Flot: Pure Javascript Plotting Library

December 13, 2007

Yet more chart drawing goodness. This takes a different approach to the Google model by generating really good looking graphs all on the client-side in javascript - very nice!

Flot is a pure Javascript plotting library for jQuery. It produces graphical plots of arbitrary datasets on-the-fly client-side. The focus is on simple usage (all settings are optional), attractive looks and interactive features like zooming. Although Flot is easy to use, it is also advanced enough to be suitable for Web 2.0 data mining/business intelligence purposes which is its original application. The plugin is targeting all newer browsers.
