Build Status Coverage Status

Implements a legend for Chartist charts.



$ npm install chartist-plugin-legend --save

As styles are very different with each project, no CSS is included. You can copy paste this to use as base:

.ct-legend {
    position: relative;
    z-index: 10;

    li {
        position: relative;
        padding-left: 23px;
        margin-bottom: 3px;

    li:before {
        width: 12px;
        height: 12px;
        position: absolute;
        left: 0;
        content: '';
        border: 3px solid transparent;
        border-radius: 2px;

    li.inactive:before {
        background: transparent;

    &.ct-legend-inside {
        position: absolute;
        top: 0;
        right: 0;

    @for $i from 0 to length($ct-series-colors) {
        .ct-series-#{$i}:before {
            background-color: nth($ct-series-colors, $i + 1);
            border-color: nth($ct-series-colors, $i + 1);


In an example chart:


new Chartist.Bar('.ct-chart', data, {
        stackBars: true,
        plugins: [
classNameAdds a class to the ul element.string''

classNamesAccepts a array of strings as long as the chart's series, those will be added as classes to the li elements.mixedfalse
removeAllAllow all series to be removed at once.boolfalse
positionSets the position of the legend element. top, bottom or any DOM2 Element are currently accepted. If a DOM Element is given, the legend will be appended as it's last child.`'top''bottom'
