Interactive Charts & Graphs with Chart.js

Chart.js helps you to present your data into 7 different types of charts. With this library, you can create line chartsbar chartsradar chartspolar chartspie, and doughnut charts.

Chart.js displays charts and graphs using the HTML5 canvas element and is supported in all modern browsers. Chart.js is fully responsive, scaling to the size of your visitors’ screens. It also calculates the optimal scale granularity for the size of the chart or graph.

By using the canvas element, charts and graphs created with Chart.js are animated and highly customizable. Chart.js also gives your users the capability of interacting with the charts and graphs. It provides support canvas tool tips on a user’s hover/touch of part of the graph, instead of simply generating a static image.

The chart.js library does not depend on any other libraries and is very lightweight. The library in total (6 core charts) are only 11.01 kb when compressed. It is modular – its parts can be used and implemented independently – and the code for each of the chart types can be split up. This enables you to load only the code for the chart types you need for your project. Chart.js is available via GitHub.
