Spark data needs to be formatted as comma-separated values, with curly brackets at both ends of the set, e.g., {30,60,90}. You can also have numbers at the beginning and end of the set, which are useful for providing the start and end points, e.g., 123{30,60,90}456 – Spark has numerals built in.

“Can charts be shown in text without using code?”

Data can be hard to grasp – visualising it can make comprehension faster. Sparklines (tiny charts in text) are a useful tool but creating them for the web has always required code. Removing the need for code makes it more accessible. If you can use type, you can use Spark.

AtF Spark is a font that allows for the combination of text and visual data to show an idea and evidence in one headline. This builds on the principle of Sparklines defined by Edward Tufte and makes them easier to use. Sparklines are currently available as plugins or javascript elements. By installing the Spark font you can use them immediately without the need for custom code.

To use Spark all you need is a font file, some text, and an application that can make use of OpenType Contextual Alternates, e.g., a new-ish web browser, Microsoft Word, Adobe Illustrator. Spark data needs to be formatted as comma-separated values, with curly brackets at both ends of the set, e.g. via Pocket

Inspired by Tufte’s sparklines, @AftertheFloodco's typeface turns typed numerals into inline data visualizations. https://t.co/ktf5yxVuRM

Wait a second… [sparklines](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparkline) generated from a font! Mind blown! 🤓 Tools & Toys has a good [article on this with examples](http://toolsandtoys.net/atf-spark-typeface/).

This is incredibly slick: a font that uses fancy features of the OTF format to allow you to create in-line sparklines. I'll be on the lookout for use cases.

Neat trick using a font to render a sparkline.
