Date: Jan­uary 1, 2017 2:32:50 PM CET
An­dreas Lo­ef­fler sub­mit­ted an up­date to the sparklines pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.7 Li­cense type: lppl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Draw­ing sparklines: in­tense, sim­ple, word­like graph­ics An­nounce­ment text:
This pack­age is used to plot the real data, some­times sparks might be out­side the rect­an­gle (0,0) -- (1,1). This pack­age in­cludes the op­tion of ei­ther plot­ting them OR clip­ping the plot. There­fore now we have two en­vi­ron­ments: sparkline and sparkline*, with the lat­ter set­ting the pgf clip­ping path. The clip­ping path should be slightly larger than the (0,0) -- (1,1) rect­an­gle to ac­co­mo­date dots at the start and the end.
The pack­age's Cat­a­logue en­try can be viewed at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/sparklines The pack­age's files them­selves can be in­spected at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/graph­ics/sparklines

sparklines – Draw­ing sparklines: in­tense, sim­ple, word­like graph­ics

Sparklines are in­tense, sim­ple, word­like graph­ics (so named by Ed­ward Tufte). In lieu of a more de­tailed in­tro­duc­tion, Pro­fes­sor Tufte's site has an early re­lease of a chap­ter on sparklines. A PHP im­ple­men­ta­tion may be found at SourceForge.

A sparkline can be added us­ing the sparkline en­vi­ron­ment. Also, you can add sparkling rect­an­gles for the me­dian and spe­cial sparkling dots in red or blue. The pack­age re­quires pdf; sparklines can­not ap­pear in a dvi file. The sparklines pack­age uses pgf, and does not work with pictex.
