Have you looked in more detail in Quickchart.io pricing? There is a free tier called Community. But its not clear what does this means: “Limits - Rate limit enforced”

I haven’t looked into it now. I just know that it’s a fairly dynamic service that works well with Glide.

Maybe best to email them to find out?

Another win:

Client wanted to track baby weight. They fill out lbs and oz. Math column to convert into value. Relation to self > joinedText Columns > Template column to create the quickchart image.

Impressive glide + quickchart = :clap:

I love it. Thanks @Robert_Petitto

Hey @Robert_Petitto, Amazing idea.
Just wanted to check if the user wishes to upload data with Previous date than the date already there in sheet, in that case how can we adjust the graph to be show dates in sequence, any trick for that?

As long as you’re using the date they entered rather than the “current date time” it should order it automatically.

Has anyone figured out how to get the Word Cloud API to treat short phrases as individual words?

For example, I want to be able to send it something like text="Open Minded" "Happy" "Risk Taker" and have it return a word cloud with just 3 “words”. But it seems that it splits on white space so the above example returns 5 words.

I’ve tried all sorts of permutations…

  • text=Open-Minded Happy Risk-Taker (removes the hyphens and returns 5 words)
  • text=Open Minded;Happy;Risk Taker (ditto, with the semi-colons removed)

The only way I managed to get it to “work” was by using underscores, eg. text=Open_Minded Happy Risk_Taker. That “works”, but the underscores are left intact so the resultant chart looks a bit ugly.

I tried emailing their support, but after a week I’ve had no response :sob:

Try replacing the spaces with empty characters.

Close, but no cigar.
Seems like it removed the empty character and joined the two words. So open‎ minded became openminded.
But perhaps it’s just a matter of finding the “right” empty character to trick it… I’ll experiment a bit.

I also thought I could be a bit clever by examining the source, but couldn’t any reference to the word cloud API in there :unamused:

yep, no dice

Hey @Darren_Murphy just throwing this out there - what about some padding between the words?

BINGO!!

After much trial and error, I found that the Braille Pattern Blank (U+2800) symbol works when sent as an HTML escape sequence. (%E2%A0%80)

So… https://quickchart.io/wordcloud?text=Collaborative%20Humorous%20Efficient%20Open%E2%A0%80Minded

returns…

Thanks @Jeff_Hager, for once again pointing me in the right direction! :facepunch:

Update: This workaround is no longer necessary. See below.
