FnordMetric HTML5 API Reference

The HTML5 API is still a Work In Progress — Pull Requests welcome!


The FnordMetric UI HTML5 API allows you to plugin real-time data and charts into any website without having to write any JavaScript code. This is achieved by including a JavaScript library and using the FnordMetric HTML5 components.

The JavaScript library fnordmetric.js is bundled with FnordMetric Server, to include it put this line into your HTML file:

<!-- include fnordmetric.js from fnordmetric-server-host:port -->
<script src='http://fnordmetric-server-host:port/s/fnordmetric.js' type='text/javascript'></script>

<!-- example: include fnordmetric.js from localhost:8080 -->
<script src='http://localhost:8080/s/fnordmetric.js' type='text/javascript'></script>

Component: <fm-chart>

The <fm-chart> tag executes a ChartSQL query and displays the result as a chart. For Example:

<fm-chart style="width: 800px;">

      time AS x, value AS y FROM ...;

These are the valid html attributes for <fm-chart> tags:
