  • Radar

Data format


In Markdown, each line is a series of data, preceded by the minus character. Each series has a name and a set of values, separated by the colon character. Each value is separated by a comma.


- a: 10, 30, 20
- b: 12, 15, 40
- c: 39, 13, 55
- d: 2, 99, 41
- e: 11, 48, 31
- f: 41, 45, 33


You can also use the CSV format for your data, making it easy to copy and paste your data from Excel or Google Spreadsheets. The first line should contain the labels and the other lines should contain the data. Accepted separators are tabulations, commas, semicolons, and vertical bars.


a, b, c
1, 3, 12
33, 3, 55
9, 22, 19


Custom colors

You can add custom colors next to your column titles:

- Orange{{#110011}}: 20, 30, 40
- Apple{{#232323}}: 20, 50, 10

Or in CSV:
