Installation of Graph plugin in the redmine application.

Added by Shreenarayan Soman over 8 years ago

Hi All,
Recently I installed redmine application on my local system.I wanted to install the graph plugin in the Redmine as shown in the plugin section of redmine site.
I followed the steps mentioned in the Graph plugin section of redmine. The plugin gets installed but could not find the way on how to enable the plugin ,so that my redmine shows Graph.Also I could view the plugin installed in my Administration/plugin section.

I tried the various plugin below for adding graph feature to my redmine application but could not enable the plugin.Please any one can help me with this problem or any reference on installing the mentioned plugin and configuring it.

1) Redmine Charts + Open Flash chart - This gives i18n error , so had to comment out this line 'require i18n' used in the Redmine Graphs,the plugin gets installed successfully but could not configure it to view graphs.

2) Redmine Graphs - This plugin gets installed but could not configure it to show the graphs.
- http://github.com/bradbeattie/redmine-graphs-plugin/commit/2220eb279c4ea21c610dc479a75695d0ecec2ecd

Also is there any thingh else that need to be configured apart from installation to view the graph in the redmine?
Please help me out with this problem.
Thank you
Narayan.

Note that the graphs plugin, much like the repository charts in Redmine itself, uses SVG. If you're trying to view the graphs in IE, it won't display (as IE has no native support for SVG).

If we are talking about the same plug-in, it will be on the issues list on the right hand column under Graphs.

I still cant view the Graphs link on the above said page.I have currently installed only one plugin i.e Redmine_graphs by Brad Beattie.I could see the graph under Administration/plugin screen.I had pasted the redmine_graphs dir to my vendor/plugin dir of my project and restarted the server but no result.
Also I have attached the screenshot of the plugin installation page and Issues list page where the Graph needs to be displayed.
Awating for your reply.
Thank you

I also tried the other plugin which is based on this url reference
http://github.com/mszczytowski/redmine_charts/tree/master
but no success for graph viewing.
Any walk thorough on how to install and configure the above plugin to view graphs would be appreciated.
Thank you

No idea. Pull the latest trunk from Redmine and the latest commit for the plugin. If that doesn't work, there's something else wrong with your setup.

As per the above reply I checked out fresh copy of the redmine 0.8 stable version and installed the Redmine graph plugin from this url
http://github.com/bradbeattie/redmine-graphs-plugin/com/2220eb279c4ea21c610dc479a75695d0ecec2ecd
The Graph link got displayed on the right hand side of the Issuses page, but on clicking that the page fails. The error can be viewed in the attached screen shot also there is an attached screenshot of the plugin installed .A reply on this would be appreciated.
Thank you
