternatively:

use_frameworks!
pod 'SwiftCharts', '~> 0.2'

And then:

pod install

Import the framework in your code:

import SwiftCharts
Carthage

Add to your Cartfile:

Swift 2.x:

github "i-schuetz/SwiftCharts" ~> 0.3

Swift 1.2:

github "i-schuetz/SwiftCharts" ~> 0.2
Quick start

Multiline chart:

let chartConfig = ChartConfigXY(
    xAxisConfig: ChartAxisConfig(from: 2, to: 14, by: 2),
    yAxisConfig: ChartAxisConfig(from: 0, to: 14, by: 2)
)

let chart = LineChart(
    frame: CGRectMake(0, 70, 300, 500),
    chartConfig: chartConfig,
    xTitle: "X axis",
    yTitle: "Y axis",
    lines: [
        (chartPoints: [(2.0, 10.6), (4.2, 5.1), (7.3, 3.0), (8.1, 5.5), (14.0, 8.0)], color: UIColor.redColor()),
        (chartPoints: [(2.0, 2.6), (4.2, 4.1), (7.3, 1.0), (8.1, 11.5), (14.0, 3.0)], color: UIColor.blueColor())
    ]
)

self.view.addSubview(chart.view)

Bars chart:

let chartConfig = BarsChartConfig(
    valsAxisConfig: ChartAxisConfig(from: 0, to: 8, by: 2)
)

let chart = BarsChart(
    frame: CGRectMake(0, 70, 300, 500),
    chartConfig: chartConfig,
    xTitle: "X axis",
    yTitle: "Y axis",
    bars: [
        ("A", 2),
        ("B", 4.5),
        ("C", 3),
        ("D", 5.4),
        ("E", 6.8),
        ("F", 0.5)
    ],
    color: UIColor.redColor(),
    barWidth: 20
)

self.view.addSubview(chart.view)
self.chart = chart
Concept:
  • Layer architecture, which makes it extremely easy to customize charts, create new types, combine existing ones and add interactive elements.

  • Creation of views via a generator function, which makes it easy to use custom views in any layer.

Main Components:
1. Layers:

A chart is the result of composing layers together. Everything is a layer - axis, guidelines, dividers, line, circles, etc. The idea is to have losely coupled components that can be easily changed and combined. This is for example the structure of a basic chart, which shows a line with circles:

ScreenShot

Following a more low level example, to provide an insight into the layer system. Note that most examples are written like this, in order to provider maximal flexibility.

let labelSettings = ChartLabelSettings(font: ExamplesDefaults.labelFont)

let chartPoints = [(2, 2), (3, 1), (5, 9), (6, 7), (8, 10), (9, 9), (10, 15), (13, 8), (15, 20), (16, 17)].map{ChartPoint(x: ChartAxisValueInt($0.0), y: ChartAxisValueInt($0.1))}

let xValues = Array(stride(from: 2, through: 16, by: 2)).map {ChartAxisValueInt($0, labelSettings: labelSettings)}
let yValues = Array(stride(from: 0, through: 20, by: 2)).map {ChartAxisValueInt($0, labelSettings: labelSettings)}

let xModel = ChartAxisModel(axisValues: xValues, axisTitleLabel: ChartAxisLabel(text: "Axis title", settings: labelSettings))
let yModel = ChartAxisModel(axisValues: yValues, axisTitleLabel: ChartAxisLabel(text: "Axis title", settings: labelSettings))
let chartFrame = ExamplesDefaults.chartFrame(self.view.bounds)

let chartSettings = ExamplesDefaults.chartSettings
let coordsSpace = ChartCoordsSpaceLeftBottomSingleAxis(chartSettings: chartSettings, chartFrame: chartFrame, xModel: xModel, yModel: yModel)
let (xAxis, yAxis, innerFrame) = (coordsSpace.xAxis, coordsSpace.yAxis, coordsSpace.chartInnerFrame)

// create layer with line
let lineModel = ChartLineModel(chartPoints: chartPoints, lineColor: UIColor(red: 0.4, green: 0.4, blue: 1, alpha: 0.2), lineWidth: 3, animDuration: 0.7, animDelay: 0)
let chartPointsLineLayer = ChartPointsLineLayer(xAxis: xAxis, yAxis: yAxis, innerFrame: innerFrame, lineModels: [lineModel])

// view generator - creates circle view for each chartpoint
let circleViewGenerator = {(chartPointModel: ChartPointLayerModel, layer: ChartPointsLayer, chart: Chart) -> UIView? in
    return ChartPointCircleView(center: chartPointModel.screenLoc, size: CGSizeMake(20, 20), settings: ChartPointCircleViewSettings(animDuration: 0.5))
}
// create layer that uses the view generator
let chartPointsCircleLayer = ChartPointsViewsLayer(xAxis: xAxis, yAxis: yAxis, innerFrame: innerFrame, chartPoints: chartPoints, viewGenerator: circleViewGenerator, displayDelay: 0, delayBetweenItems: 0.05)

// create layer with guidelines
var settings = ChartGuideLinesDottedLayerSettings(linesColor: UIColor.blackColor(), linesWidth: ExamplesDefaults.guidelinesWidth, axis: .XAndY)
let guidelinesLayer = ChartGuideLinesDottedLayer(xAxis: xAxis, yAxis: yAxis, innerFrame: innerFrame, settings: settings)

let chart = Chart(
    frame: chartFrame,
    layers: [
        xAxis,
        yAxis,
        guidelinesLayer,
        chartPointsLineLayer,
        chartPointsCircleLayer
    ]
)

self.view.addSubview(chart.view)
self.chart = chart

Layers are semantic units that can add views to the chart, or can simply draw in the chart's context for a better performance. Which makes more sense depends on the requirements.

2. View generators:

View based layers will use a generator function to generate chart point views. This function receives the complete state of each chartpoint (model data, screen location) and produces an UIView, allowing any type of customization.

Hello world:

There's a hello world included in the examples, similar to the above code, with a bit more explanations. Change some properties of the generated views, copy paste the chartPointsLineLayer used in the snippet above, and pass it to the chart's layers, to display a line behind the views, and you have already mastered the main concepts!

Important!

  • Don't forget to always keep a strong reference to the chart instance or it will be released, which leads to axis & labels not showing.

  • If you have a lot of axis labels in your chart it may be necessary to do the calculation of the coordinate space in the background, to avoid possible delays which are noticeable during transitions or scrolling. See ScrollExample or MultipleAxesExample example for this.
