New Interactive Charting Library in Pure Javascript

Posted · Category: CC License, Charts

Highcharts JS is a charting library written in pure JavaScript, offering an easy way of adding interactive charts to your web site or web application. Highcharts JS currently supports line, spline, area, areaspline, column, bar, pie and scatter chart types.

It works in all modern browsers including the iPhone and Internet Explorer from version 6. Setting the Highcharts configuration options requires no special programming skills. The options are given in a JavaScript object notation structure, which is basically a set of keys and values connected by colons, separated by commas and grouped by curly brackets.

On hovering the chart, Highcharts JS can display a tooltip text with information on each point and series. By zooming in on a chart you can examine an especially interesting part of the data more closely. Zooming can be in the X or Y dimension, or both.

  • greta, thank you.

  • check

    Completely love this, but can’t use it as it is commercial and not open source.

    We currently use OFC which is severely limited. ANyone know of a decent open source option?

  • Take a look at jqPlot (http://www.jqplot.com/) for a free and open source JS charting project.

    It looks really good but the graphs don’t print. :-(

  • Thanks for sharing this, anyone have found a printable version?
