Squid helps you write Ruby code to draw graphs in PDF files.

The source code is available on GitHub and the documentation on RubyDoc.

Prawn is a great Ruby library to generate PDF files but lacks high-level components to draw graphs.

Squid adds a single method chart(data = {}, options = {}) to Prawn.

Provide the data to plot as a hash, with each key/value representing a series.

For instance, the following code generates the graph below:

data = {views: {2013 => 182, 2014 => 46, 2015 => 134}}
