TL;DR

A nice terminal tool: plot.

Recently I discovered a nice tool to plot sequences of data… on the terminal. It’s called plot.

Here’s a run of the example - the traffic that is shown in the plot is the result of a few HTTP requests:

If the animation above is not smooth, it’s probably something to do with the recording because the “original” run was quite smooth indeed.

Just for fun, I did a static build of the code using the musl libc, you can find it in the local copy here.

Happy plotting!
