Panic status board burndown chart

Panic’s status board is a great app for displaying status boards, either permanently or during status meetings.

On all my software projects, there are a few key metrics and charts that I normally produce, and the burndown, or burnup chart is one of them.

Creating this chart is quite easy with a bit of JSON. You can simply update this file with your own real data, save this file to a dropbox as per the instructions on Panic’s site.

{
    "graph" :
    {
        "title" : "Burndown Chart",
        "type" : "line",
        "yAxis" :
        {
            "hide" : false,
        },

        "datasequences" : 
        [
            {
                "title" : "Expected",
                "color" : "blue",
                "total" : false,

                "datapoints" :
                [   
                    {"title" : "1/4/2013", "value" : 100 },
                    {"title" : "2/4/2013", "value" : 90 },
                    {"title" : "3/4/2013", "value" : 80 },
                    {"title" : "4/4/2013", "value" : 70 },
                    {"title" : "5/4/2013", "value" : 60 },
                    {"title" : "6/4/2013", "value" : 50 },
                    {"title" : "7/4/2013", "value" : 40 },
                    {"title" : "8/4/2013", "value" : 30 },
                    {"title" : "9/4/2013", "value" : 20 },
                    {"title" : "10/4/2013", "value" : 10 },
                    {"title" : "12/4/2013", "value" : 0 }
                ]
            },
            {
                "title" : "Actual",
                "color" : "green",
                "total" : true,

                "datapoints" :
                [   
                    {"title" : "1/4/2013", "value" : 100 },
                    {"title" : "2/4/2013", "value" : 97 },
                    {"title" : "3/4/2013", "value" : 90 },
                    {"title" : "4/4/2013", "value" : 73 },
                    {"title" : "5/4/2013", "value" : 54 },
                    {"title" : "6/4/2013", "value" : 35 },

                ]
            },

        ]

    }
}

Enjoy.
