OI Lume Viz

At Open Innovations, we've started using the Lume Static Site Generator to build data microsites for people. This gives us the benefits of a static HTML site, with associated manageability, efficiency, and maintainability benefits, whilst giving us a framework for extending.

To support some of the more complex visualisations we undertake, we've encapsulated a number of our charting libraries in this. With each one we aim to keep bandwidth use down, only use limited front-end Javascript to add some interactivity, and keep visualisations as accessible as possible.

Using the library

To use this in your Lume project, include the following in your Lume _config.js or _config.ts file. WARNING! This is strictly a pre-release version, and interfaces are very likely to change.

import oiLumeViz from "";

  assetPath: 'assets/oi',
  componentNamespace: 'oi',

You can provide the following options:

  • assetPath path to locate the Javascript assets that are loaded (default: /assets)
  • componentNamespace namespace where the charts are accessible e.g. comp.oi.dashboard() (default: oi)

You can also set site-wide colours, fonts, and map tile layers.

Visualisation types

We have a variety of visualisation types available:


Run a test with the following command. Replace the file path with the tests you want to run. If you provide a directory path and Deno will find any test files in the directory and it's sub-directories.

deno test --unstable --allow-read --no-check components/chart/bar.test.ts

To make Deno continually run these tests, add the --watch flag. This will then run each time the input files change.

deno test --unstable --allow-read --no-check --watch components/chart/bar.test.ts
