I have a set of number data in properties under subtrees. Anyone knows of a food way to plot this in a graph, a basic line chart?

The headers are nested, not all numbers are under the same level.

If not in emacs, what software would you recommend?

I remember seeing a way to so that with python and octave, check the org babble documentation.


Did you mean this:

which is based on gnuplot?

I haven't heard of before but it seems easy enough (I only want to create a simple graph with x and y).

I'll keep looking into it, need to get my date sorted so it's in a table, at least.

@jrss Actually I was referring to this. But I'm sure there is a way to do what you want with only elisp and gnuplot.


@jrss @ljwrites I hacked something together for this to make sure my estimated page counts (in properties) summed up below 15, but I think it could be modified to support plotting instead.

In an elisp code block, I copied and pasted the definition of the built in org function org-property-values and modified it to allow duplicate values. With that I bet you could have your elisp block generate an org table, and then use org-plot: orgmode.org/manual/Org-Plot.ht
