In order to configure a Rechart component you have to bring your data to the Configurator App because many options are data specifics.

There are two fundamental ways to bring your data to the configurator:

  • Copy from your App the JSON data and paste it to the Configurator data-source textarea
  • Broadcast the data from your App and inject it to the Configurator

The former is good enough for a quick configuration and small datasets that doesn’t require many iteration between the App and the Configurator.

The latter is better when you need to tweak your data transformation or the data is not small at all.

In this 5 minutes video I’m showing you how to get started with such integration:
