What would you like to do?


  • Initial evaluation: seems the most mature. Apparently, has bad documentation, and is hard to use without going to its source code.
    • undergoing big rewrite


  • Initial evaluation: its main goal is to offer a simple API to create charts


  • Initial evaluation: highly customizable charting API.
    • tooltip issues in firefox
    • almost no documentation
    • some drawing artefacts


  • Initial evaluation: "designed to be dynamic, fluid, and open to integrations and customization" seems to have a rather complex API though * - last commit 1 year ago
    • no pie chart


  • Initial evaluation: intends to generate data visualizations from a JSON document. Charts can be generated server-side. Has an online editor
    • no tooltips


  • Initial evaluation: based on other two open-source projects (rVega, and rHighCharts). Creates a layer of abstraction on top of other charting libraries (like NVD3, HighCharts, Rickshaw, Morris, Polycharts, or Leaflet) using the R language.


  • Initial evaluation: looks similar to NVD3 in its goal of providing an API that allows you to customize the different elements that compose a chart (axis, series, legends, ...)


    • Plot charts only


  • Six types of charts
  • Canvas based
  • Retina-display support
  • Supports IE8
