Sankey chart in node-red

Dear All,

Hope you are doing well :slight_smile:
Anybody have reference for creating Sankey chart in node-red ?
or maybe there are some tutorial for different type of chart visualization in node-red.

Thank you

Advanced charts can be made using external charting libraries, for Sankey may be the Plotly is reasonable choice. Sankey Diagrams | JavaScript | Plotly

Here's the basics how it can be done using the ui_template node.

It will probably be possible using node-red-node-ui-vega (node) - Node-RED - Vega supports lots of different graph types.

Unfortunately I can't give you a working example.

Although this example shows a Sankey graph generated in vega - so you may be able to piece together what's needed... Sankey diagram with vega.js -

Thank you @knolleary and @hotNipi for your reference, I will explore and test it first.

Will be back after get result.

Appreciate your support
