Start drawing sparklines in Python using the Python Imaging Library

Sparklines are intense, simple word-sized graphics, they are useful for presenting a large volume of information in a small space using a context sensitive manner.

Joe Gregorio, the President of BitWorking, Inc. started drawing sparklines in Python using the Python Imaging Library. It is easy to get started with a basic template and then modify the code.

You can start right away by dynamically creating a sparkline using the Sparkline Generator Web Application.

To specify how each sparkline will appear you can pass it in the data via query parameters. Sparkline code only takes one parameter, a list of data with values between 0 and 100.
