Sometimes elevators to success exist, and they take you straight to beautiful design, omitting endless lines of tedious code.
Chart.js, an open-source project, was created to help designers with data visualization. It allows for creating 8 types of charts: bar, pie, line, bubble, area, scatter, and mixed, and is quite intuitive in use. Each of the charts can be animated and customized to fit your needs and liking. Minimalistic interface and limited options encourage clarity of ideas and eliminate distractions, but may not appeal to people, who need more design options to play with. Interestingly, Chart.js renders solely to canvas, which may be problematic for developers, who are obliged to include SVG support on their websites.
Chartist is Chart’s little brother, allowing for data visualization with the help of customizable, responsive charts. It is compatible with the majority of browsers and makes it possible to create Advanced CSS Animations and SVG Animations with SMIL. Chartist’s main superpowers are its simplicity and customizability: as it renders to SVG, it can be easily customized to fit your desired aesthetic and interactivity. On the other side, Chartist’s offer is more limited than Chart’s, so it is a great option for true minimalists, who want to visualize their data in a clear, pleasant manner, without additional design details.
