Prerequisite: Create and Write on an excel sheet
XlsxWriter is a Python library using which one can perform multiple operations on excel files like creating, writing, arithmetic operations and plotting graphs. Let’s see how to plot different types of pie charts using realtime data.
Charts are composed of at least one series of one or more data points. Series themselves are comprised of references to cell ranges.
For plotting the charts on an excel sheet, firstly, create chart object of specific chart type( i.e Pie chart etc.). After creating chart objects, insert data in it and lastly, add that chart object in the sheet object.
Code #1 : Plot the simple Pie Chart.
For plotting the simple Pie chart on an excel sheet, use
add_chart() method with type ‘pie’ keyword argument of a workbook object.
Code #2: Plot a Pie chart with user defined segment colours.
For plotting the pie chart with user defined segment colours on an excel sheet, use
add_series() method with points keyword argument of a chart object.
Code #3: Plot a Pie chart with rotation of the segments.
For plotting a pie chart with rotation of the segments on an excel sheet, use set_rotation() method with definite angle argument of the chart object.
