[Overview] of building the stats and graphs section on the homepage

Our plan is for the stats section to open up with more details, and links to the sources so people visiting can follow our Movement on other platforms, and to add evidence to support our figures.

That area needs to be designed by the @UXers, @UI-Design and @StatsAreBeautiful Team. until that’s complete we will use a simple button linking to this thread, where the stats and sources are displayed in a less exciting way.

Hello @scottly426, looking at this, it seems we are just doing a link this thread (Add 'More Stats' button under the 'Stats' and above the 'Projects' section)

Since I can do UI/UX designs, I will schedule a meeting with @AndyatFocallocal so I could design the UI for you to work on :slight_smile:

Hello @Marvelxy !

That is wonderful! I had a couple tings come up today, so I won’t be able to look at the code until later. I will try to get on it as soon as possible but will still be waiting for your confirmation. Happy coding!



Updating the task based on todays meeting:

Breaking the task into 3 stages.

    1. just numbers and links pulled directly from i18n and entered manually by Andy monthly (you’ll need to read the i18n post in the documentation section for this)
    1. numbers and links pulled in live via API
    1. graphs added underneath the stats in each modal window and an overall graph underneath the stats section and above the projects section.

A small toggle included at the top of the stats section allowing users to switch between:

  • Daily ? (is it useful?)
  • Weekly (default)
  • Monthly
  • Yearly

When clicked some links will open a model window, others do not have more levels of data and will open the linked site directly.


  1. Graphs are underneath the links (and numbers) in the modal window
  2. An overall growth graph lives under the data section and above the Projects section to give a nice visual for those who don’t enjoy numbers.
    All graphs change if the toggle on the homepage is set to a different time span.
  • I suggest seeking help from reddit data is beautiful as those guys live for graphs and presenting data well. If we tell them we’re an open source community working on community action on humanitarian causes and want to present a beautiful graph and data to show visitors to the the platform the work we’re doing, then i expect some people there will help us with designs and programs we can use.

Users should be able to toggle the stats to show weekly, monthly and yearly data. This will also edit the graphs.
