@Phil: Thnx for the effort. I guess you like thick lines
But to be serious: I regard the grey zones in the chart I gave as an example not just grey zones like that. It may not be standard, but it is a well respected way to represent statistics in a graph and I will not use that technique if I don't have statistics. I don't think it adds something. As I may add statistics in future and want to be consistent over all graphing, I will save that for the real statistics. For me that is end of discussion.
But I agree with you 1) the colouring of the lines is not so very good (because of the brown line which interferes too strongly with the black as you noticed correctly) and 2) if you already have many series you get a kind of tangled skein (i found a new word
) if all series are presented and you have to switch them off before you can make sense of the graph.
So I did the following:
1) I changed the colouring of the series (normal remains black). In the next release you will see: "['crimson', 'darkcyan', 'cyan', 'blue', 'green', 'yellow', 'red', 'blueviolet', 'chartreuse', 'coral', 'cornflowerblue', 'darkblue', 'darkgreen']". If you wish you can start trying out in the editor and tell me what you like/dislike. I do not really have a preference but just looking for good separation of the series. I may even think about taking this as a parameter so the user can define it's own colours. That will effectively put an end to that discussion
I may add these colours to the Daily Rain graph as well.
2) To prevent the initial entanglement, I created an ini-parameter which governs the number of series which show up at the drawing of the graph. The additional series you want to see you have to activate yourself. Default is 2, a large number shows all. Normal always shows.
The moving average in the Daily Rain graph is indeed a bit 'steppy'. Yet I defined it as a spline. Point is, that a smoothed line is drawn between points and there are so many points in this graph that the smoothing disappears and becomes useless. The 'steppyness' is a consequence of the algorithm. Can't change that I guess, maybe scaling will help. I will look into that.
[edit :] check out the image. I enlarged the scale of the moving average and thickened the line : 2pts. You loose something but gain something else. I don't think I will do this btw
