Visualizations Terminus

Bar styling

The bars that appear at each terminus can be modified or hidden entirely. This gives us even more control over the presentation of our Terminus diagram.

Sample data

Let's import PlotAPI and load our sample data.

from plotapi import Terminus

links = [
    {"source":"England", "target":"Germany", "value": 1000},
    {"source":"England", "target":"France", "value": 3000},
    {"source":"England", "target":"Spain", "value": 5000},
    {"source":"England", "target":"Italy", "value": 4000},
    {"source":"England", "target":"Japan", "value": 800},
    {"source":"Ireland", "target":"Germany", "value": 3500},
    {"source":"Ireland", "target":"France", "value": 3750},
    {"source":"Ireland", "target":"Spain", "value": 1750},
    {"source":"Ireland", "target":"Italy", "value": 5000},
    {"source":"Ireland", "target":"Japan", "value": 400},


There are many opportunities to customise the Terminus bars.

  • show_bars, to hide or show the bars.
  • outer_bars, to place the bars inside or outside a terminus.
  • bar_width, to set the maximum width of the bars.
  • colored_target_bars, to enable or disable colored target bars. By default, they are all black.

Let's try a few combinations.

    links, height=400, 
    outer_bars=True, bar_width=150, colored_target_bars=True
Terminus(links, height=400, show_bars=False).show_png()
