Unreadable Tree charts - Cannot widen the canvas' size in Streamlit

Hi guys,

I’m trying to set up a tree chart via PyEcharts (https://gallery.pyecharts.org/#/Tree/tree_base)

All is working well except that I can’t seem to be able to expand the chart’s width. I’ve tried to tweak various size settings in the PyEcharts library but the canva size remains static.

Not sure if it’s to do with an underlying limitation in Streamlit or in PyEcharts. Ideally I would want the layout to be as wide as the right hand side chart below, as it would greatly improve the chart’s legibility.

Source to desired chart JFYI: https://echarts.apache.org/examples/en/editor.html?c=tree-basic.

Thanks,
Charly

Yeah, I think it’s more that the height of the canvas constrains things too much. By giving a bigger height st_echarts(opts, height=800) it layouts better. Showing in wide mode also widens the tree even more.

Thanks! You are the best Fanilo! :raised_hands:

I was actually using PyEcharts, yet it seems that Echarts may be a bit more flexible - e.g. in PyEcharts, I can’t seem to see options such as:

expandAndCollapse
animationDuration

Best,
