Create high-quality Web graphs in minutes with Plotr

Filed under
HowTos

Need to add professional-looking graphs to your Web site? Using Plotr, you can do this in no time and with minimum fuss.

Plotr is a lightweight charting framework that allows you to create bar, line, and pie charts using just a few lines of JavaScript code inside plain HTML files.

Grab the latest version of the Plotr archive and unpack it. Rename the resulting directory to, for example, plotr. Since Plotr requires the Prototype framework, you have to download it, too. Create a prototype folder in the plotr/lib/ directory and move the downloaded prototype.js file into it. Upload the entire plotr directory to your Web server, and you are ready to go.

Adding the actual chart to an HTML page is straightforward, especially if you are familiar with the JavaScript basics.
