Chartist.js is a simple responsive charting library built with SVG. There are hundreds of nice charting libraries already out there, but they are either:

  • not responsive
  • use the wrong technologies for illustration (canvas)
  • are not flexible enough while keeping the configuration simple
  • are not friendly to your own code
  • are not friendly to designers
  • have unnecessary dependencies to monolithic libraries
  • more annoying things

What is it made for?

Chartist's goal is to provide a simple, lightweight and non-intrusive library to responsive craft charts on your website. It's important to understand that one of the main intentions of Chartist.js is to rely on standards rather than providing a own solution to the problem which is is already solved by the standard. We need to leverage the power of the browsers today and say good bye to the idea of solving all problems ourselves.

Chartist works with inline-SVG and therefore leverages the power of the DOM to provide parts of its functionality. This also means that Chartist is not providing it's own event handling, labels, behaviors and anything else that can just be done with plain HTML, JavaScript and CSS. The single and only responsibility of Chartist is to help you drawing "Simple responsive Charts" using inline-SVG in the DOM, CSS to style and JavaScript to provide an API for configuring your charts.
