d3-measure-text

A JavaScript component to measure the the width and height of SVG text.

Why?

If you're creating a graph with SVG, it's especially nice to know the size of the axis labels' text so that you can position the graph appropriately.

Install

Node.js/Browserify

npm install --save d3-measure-text

Component

component install jprichardson/d3-measure-text

Bower

bower install d3-measure-text

Script

<script src="/path/to/d3-measure-text.js"></script>

Usage

d3MeasureText(text, [className])

var d3MeasureText = require('d3-measure-text')
d3MeasureText.d3 = d3 //<--- set d3 if it's not global.

var dim = d3MeasureText("Time (days)")
console.dir(dim) //{width: 33, height: 12}
