It must contain the following input variables:
data: Union[str, DataFrame, List[Dict]]
x: List[str]

menu_path: str
order: int
Accepts the following input variables as optional:
title: Optional[str]
subtitle: Optional[str]
x_axis_name: Optional[str]
y_axis_name: Optional[str]
filters: Optional[List[str]]
rows_size: Optional[int]

Examples

1. Default configuration

data_ = [
{'Name': 'd', 'y': 6, 'z': 3},
{'Name': 'c', 'y': 7, 'z': 1},
{'Name': 'b', 'y': 3, 'z': 5},
{'Name': 'a', 'y': 5, 'z': 6},
]
shimoku.plt.horizontal_barchart(
data=data_,
x='Name', y=['y', 'z'],
menu_path='test/horizontal-bar-1',
order=0,
rows_size=2, cols_size=12,
)
The result is:

data_ = [
{'Count': 'Ph 1', 'Hours': 6, 'People': 3},
{'Count': 'Ph 2', 'Hours': 7, 'People': 1},
{'Count': 'Ph 3', 'Hours': 3, 'People': 5},
{'Count': 'Ph 4', 'Hours': 5, 'People': 6},
]
shimoku.plt.horizontal_barchart(
data=data_,
x='Count', y=['Hours', 'People'],
menu_path='test/horizontal-bar-2',
order=0,
rows_size=2, cols_size=10,
padding='0,0,0,1',
title='Working Hours and Resources',
subtitle='Resources = Hours x People'
)
The result obtained is:
The horizontal bar chart is fully customized, note the space before the component using padding='0,0,0,1' and size using cols_size=10.
