Wanna see some cool Chart.js examples? Boy, we have a few of those. But first, let’s start with the basics.
Graphs and charts provide a quick, simple visual display of statistics, making the information easy to translate and compare. A well-presented graph or chart can make your website more appealing.
Placing a good chart on your website can be achieved by using Chart.js. This is a library of data visualization scripts.
Producing graphs and data visualization may be a first for you. You may have also attempted it and discovered how challenging it is to do correctly.
Here is a list of Chart.js examples to paste into your projects.
Within Chart.js, there are a variety of functional visual displays including bar charts, pie charts, line charts, and more.
The charts offer fine-tuning and customization options that enable you to translate data sets into visually impressive charts.
More about Chart.js
It is available on GitHub, so it is an open-source, community maintained library.
There are also options for using the charts in frontend frameworks such as React, Vue, and Angular.
All charts in the library are responsive, meaning they can be displayed in different sized windows. They scale perfectly on small mobile screens and larger device displays alike.
Along with responsiveness, the charts offer good rendering performance across all modern browsers. This means no matter how a viewer displays your charts, they will be quickly available and clearly visible.
Available Chart.js examples include:
- Bar Charts – Options include Vertical, Horizontal, Multi-Axis, Stacked, and Stacked-Groups.
- Line Charts – Options include Basic, Multi-Axis, Stepped, and Interpolation. Also comes with options for different line styles, point styles, and point sizes for complete customization.
- Radar Charts
- Pie Charts
- Doughnut Charts
- Bubble Charts
- Scatter Charts
- Polar Area Charts
Charts of multiple types can be combined to produce an overlay of the information in different formats.
Various modifications to the chart style can also be found in the library including scale, legend, and tooltip options. This allows you to customize data visualization to suit the needs of the project and your personal preferences.
