Improved Line Graphs Come To Phoronix Results
Phoronix: Improved Line Graphs Come To Phoronix Results
Semi-frequently there's been requests to improve the line graphs that are shown for certain test results within Phoronix articles. Fortunately, thanks to the work of an independent contributor, there are improvements you can find within Phoronix Test Suite 5.2-Khanino that will affect future articles...
As a color blind fellow, could I suggest a feature? With the many different kinds of color blindness and the random collection of colors used in graphs, one thing that I think would help is the ability to either mouse over or click on a legend box/label and have the line associated with it highlighted in some way.
Alternately (and this seems harder to do), the ability to have a hover text associated with each line which displayed the legend for that line.
Either would go a long way to making the graphs useful for people with limited color differentiation/perception abilities.
As with earlier color improvements on Phoronix like today's line improvements, patches are welcome as I'm short on time to deal with things like that without corporate demand for such features.
