The Chartist Guy

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

  • use the wrong technologies for illustration (canvas)
  • weighs hundreds of kilobytes
  • are not flexible enough while keeping the configuration simple
  • are not friendly to designers
  • more annoying things

That's why we started Chartist and our goal is to solve all of the above issues.


Install this library using your favorite package manager:

pnpm add chartist

Then, just import chart you want and use it:

import { BarChart } from 'chartist';

new BarChart('#chart', {
labels: ['W1', 'W2', 'W3', 'W4', 'W5', 'W6', 'W7', 'W8', 'W9', 'W10'],
series: [
[1, 2, 4, 8, 6, -2, -1, -4, -6, -2]
}, {
high: 10,
low: -10,
axisX: {
labelInterpolationFnc: (value, index) => (index % 2 === 0 ? value : null)
