Highcharts API is used for data visualization, it's very convenient to integrate with frontend frameworks like angular.
  • Easy configuration
  • Nice charts
  • Easy to customize
  • More charts can be added
  • Design can be improved more
  • Integration can be made more easier
It's very easy to set up and visualize the large amount of data in a very short time.

Highcharts is our "go to" solution when we are developing web sites or applications and need to display quantified data to our users. We use it because most of the defaults achieve our needs without extensive customization. At the same time, we've also used the advanced data-binding capabilities of Highcharts to build dynamic and data rich graphs for web applications.
  • Easy to get started.
  • Easy to do basic customizations.
  • Attractive-looking graphs.
  • While customization of colors and basic width/height of elements in simple, going beyond that becomes difficult.
Highcharts is well suited for standard graphs and charts in which you want to quickly visualize your data. It is also well suited for simple or light streaming of live data. It is a little less suited when you need to do advanced visualizations (transition graphics or animations) or have large amounts of data that need be visualized.

Highcharts is flying high

It was used in the data visualization portion of a sentiment analysis project for a government agency. Our research lab was contracted to conduct sentiment analysis on a recent government announcement, by collecting online citizen data on social media and public forums. After analyzing the data, I made used of Highcharts to develop the necessary charts (pie, bar, drill-down, etc) to help visualize the findings.
  • Easy ingestion of APIs and JSON.
  • Clean, easy to view charts.
  • Little dependencies.
  • Customizability is more restricted as compared to D3.js
  • More tweaks required to make it responsive.
  • Drill-down functions are more complicated to develop.
It is excellent when you are wanting to create clean, straight to the point, data visualizations. Pie charts, bar graphs, and the appropriate drill-downs are easy to develop and deploy. This helps a lot when needing to develop a data visualization solution for non-technical teams. However, the lack of customizability makes it difficult to create specialized visualizations.

It is used on our website and our app to visualize system metrics. We needed to display various metrics and data series together and it was a great choice. We found it fast, pure javascript, with good support and examples. There's a lot of documentation, and rendering is fast and gives us a consistent look and feel across all of our products.
  • Pure javascript.
  • Quick rendering.
  • Lots of examples.
  • It's relatively complex.
  • Data and configuration of the display would be better.
  • The learning curve is not negligible.
For simple, one chart, maybe a simpler product would suffice. If you need eye-candy charts, pure javascript, and total control of almost any aspect, this is the tool. It works great with react and react-native.

Just the developers utilize high charts for our data mining platform. This is used to give our users the ability to analyze their attendance, discipline, grades, and more to find patterns for at-risk students.
  • A wide selection of chart types.
  • Can handle large amounts of datasets.
  • Can customize look and feel to match the application.
  • Good community and documentation.
  • Customizations can be difficult sometimes when you need anything more than size and color.
Highcharts is well suited as a JavaScript-based charting library for front end web-based applications. Not for someone who doesn't know basic programming.
