I realize that this library is still pretty early on so I hope the author adds in more features/functionality. Will definitely be using this for my projects.

Pros:

Beautiful charts, easy to implement, easier to dissect and zoom through charts, decent documentation.

Cons:

None so far.

Thank you Ishan! More features and improvements will definitely be added depending on the feedback I get from users after they try it. The top thing that comes to my mind is to provide: - Wrappers for popular JavaScript libraries (React/Vue.js) - Additional export options - Provide an online editor where user can generate the chart, get the config code and paste it in their projects directly to speed up the development.

Hi, Maker of ApexCharts here. Here's a quick answer to "Why ApexCharts" despite having dozens of data-visualization libraries available in JavaScript. The following things I felt were missing in Open-source chart libraries (exclude low-level libraries). 1. Easier zooming/panning/scrolling of data 2. Callbacks/events for certain actions which allow more information to be returned, this can be helpful in creating dynamic and/or drill down charts. 3. Placing informative annotations on charts 4. Cool looking gauges 5. An option to customize nearly everything! There's a lot of room to grow, and I am open to feedback/ideas

The SaaS tool I am currently working for is mainly using two chart libraries: Google Charts (would like to replace as it's not open-source) and Chart.js (works well but not perfect). I really like the looks and functionality of ApexCharts and you have already come a long way. My main concern, though, is the future of this project. We can't implement if the project will be abandoned in 1 year or so. I guess there is no way you could give any guarantees and as I understand there is just one main developer right now? We are going to run some tests in staging soon to see if it is durable/reliable enough for some production use later this year. PS! I was super excited when I saw a new JS chart library on PH, and so far, I'm happy with what you've managed to build! Good luck and I really hope this project has a bright future! Silver

This charts look beautiful! We will replace some of our charts at cryptoground.com with this library.

Looks very nice! I was already thinking of updating one of my websites and this could go very well with it!
