10 JavaScript Libraries For Interactive Graphs And Charts

It provides a simple way to produce common types of graphics in a principled, consistent and responsive way. The library currently supports line charts, scatterplots and histograms as well as features like rug plots and basic linear regression.



ECharts is a most impressive tool for data visualization: it’s fully open-source, it’s sophisticated-yet-flexible, and it keeps abreast of the era of ‘big data’! ECharts is a free, powerful charting and visualization library offering an easy way of adding intuitive, interactive, and highly customizable charts to your commercial products.

    Encourage you to correct the typo regarding “c3js” (d3js?)

    • Chloesays:

      c3js and d3js are different libraries 🙂

      • whateversays:

        Thanks, I was (am still) confused by this:
        > c3 is a D3-based reusable chart library

        I guess I have some research to do

  2. Chloesays:

    Surprised to see so many of the major players missing from this list! http://www.amcharts.com, http://www.highcharts.com, http://www.zingchart.com, just to name a few.

  3. PKsays:

    how can you for forget to mention this site http://www.fusioncharts.com/

  4. Andrey Khachaturovsays:

    In addition to the other suggestions, I guess AnyChart should be listed here, too: http://www.anychart.com. It is a global leader in interactive data visualization, with robust, flexible, cross-platform and cross-browser JavaScript (HTML5) libraries for charts and dashboards, stock (date/time) graphs, maps, and Gantt charts.
