Terminal graphs.

Our review

What we like

Easily take input from stdin or a specified file then plot a graph in the terminal. Supports bar, line, scatter, box plots, histograms and density plots. Minimal setup needed - assumes first column is x axis and second column is y axis, but this is configurable. Can handle real-time data. Uses default terminal colors. Open source.

What we don't like

Does not support time series. No static binary - installed via Ruby gem.
