๐Ÿ˜ Quickchart.io: the Cloudinary of Charts โ€”on the fly charts!

GAME CHANGER!

Stumbled upon this site todayโ€”a way to create on the fly charts using data from your Glide tables. Images render instantly and you can select one of 14 different charts, customize colors, styles etc all through URL parameters!

The video below shows my first attempt to create a chart from scratch and implement it in Glide. Took me less than 5 minutes.

End result:

We can do this with join component, get more data joining them and put it inside the chart url

You bet. Just used a Join column and the Quickchart โ€œwordcloudโ€ chart and got this!
