Overall Satisfaction with Highcharts

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.
Highcharts is almost 10 times more popular on real websites, so we decided to go safe here. The community was most important to us.
It's pure javascript based, so can connect to practically any javascript enabled framework or software.
I've not really used the collaboration features, but the web is filled with examples of people doing exactly that, so sharing seems strong here. I gave it an 8, since I didn't personally experience it.
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.
