I am looking at a more recent and modern chart js library than flot.

My problem with flot is that it does not support well mobile and tablet. At the last resort, I will have to use myself hammer.js to code something. But if that would come built-in or with some plugin with another library, that would be nice.

  • I tried chart.js, and it is slow to render my data (which are not that huge). Zooming is slow. I don't know if there is something to configure here. Panning does not work. I can't find help to debug this. No IRC, no forum.

  • I tried taucharts. Which is huge in size, coming with d3. And very slow to render my data. I did not see anything to zoom or pan, yet. May be I have not looked well.

  • I tried echarts. But I couldn't make it work I don't know why. I got an error and I can't debug this. My fault here.

So I am looking for something as lightweight as possible coming with zoom/pan built-in or with plugin.

  • If you think taucharts is took large, because it s based on d3, then you probably won't accept D3js, which is a pity as it the best there is Sep 12, 2018 at 13:00

    It's not that I mind d3, but bare d3.js seems a whole framework or language to learn and master. Quite a beast, it seems. I just have a line plot and a bar chart to draw and update.

  • Ah, now I undestand. Learning curve. Well, there are certainly simpler libraries. OTOH, d3hs has plenty of examples & dcoumentation. I just copied & altered. If there is even a slim chance that you might want to use some of those tempting baubles, then you may as well jump right in now :-) Sep 12, 2018 at 19:36
