It's very useful while making charts in your Project

I use this to give some information to the user visually beautiful and understandable.

Pros

It has a lot of types of charts with which you can show any kind of analytics or information beautifully.

Cons

It took me a lot of time to figure out and calculate the axis values. I had issues with giving them integer values while it takes only strings.

Highcharts for

Overall, I'd give Highcharts a big thumbs up, their react integration makes it a breeze. It's all dynamic and the charts are indeed quite informative.

Pros

The best part about this software was the ease of using it. I thoroughly enjoyed how well documented their technical documentation site is. I am a front-end engineer and the fact that you can make interactive charts so easily made it a breeze. I have used the version for ReactJS and as long as you follow their documentation, it is pretty easy to create charts and even share them.

Cons

I liked it for creating basic charts, but when I tried creating complex charts, it took me a while. I was trying to create a very customized example for my company's POC, and that took me a lot of understanding. At some points, it got a little frustrating as well. There are still a lot of open issues in their github issues page. Be sure to check if they offer exactly what you are trying to do.

Highcharts (Everviz)

It was fairly easy to get started, but it was challenging for me to create more complex charts. I had trouble importing my data, so I just entered it manually. I think if they offered more templates to choose from it would be easier for users to create their project.

Pros

I was able to create dynamic charts to embed in html pages. I believe the charts are accessible, so it's much more preferable to use Highcharts to represent a chart, rather than simply embedding a static image (such as a jpeg or png file). I also like the overall look of how the chart appears in the page. You can scroll over points and have the coordinates appear. Very cool!

Cons

I was not able to create a certain kind of chart. Perhaps Highcharts doesn't have the flexibility to create any type of chart, or if they do, I just couldn't figure out how to do it. I wish they had more templates that I could use to start my project.
