Apexchart from csv file

i have used apexchart with builtin array data and it's very nice, but i need use CSV file for data (to start very simple with timestamp on X axis and temperature values on Y axis). But i'm unable to load data from script, code work if placed on web server, but not by itself or inside template node.
How to solve ? i'm not expert sw engineer, looking around web no example to use apex with external data file / array, consider the file could be large....

Any suggestion will be welcome.
temp_1.csv.log (648 Bytes)

In your script you are using $.ajax to GET temp_1.csv\ but are you serving that file from Node-RED (i.e. do you have http-in -> file-read -> http-response flow?

NOTE: You dont actually need to serve the file or request it - you could simply pass the data to the frontend via a node msg input to the ui-template node.

Read the built in help for the ui-template node. It tells you how to listen for messages using the scope object. then you can simply send the data in msg.payload directly to the template.
