Chart.js or Google Charts

Just finished the Clementine.JS tutorial. About to start my Voting App for the Backend Projects.

Who used Chart.js and who used Google Charts? Any recommendation?


I used Chart.js and it was pretty easy to use. To be fair though, I haven’t looked into Google Charts, like at all, so your mileage may vary ;D You should maybe just look into the “Getting started”-ish sections of their respective websites and pick the one that seems easier to use to you. You can’t really go wrong either way.

I used chart.js, and I’m in total agreement with @kimkwanka. All you really have to do is add a canvas tag to the DOM and pass it in as an argument to the chart constructor, as well as an object that specifies the chart properties.


Go with Chart JS. I went with Google Charts first, and spent so much time fighting with it, (mostly CSS layout) that I gave up and switched to Chart Js. Not to mention that Chart JS looks slicker and 10 times easier to use.
