how to print bar chart in chrome browser console

This post doesn't really have anything valuable to contribute, just some cool console trick.

Have you ever wanted to plot out a chart, very quickly ? Did you ever had an urge to visualise a bunch of numbers without having to use a charting api or copy pasting the data in a spreadsheet ? If you did then you might even learn something today :)

Here is a simple , yet neat way to plot out bunch of numbers in chrome console as a horizontal bar chart.

for(i = 5;i<20;i++){console.log(`%c ${Array(Math.round(i*2)).join('█')}`, 'color: crimson');}


Hope you like it as much as I do as well :)
