Gantt chart

Show event timings and durations across categories

Updated a month ago to v4.1.0 by Flourish team

How to use this template

This template is great for showing project schedules. Each gantt is an event or task showing its start and end dates or times as well as the main category they belong to.

Data requirements

Your data would show one event per row as in this example:

start_date end_date project assignee department progress
01/05/2019 04/05/2019 Get oranges Biff Preparation 0.9
03/05/2019 07/05/2019 Get bowls Biff Preparation 1
08/05/2019 13/05/2019 Squeeze oranges Kipper Production 0.4
09/05/2019 12/05/2019 Filter juice Kipper Sales 0.6
13/05/2019 19/05/2019 Taste juice Biff Marketing 0.3

Usage

Your data should at least have a start and an end date or time as well as some project tasks or events - project in above example.

You would also typically define a grouping variable that categorizes your events by for example person or department responsible for the event - for example assignee in the table above.

You can optionally add a second grouping variable that adds some sensible colors to your gannts - department above. This coloring variable can be discrete as well as numerical like for example an importance score.

A progress variable between 0 and 1 (representing percentages between 0 and 100%) can further show how far along the process each task is.

Date and time handling

In order for your gantt bars to cover the period from the start all the way to the end date (or time) each event's end date should always be the first date after the event has finished. For example, if the event finishes on the 3rd of May your end_date would be 04/05/2019.

If you wanted to show an hourly gantt chart, you would need to follow the following datetime format: 2019-01-05T09:00:00.000Z, which - in this case - represents 9AM on the 1st of May 2019. In a next step you would use the X axis settings to to show only hours and minutes.

This section documents API usage specific to this template, so for an introduction we suggest you refer to the generic API documentation instead.

Template data

There are two different formats in which you can supply data to this template. Which one will be more convenient for you likely depends on the source of your data, as described below.

Array of objects with arbitrary keys, and a bindings object

This format is most likely useful when you have data from an external source, such as CSV data loaded from d3-dsv. You should supply this attached to the opts.data, which might look like:

    {
        gantt: [
            { "GanttHeader1": ..., "GanttHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "GanttHeader1": ..., "GanttHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "GanttHeader1": ..., "GanttHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }

... but with the keys being the column headers from your source data instead. To tell the API how these values from each column should be associated with the keys that the template is expecting, you must also supply an object attached to opts.bindings. (The meanings of the keys in the bindings object are documented below.) The minimal bindings you can supply for this template are as shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/gantt",
    version: "4",
    bindings: {
        gantt: {
            start_date: "GanttHeader1",
            end_date: "GanttHeader2"
        }
    },
    data: {
        gantt: [
            { "GanttHeader1": ..., "GanttHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "GanttHeader1": ..., "GanttHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "GanttHeader1": ..., "GanttHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

All possible bindings that you can supply are shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/gantt",
    version: "4",
    bindings: {
        gantt: {
            start_date: "GanttHeader1",
            end_date: "GanttHeader2",
            task: "GanttHeader3",
            grouping: "GanttHeader4",
            color: "GanttHeader5",
            progress: "GanttHeader6",
            metadata: ["GanttHeader7", "GanttHeader8", ...],
            filter: "GanttHeader9"
        }
    },
    data: {
        gantt: [
            { "GanttHeader1": ..., "GanttHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "GanttHeader1": ..., "GanttHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "GanttHeader1": ..., "GanttHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

(As before, the keys containing "Header" would be replaced by column names from your data source.)

Array of objects with template-defined keys

There is an alternative format you can use, which is likely to be easier to use if your data is not from a spreadsheet source. With this alternative format you supply your data to the template as an array of objects, attached to opts.data, where the keys must be those used by the template, as documented below. In this case there is no need to supply a bindings object, since the key names are already those expected by the template. The required properties in the data object are as follows (scroll down for a description of what each property is):

{
template: "@flourish/gantt",
version: "4",
data: {
    gantt: [
        {
            start_date: ...,
            end_date: ...,
            metadata: [...]
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

And the full list of all possible properties is as follows:

{
template: "@flourish/gantt",
version: "4",
data: {
    gantt: [
        {
            start_date: ...,
            end_date: ...,
            task: ...,
            grouping: ...,
            color: ...,
            progress: ...,
            metadata: [...],
            filter: ...
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

Meanings of the template data keys:

  • gantt.start_date: start_date
  • gantt.end_date: The end date or time of the event. If working with days, the end date should be the first day after the end date. So if your event stretches from 1/1. and ends on the 5/1. your end date should be the 6/1. This way your gantt bar will stretch across the last day of your project or task.
  • gantt.task: task
  • gantt.grouping: grouping
  • gantt.color: color
  • gantt.progress: Supply a decimal number between 0 and 1 representing the progress from 0-100%.
  • gantt.metadata: Add any columns here containing extra content to show in the popups
  • gantt.filter: If set, creates a filter menu or time slider
