Having read this post : Privacy risk in using Google APIs, I am wondering what are the alternatives with no privacy concern, esp. for website charting development(e.g. chart.js)?

  • I would also be grateful anyone could point out a software can detect/scan those API, built JS library whether it has potential of privacy threats. (e.g. malware/Adware-like)

I've used RGraph to make custom charts. I consider RGraph an undervalued tool, with tons of options and details. By default is not very nice, but if you just mimic the Google Chart colors and tinker a bit, your graphs become "cute and good enough". Also, lots of demos, examples and good documentation.

  • Thanks! First time heard this. Looks promising. incl. interactive SVG charting? How do we know whether it has e.g. any google API linked or embedded? (PS: sorry I would like to upvote but I need at least 15 points :-(

  • I think it has no Google API bindings, but you can use ajax and csv if I recall well Jun 4, 2020 at 22:38
