Hi everyone,

My name is Madhura Jayaratne and I am an undergraduate from the University
of Moratuwa Sri Lanka. I have few years of experience in using php and mySql
and was a user of phpMyAdmin for few years.

When I was going through the GSoC idea list I noticed the project idea on
charts and was interested as I have engaged in developing a general charting
framework during my internship. I went through the requested feature list
and had a look at the area of the codebase where I have to do the

I have few ideas to add in this regard. My feeling is that, before adding
charts to the runtime information tab we should put in place a framework
that would allow us to extend charting facilitates wherever we want to have
it in phpMyAdmin.

 What I'm proposing is a general data structure that would facilitate
multiple types of charts (we can learn a lot from Google Visualization API
in this regard), and a set of interfaces that would facilitate different
implementation for different chart rendering engines( we can even go for
something other than CD2, if we feel like that sometimes down the line)

Though this would take few weeks of extra time, I feel that this allows a
lot of extensibility. When we have this framework in place we can do the
implementation as for the requirement we have now and we can go on to add
different charts to phpMyAdimn in the future as the requirement arises.

Would love to hear your opinion about this

Thanx in advance

Madhura Jayaratne
