In d3.js, you can remove extra spaces between two ticks in a D3 axis by adjusting the tick padding.


Here's how you can do it:

  1. Find the code where you define the axis in your D3 script. Look for the part where you set the tick values and tick padding.
  2. Add the tickPadding attribute to the axis definition and set it to a smaller value to reduce the spacing between ticks. For example, you can set tickPadding to 5 or any other suitable value.


Here's an example code snippet showing how to set the tick padding:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
// Define the x-axis
var xScale = d3.scaleLinear()
  .domain([0, 100])
  .range([0, width]);

var xAxis = d3.axisBottom(xScale)
  .tickPadding(5);

// Append the axis to the SVG
svg.append("g")
  .attr("class", "x axis")
  .attr("transform", "translate(0," + height + ")")
  .call(xAxis);


By adjusting the tickPadding value, you can control the spacing between ticks on your D3 axis.
