Chart.js or Google Charts

Chart.js or Google Charts


Just finished the Clementine.JS tutorial. About to start my Voting App for the Backend Projects.

Who used Chart.js and who used Google Charts? Any recommendation?



I used Chart.js and it was pretty easy to use. To be fair though, I haven’t looked into Google Charts, like at all, so your mileage may vary ;D You should maybe just look into the “Getting started”-ish sections of their respective websites and pick the one that seems easier to use to you. You can’t really go wrong either way.


I used chart.js, and I’m in total agreement with @kimkwanka. All you really have to do is add a canvas tag to the DOM and pass it in as an argument to the chart constructor, as well as an object that specifies the chart properties.


Go with Chart JS. I went with Google Charts first, and spent so much time fighting with it, (mostly CSS layout) that I gave up and switched to Chart Js. Not to mention that Chart JS looks slicker and 10 times easier to use.
