fireant is a a data analysis tool used for quickly building charts, tables, reports, and dashboards. It defines a schema for configuring metrics and dimensions which removes most of the leg work of writing queries and formatting charts. fireant even works great with Jupyter notebooks and in the Python shell providing quick and easy access to your data. Slicers are the core component of fireant. A Slicer is a configuration of two types of elements, metrics and dimensions, which represent what kinds of data exist and how the data can be organized. A metric is a type of data, a measurement such as clicks and a dimension is a range over which metrics can be extended or grouped by. Concretely, metrics represent the data in a chart or table and dimensions represent the rows and columns, axes, or categories.
