JavaScript charting framework

Highcharts is a JavaScript charting library based on SVG, with fallbacks to VML and canvas for old browsers. This package also contains Highstock, the financial charting package, and Highmaps for geo maps.

This package is intended for supporting client-side JavaScript charting through bundlers like Parcel or Webpack and environments like Babel or TypeScript. If you indend to generate static charts on the server side, use the Highcharts node.js Export Server instead.

  // options - see https://api.highcharts.com/highcharts
});

The following examples presumes you are using npm to install Highcharts, see Download and install Highcharts for more details.

Babel

import Highcharts from 'highcharts';
// Alternatively, this is how to load Highstock. Highmaps is similar.
// import Highcharts from 'highcharts/highstock';

// Load the exporting module.
import Exporting from 'highcharts/modules/exporting';
// Initialize exporting module.
Exporting(Highcharts);

// Generate the chart
Highcharts.chart('container', {
  // options - see https://api.highcharts.com/highcharts
});

TypeScript

import * as Highcharts from 'highcharts';
// Alternatively, this is how to load Highstock. Highmaps is similar.
// import Highcharts from 'highcharts/highstock';

// Load the exporting module.
import * as Exporting from 'highcharts/modules/exporting';
// Initialize exporting module.
Exporting(Highcharts);

// Generate the chart
Highcharts.chart('container', {
