An elegant and friendly chart library for iOS

AAChartKit

AAChartKit is an elegant, friendly and easy to use chart library for iOS, based on the open source Highcharts JS libraries. AAChartKit is extremely powerful, easy to configure and a pleasure to use. Currently AAChartKit includes support for the following chart types: column chart, bar chart, area chart, area spline chart, line chart, spline chart, radar chart, polar chart, pie chart, bubble chart, pyramid chart, funnel chart, column range and area range chart. More chart types are planned to be supported. AAChartKit gives you easy and fast access to a wide range of chart types, hassle-free and quick to integrate into your own project.

Features

  1. Support up from iOS 6, ARC support.
  2. Powerful and easy to use. It supports column chart, bar chart, area chart, areaspline chart, line chart, spline chart, radar chart, polar chart, pie chart, bubble chart, pyramid chart, funnel chart, columnrange chart, arearange chart, mixed chart and other graphics. Support for more chart types is planned.
  3. The charts are interactive and animated. The animation effect is exquisite, delicate, smooth and beautiful.
  4. Supports chain programming syntax like Masonry
  5. AAChartView + AAChartModel = Chart. The AAChartKit follows a minimalist formula: Chart view + Chart model = The chart you want, just like the powerful and beautiful charts lib AAInfographics

Usage

The required 'pre' work

  1. Drag the AAChartKitLib folder into your project.

  2. Add the following to your .pch file.

#import "AAGlobalMacro.h"

The 'real' work

  1. Add the following to your view controller file:
#import "AAChartKit.h"
  1. Create an instance object of chart view:AAChartView
CGFloat chartViewWidth  = self.view.frame.size.width;
CGFloat chartViewHeight = self.view.frame.size.height-250;
_aaChartView = [[AAChartView alloc]init];
_aaChartView.frame = CGRectMake(0, 60, chartViewWidth, chartViewHeight);
//_aaChartView.scrollEnabled = NO;
//// set the content height of aaChartView
// _aaChartView.contentHeight = chartViewHeight;
[self.view addSubview:_aaChartView];
  1. Configure the chart model properties: AAChartModel
AAChartModel *aaChartModel= AAObject(AAChartModel)
.chartTypeSet(AAChartTypeColumn)
.titleSet(@"THE HEAT OF PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE")
.subtitleSet(@"Virtual Data")
.categoriesSet(@[@"Java",@"Swift",@"Python",@"Ruby", @"PHP",@"Go",@"C",@"C#",@"C++"])
.yAxisTitleSet(@"Degrees Celsius")
.seriesSet(@[
        AAObject(AASeriesElement)
        .nameSet(@"2017")
        .dataSet(@[@7.0, @6.9, @9.5, @14.5, @18.2, @21.5, @25.2, @26.5, @23.3, @18.3, @13.9, @9.6]),
        AAObject(AASeriesElement)
        .nameSet(@"2018")
        .dataSet(@[@0.2, @0.8, @5.7, @11.3, @17.0, @22.0, @24.8, @24.1, @20.1, @14.1, @8.6, @2.5]),
        AAObject(AASeriesElement)
        .nameSet(@"2019")
        .dataSet(@[@0.9, @0.6, @3.5, @8.4, @13.5, @17.0, @18.6, @17.9, @14.3, @9.0, @3.9, @1.0]),
        AAObject(AASeriesElement)
        .nameSet(@"2020")
        .dataSet(@[@3.9, @4.2, @5.7, @8.5, @11.9, @15.2, @17.0, @16.6, @14.2, @10.3, @6.6, @4.8]),
                 ])
;
  1. Draw the chart (this method is only called the first time you create an AAChartView instance object)
//The chart view object calls the instance object of AAChartModel and draws the final graphic
[_aaChartView aa_drawChartWithChartModel:aaChartModel];

🌹🌹🌹Congratulations! Everything was done!!! You will get what you want!!!🌈🌈🌈

Update chart content

if you want to refresh chart content,you should do something as follow.According to your actual needs, select the function that fits you.

  • Refresh the chart data (this method is recommended for updating the series data dynamically)
//Refresh the chart dynamically only when the series attribute of the AAChartModel object is updated
[_aaChartView aa_onlyRefreshTheChartDataWithChartModelSeries:aaChartModelSeriesArray];
  • Refresh the chart, minus the chart data (this method is recommended for subsequent refreshes after the first drawing of graphics has completed. If you want to update the chart data only, you should use the function aa_onlyRefreshTheChartDataWithChartModelSeries)
//Refresh the chart after the AAChartModel content is updated
[_aaChartView aa_refreshChartWithChartModel:aaChartModel];

Special instructions

Special chart types in AAChartKit

The pie chart as well as the bubble chart are special in AAChartKit. If you want to draw these types of charts, you need to prepare the property series of AAChartModel differently:

  • To draw a pie chart, you should configure the properties of AAChartModel like this:
   AAChartModel *chartModel= AAObject(AAChartModel)
    .chartTypeSet(AAChartTypePie)
    .titleSet(@"THE HEAT OF PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE")
    .subtitleSet(@"Virtual Data")
    .yAxisTitleSet(@"Degrees Celsius")
    .seriesSet(
               @[AAObject(AASeriesElement)
                 .nameSet(@"Percent")
                 .dataSet(@[
                            @[@"Java"  , @67],
                            @[@"Swift" , @44],
                            @[@"Python", @83],
                            @[@"OC"    , @11],
                            @[@"Ruby"  , @42],
                            @[@"PHP"   , @31],
                            @[@"Go"    , @63],
                            @[@"C"     , @24],
                            @[@"C#"    , @888],
                            @[@"C++"   , @66],
                            ]),
                 ]
               
               )
    ;
  • To draw a bubble chart, you should configure the properties of AAChartModel like this:
   AAChartModel *chartModel= AAObject(AAChartModel)
    .chartTypeSet(AAChartTypeBubble)
    .titleSet(@"THE HEAT OF PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE")
    .subtitleSet(@"Virtual Data")
    .yAxisTitleSet(@"Degrees Celsius")
    .seriesSet(
               @[
                 AAObject(AASeriesElement)
