Readme for hsparklines-0.1.0

[back to package description]

Sparklines are high content to size ratio minigraphs inspired by Edward Tufte.

The focus of a sparkline is to provide additional context inline with text
so users can do more informed analysis and make better decisions.  To make
them fit with inline text, sparklines are generally small (100px x 30px)
and dispense with axis labels and units.

  % sudo runhaskell Setup.lhs install


You may encounter problems building the documentation if you're using
a version of haddock before version


Joe Gregorio's Python implementation of Sparklines served as an inspiration
for doing a Haskell version.  He's done some good work, make sure to check
