I have a set of number data in #orgmode 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?

#emacs #graph #graphics #data #infochart


@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
