Setting the Title

Made with Plotapi

You can create beautiful, interactive, and engaging visualisations like this one with Plotapi in any programming language.

Preamble

In [1]:
from plotapi import Sankey

Sankey.set_license("your username", "your license key")

Introduction

Plotapi Sankey allows setting a title for the diagram by passing in a string. It also allows setting the font-size.

As we can see, we have set our license details in the preamble with Sankey.set_license().

Dataset

Plotapi Sankey expects a list of dictionary items, these will define the flow between a source and a target.

In [2]:
links = [
    {"source":"Group A", "target":"Rank 1", "value": 1000},
    {"source":"Group B", "target":"Rank 1", "value": 300},
    {"source":"Group B", "target":"Rank 2", "value": 600},
    {"source":"Group B", "target":"Rank 3", "value": 400},
    {"source":"Rank 1", "target":"Club A", "value": 700},
    {"source":"Rank 1", "target":"Club B", "value": 400},
    {"source":"Rank 1", "target":"Club C", "value": 200},
    {"source":"Rank 2", "target":"Club B", "value": 200},
    {"source":"Rank 2", "target":"Club C", "value": 400},
    {"source":"Rank 3", "target":"Withdrawn", "value": 400},
    {"source":"Club A", "target":"The Most Amazing Prize", "value": 500},
]

We can add many source's and target's in any arrangement.

Visualisation

To include a diagram title, we can pass the desired string into the title parameter. The title font-size is controlled by the title_font_size parameter.

Here we're using .show() which outputs to a Jupyter Notebook cell, however, we may want to output to an HTML file with .to_html() instead. More on the different output methods later!

Be sure to interact with the visualisation to see what the settings can do!

In [4]:
Sankey(links, colors="monsters",
       title="Plotapi Sankey with a Title",
       title_font_size=20).show()

You can do so much more than what's presented in this example, and we'll cover this in later sections. If you want to see the full list of growing features, check out the Plotapi Documentation.
