ScottPlot 4 CI Discord

ScottPlot is a free and open-source plotting library for .NET that makes it easy to interactively display large datasets. The ScottPlot Cookbook demonstrates how to create line plots, bar charts, pie graphs, scatter plots, and more with just a few lines of code.

Windows Forms Quickstart

Windows Forms: Use NuGet to install ScottPlot.WinForms, drag/drop a FormsPlot onto your form, then add the following to your start-up sequence:

double[] xs = new double[] {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};
double[] ys = new double[] {1, 4, 9, 16, 25};
formsPlot1.Plot.AddScatter(xs, ys);

Plot in the Cloud with ScottPlot

These images are generated by ScottPlot in the cloud. Every hour an Azure Function hits the GitHub API to get an updated list of stargazers, then uses ScottPlot to create a figure from this data and saves it to web-accessible blob storage. Since this automatically-generated plot is just a static image accessible by a URL, it can be displayed in places where JavaScript is not permitted (like in this readme file) to display dynamic data.
