The Most Complete List of JavaScript Charting Libraries

If you are looking for a JS chart library, it should be in this list (if not, please leave a comment). This is the most complete list of JS charting applications you’ll find on the Internet. To keep it updated, we frequently review it and add new information.

This is a long list of both free and commercial JavaScript chart products, in alphabetical order. You’ll not find full reviews of each JavaScript charting library here, as we keep each entry short and focused on main info points. Most products are either SVG-based, or they render charts on a HTML5 canvas element. Some SVG-based apps use D3 internally, or another graph engine.

Links to JavaScript chart libraries featured on appear in blue. More apps are frequently added to this list.
