Hi

I am creating an app outside splunk web.
I am using splunk sdk for javascript to get datafrom splunk.
I want to create third party graph(d3 graph) using that data. Is there any document or example showing same.

I'd have a look at the docs.

Connecting To Splunk
Running Searches

Pay special attention if you have searches with greater than 50k results. You will need to paginate through the data.

There's nothing special when it comes to creating a D3 visualization with data coming from Splunk. The key is to write the query so it returns the data in the shape that the D3 visualization expects. You'll probably want to set the outputmode of the search to JSONROWS as most D3 visualizations expect JSON as input. The rest of your javascript code will be D3 specific once you've got your search results.
