A few months ago I posted looking for some customizable graph windows. What I found was there was ‘click to graph’, a package from Inductive Automation that didn’t quite work the way I wanted (yet) and was also a bit dated. So I took that and reworked it, and now want to share my work with you! I’ve called it ‘Better Graphs’ and you can check out the user guide (which can also be shared with your operators so they know what everything does):
The major change that I’ve made is that before, most of the configuration was being stored in SQL and was being passed back and forth. I moved the live data of a chart configuration over to client tags, and use sql only for storing and recalling graphs. Also, before not everything was being saved, and I’ve modified it so that absolutely all the parameters of a tag pen, axes, and subplots are saved and recalled.
I’ve made a text installation guide that’s included with all the other files you need, as well as a youtube video to walk you through quickly how to set it up. You can check out everything and find the link to download (on github) here:
