I forked flot back when I needed some of my patches properly versioned and the official project had stagnated (see here), but after school, moving, getting a new job and the comeback of the original project on google code I have no reason to continue working on this fork or to maintain it.
Short version: Please use the official project on Google Code.
flot is a jQuery
plugin-of-sorts which uses
canvas, among other things to draw
IOLA, I started maintaining
a fork of the library around the time of
this blog post
primarily because I needed some things fixed/added for my use of the library
at work and there wasn't much work being done on it at the time.
Since then the guys at IOLA have gotten back into things but I've made a lot of changes and additions the library and so I'm going to continue my work on it. I may change the name at some point.
The easiest way to get started using flot is to try out some of the examples
that come with the download. Then check out
gives a general overview of how to use the library. Lastly, when you need
some of the more advanced features, start perusing
goes into much more detail.
Another great idea is to stop by the wiki which has information on where to obtain support and news/updates on new developments.
Since my development on flot is done using
git and it's hosted
on GitHub - anyone can contribute! Fork the project on GitHub, clone it and
email me a patch or just maintain your own version customized for your own
needs with nearly zero overhead!
