Nowadays, almost every application we create requires or uses data to improve the features provided to users, and sometimes, the most amazing thing we can offer to the user is the data itself especially when it is represented in an aesthetically pleasing way. However, table and number charts are always tiring and exhausting to interpret, and building them by hand is time-consuming and just plain silly.
Here comes Data Visualization to our rescue, it can be both an art as well as science and there's an infinite number of freely available libraries on the internet, and finding the right one can be tough.
To help you get started and easily add beautiful data visualization to your application, we’ve put together a list of great, easy-to-use chart libraries that exemplify the perfect balance of these elements without being too clumsy or difficult.
Now that we have a canvas we can use, we need to include Chart.js on our page.
<script class="lazy" data-src="https://firstname.lastname@example.org"></script>
the learning curve is so simple with Chart.js, the different animation options are one of its best features and the number of ways available to any developer to implement the requirement is amazing, plus its compatibility for various screen size and media quires is great.
D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG, and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation.
To link directly to the latest release, copy this snippet:
<script class="lazy" data-src="https://d3js.org/d3.v6.min.js"></script>
<script class="lazy" data-src="https://code.highcharts.com/highcharts.js"></script>
Highcharts API is really flexible based on well-designed fully customizable settings which can tweak your chart's nitty-gritty details. It also supports responsive design, which means you can define screen size-specific configurations and it will take care of how it will look on different devices. It can be integrated with Angular thanks to its official highcharts-angular wrapper.
To use it, include the downloaded scripts before the end of the </head> tag in your HTML document:
<script class="lazy" data-src="plotly-latest.min.js"></script>
It just makes sense, looks great, and is a lot of fun to work with, and you have also all features available as Open Source.
Chartist.Js is a charting library. It provides a simple configuration override mechanism based on media queries, simple responsive charts.
<head> <link rel="stylesheet" href="bower_components/chartist/dist/chartist.min.css"> </head> <body> <!-- Site content goes here !--> <script class="lazy" data-src="bower_components/chartist/dist/chartist.min.js"></script> </body>
This library is very light and very easy to setup. It doesn't have any other dependencies which make it extremely configurable and easy to use. Its open-source and documentation is very readable and clear for anyone to start customizing it. On top of it, it makes use of SVG, making the chart objects as handy as DOM objects. You can style it in your manner using the DOM hooks. It provides the basic charts.
