## Examples

# 1. converting AirPassengers to a tidy data frame
airpassengers <- data.frame(
passengers = as.matrix(AirPassengers),
date= zoo::as.Date(time(AirPassengers))
)

# 2. plotting the area chart
areaChart(
data = airpassengers,
x = "date",
y = "passengers",
fill = "purple",
bgcol = "white"
)
