Automatic Gantt Chart from Obsidian Tasks & Dataview

You’re most welcome, and credit should rather go to @LynnXie00 who did all the hard part at the top of this thread :slight_smile:

As for showDone, you guessed it, it’s a property in my note, that is linked to a switch in the note’s body thanks to the Meta-Bind plugin.

Hi, everyone and thank you for your effort. I tried to follow your guidelines, but unfortunately, it doesn’t work for me.

Below performed steps:

  • Installed CustomJS. Dataview and templater already installed
  • Made a Scripts Folder and placed dailyGantt.js inside. Configured CustomJS to look into that folder to find scripts
  • In my Daily note i placed the dataviewjs query to invoke the script

return this:

Is that a file you downloaded, or did you copy/paste the code from this thread into dailyGantt.js?

The error seems to be some kind of syntax error. My first guess would be if you copy/pasted but ended up with smart quotes instead of regular quotes, or something similar.

I think it would be helpful to see the code in that file. The best thing to do would be to copy/paste it here between backticks.

```
Your dailyGantt.js code
```

Hi @rigmarole thank you for your answer. Probably my bad, having copied/pasted the code from this thread directly into the file.

Below the script:

class dailyGantt{

    extractDate(emoji, taskText) {
        const start = taskText.indexOf(emoji);
         if (start < 0) {
            return "";
            }
            const match = taskText.slice(start + 1).match(/([12]\d{3}-(0[1-9]|1[0-2])-(0[1-9]|[12]\d|3[01]))(\s|$)/);
            return match ? match[0] : "";
        }
        
    textParser(taskText, noteCreationDate) {
        const emojis = ["📅", "⏳", "🛫", "➕", "✅", "⏫", "🔼", "🔽"];

}

As you noticed the error seems to be some kind of syntax error, according to attached preview.

Thanks a lot

So I think (but I’m not familiar with what this code is doing) that you didn’t put it inside code blocks and say what the language is:

```dataviewjs

The code goes here

```

If you copy the triple backticks here, the forum doesn’t show them, and so people copying the code miss that part. I’m showing them by putting them surrounded by 4 backticks. And I’ll show that by using 5 backticks.

```dataviewjs

I am close to fix the problem, i pasted the script into Visual studio code saved as .js file and dropped into my vault, now it works.

Regarding the dataview code to trigger Mermaid inside my Daily note:

```dataviewjs
let today = "{{date:YYYY-MM-DD}}";
let tomorrow = "{{date+1d:YYYY-MM-DD}}";
let showDone = dv.current().showDone;
function checkAndExecuteGantt() {
    const { dailyGantt } = customJS || {};
    if (dailyGantt && dailyGantt.drawGantt) {
        let parsedToday = new Date(today);
        if (parsedToday.getDay() != 0) {
            dailyGantt.drawGantt(dv, today, tomorrow, moment, showDone);
        }
    } else {
        setTimeout(checkAndExecuteGantt, 500);
    }
}
checkAndExecuteGantt();
```

I receive this error

Modifying the dates in the beginning of the short script seems to work:

let today = "2024-01-30";
let tomorrow = "2024-01-31";

I am still a newbie and i am trying to deepen the problem, any suggestion appreciated

I have update, according to my needs, the two code blocks as shown below, now it works:

I hope it can be of help to others too

Need help because your script doesn’t work for the selected dates. For duration it works well. I’m including a screenshot.

axis_format:: %d-%m

```dataviewjs
function textParser(taskText){//input text,return object

let du= taskText.indexOf("⏱️")
let durText = "";
if (du>0){
let i=taskText.slice(du).search(/\d+(d|w|m)/);
	durText=taskText.substr(du+i, 3)

}

So sorry for the delay, I really need to log in more, lol.

Not entierly sure why that is happinging. But it works fine on my current version of the script.

the update take more inputs from feilds on the page with the gannt chart to allow for adjsuting the Axis ticks based on the format descrbed here.

in the example below, “tick amount” holds the number and “tickScale” holds the day/week/month parts of the pattern Described in the link. along the way i must have halso fixed whatever was causing your issue

I hope this helps!


Gannt config
axis_format:: %m-%d-%y
axis tick
tickAmount:: 6
tickScale:: month

Hello there.
I tried to follow along, since I would also really like to have a GANTT for my tasks. However, I seem to be incapable.
I installed CustomJS and Dataview. But I only get the same red line as @Brains4Us did on Jan 21.
Maybe at some point somebody can provide a short tutorial?
regards

I look forward to giving this a shot. Thank you for this. :slight_smile:
