What do you like best?

Practically anytime I need to change something about the charts, the value that I need to change or the event that I need to hook into is referenced somewhere in the documentation. I just have to find it.

There are very few situations where I need to do math own to alter the data so that I can get the results I want. There are so many different charts types available. People I work with keep wanting different ways to analyze the data that we have, and I'm thrilled that I can pretty much always find a solution in Highcharts so that I don't need to bring in any other libraries related to charting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only downside that I can find is that sometimes it takes a bit of searching to find the exact piece of the config I need to change in order to get the outcome that I want. However, I think that this has something to do with the fact that there is just so much you can do in Highcharts. There are so many options because they've made it so flexible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've worked at two companies that have used Highcharts to make complex data visualizations for quite large data sets. And, for this purpose, there's not really another library I'd want to use. I've been incredibly pleased with Highcharts over the past few years. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I saw a highcharts being used on a site do do beautiful visualisation of a course structure and wanted to try it myself. I am still in the experimental stage but it seems like an easy tool for data visualisation. It's worth trying out. I'm quite a novice but managed to get it started quite easily for testing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Perhaps not to highcharts fault, but still finding my way to get a hang of the documentation and was hoping for more video tutorials. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think the visualisation of data is so important to have an oversight of what is happening your company. It allows you to identify potential issues/problems quite easily. The interactive element amplifies it's value. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Well I have started Highchart Library with the version 4.X. I moved to subsequent versions launched by Highchart. Recently, I moved to the latest version 7.X. My overall experience with highchart library is just awesome and I would prefer to recommend the product to anyone. The reason for my liking towards this product and to recommend the product to all is due to below advantageous reasons:

1. The best part is we can export the chart as PDF as well as in JPG and PNG format on one click.

2. Highchart JS is completely free for non commercial use.

3. Coding standards are very simple and its very easy to use its coding standards.

4. To help out the naive users, free documentation is available on the official website.

5. HC Javascript library is too lightweight.

6. Highchart JS library provides a variety of charts like line , bar, pie, scatter charts etc which are very helpful and effective Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As it is completely free for non-commercial users but the licencing pricing for corporate users is too high which sometimes creates issues with the users. Also, sometimes it feels when data is too large and irregular data crashes the browser sometimes. Although, it works perfectly with the low volume of data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Start using it. Highchart JS will not disappoint you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We have been using Highcharts from version 4.x to current version 7.x. my overall experience is just awesome with Highcharts library.

Main advantages are below:

1. Highcharts library is too lightweight javascript and provides a variety of charts like line, bar candlestick, pie, spline and scatter charts etc.

2. Easy to use because of coding standards.

3. Free documentation is available on official website.

4. It is free for non commercial usage

5. It support multiple axis design.

6. It is working on cross browser and don't need flash play at all and i love that.

7. We can export the chart as PDF JPG and in PNG format as well using one click. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It feel hectic and irritating when we have irregular data for time range of more than one year and it crash the browser sometimes when rendering graph with low volume of data it works perfact.

Licensing price is quite higher for corporate user. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If requirements is too show rich look and feel with various type charts then Highcharts is good choice. It is easy to use and easy to implement code. Online library is available free of cost with different types of examples. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using it for 2 axis only like Mega watt on y axis and time on x axis.

Sometime we have per minute bar data on y axis and user can exactly check by zooming on chart with zooming options. User don't need to look at the profile grids.

User simply scroll the graph and take decision how the energy is flowing over time.

So we are using it in Energy and Trading applications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Highcharts is very powerful and has a rich API, which is well documented and there are a lot of examples that you can play around. This makes the library very customizable. Some of its best features include the ability to create interactive charts, real-time charts and its extensive documentation.

Highcharts supports a wide variety of charts out of the box including maps (using the HighMaps add-on) and offers lots of customization to the developers so that any type of visualization can be created.

Although it is a JavaScript library, it can easily be used to create charts on the server. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Although it is free for non-commercial use, its license is quite expensive. Also, the extensive API can be confusing at first. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highcharts is very powerful. I would suggest reading the documentation and trying out the examples that are within the documentation. The JS Fiddle links are very useful because they allow you to change the options easily to test the library. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Highcharts allows us to produce rich and beautiful reports rapidly. As it is written in JavaScript, it is something that we already know, which makes it very easy for us to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The charts are nicely responsive. I can alter the data and other aspects on the fly -- no need to upload or embed again. Plays well with the rest of the website. Highcharts shows potential for future development. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For anything beyond the basic templates and slight variations on them, you have to write code. In today's world, this is not visual chart making -- it is coding with quick view of the results. Much coding is a waste of my time. I expect that it will be a long time before Highcharts catches up with the graphic design world's needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's featured almost everywhere in commercial products. Tons of examples and documentation. Easy to customize to fit any kind of design.

I particularly like the export abilities, since writing them yourself often is out of questions if the charts are not the main feature of an app. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's pricey. Angular bindings could use some work, but this might be a problem with Angular2 just being around the corner when I've last used it.

At first, I was under the impression that customer support was top notch, but recently I've found out that they aren't responding to questions on StackOverflow. It used to be standard practice for library devs, but now it's not that popular.

Examples are much more useful than documentation, so if you have problems first look there. Mixing the two (more interactive documentation) could be helpful for users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Head to examples page, most of the important features are there.

Also check out CSS styling in 5.x series as it looks promising compared to what I was using with 4.x.

It is also a little bit miscategorized here on g2crowd. It's a charting library, not business intelligence tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Implementing various types of charts and graphs. Fits perfectly for a dashboard and any kind of analytics apps.

Included it so far in:

- Google Analytics data drill down app

- Various sources analytics aggregation app

- Game based on stats from project management tools

- Cryptocurrency exchange

- Recruitment support tool

It's very versatile and easy to customize to fit most kind of layouts and color schemes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Highcharts has a lot of things going for it, including being entirely written in javascript, which makes integrating with it a breeze, along with modifying anything as it is an open license. SInce it is written in javascript, it naturally compatible with almost any web browser, making it an excellent choice when you need to include charting capabilities on your site. Highcharts also has a wide variety of different charts, allowing you to expand your creativity with your site design. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

HighCharts only has a few drawbacks, but they are easy to remedy. The main issue I find is that text tends to overlap the chart lines, making it hard to read, while looking a bit amateurish. It is also a bit difficult if you are using custom graphics, as support is pretty much non-existent.. Regardless of having a few problems, this is very pleasant to work with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a chance, and it will quickly become one of the first components you think of when designing any site. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I am providing multiple features to my site, allowing people to easily understand and be drawn to the data that I am providing, while having the peace of mind that it will be compatible, regardless of the browser in use. I also have a wide range of capabilities, and can easily customize anything I need, as it is provided in an open-license. Highcharts also has a lot of documentation and examples on its site.

The number of charts you're able to plot using this library is overwhelming. Ranging from normal line graph to 3D scatter graph, you'll never run out of reasons not to use this library.

The usage is fairly simple. List down all your values and throw them into any predefined graph you like and the library will take care of everything. Furthermore, it's highly customizable with multiple demos for you to look through and learn from. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The documentation is confusing, at least for me. You do have to click and open up multiple webpages to view the configuration of a single type of graph as some graphs have configurations that other graphs are using. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the sheer power Highcharts affords to the implementing developer. With a vast amount of configuration, you can create any standard data visualization one could think of (or be directed to do) and in those instances where the vanilla offering of Highcharts (or Highstock) does not suffice, the library is extensible so you can write a custom plugin to do exactly what you want. Not only is the system extensible, but it's pretty easy to hook into the library internals to do some really fancy things on the plot or chart area. Furthermore, because it's SVG based you get a lot of cool performance and functionality benefits, one thing to mention is per-element eventing, so interactivity is enhanced. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the learning curve going from novice Highcharts user to advanced Highcharts user. A lot of the knowledge about higher orders of functionality that is possible using Highcharts is squirreled away in one of many StackOverflow posts or in an obscure blog post linked somewhere on the 10th page of search results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do your due diligence. If you have no need for interactivity or pure SVG charting, then you could use another library. However, Highcharts does non-interactive just as well, so there's really no need to look at different libraries. Just sayin' Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed an efficient, developer-friendly way of implementing data visualization of timeseries data from dynamic sources. Furthermore, there was an explicit customer need for interactivity with these visualizations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

- Very easy to use

- Produces beautiful, interactive graphics

- Supports lots of customization options, but has sensible defaults for almost everything

- Lots of plugins available for pretty much anything.

- You can extend Highcharts with your own plugins.

- The developers are very friendly with user contributions Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I really love Highcharts, there isn't much to dislike.

The only issue I've had is on 3D charts support - It could use some love from the developers.I've submitted a few patches for the larger issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need something which is not immediately available, look at the plugin section of their website -- There are lots of good stuff there.

If you are trying to create a non-standard or highly customized chart, D3 is also worth looking at - But using D3 requires much effort compared with Highcharts Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Easy of config.

It's as simple as a script reference in your HTML and then you start building.

The api and examples are very good.

JSON chart config is both familiar and standards based.

The range of charts is awesome and the ability to draw custom charts and overlays works really well.

Some of the nested config is a little confusing at times and could be done better imo. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It by far the easiest and quickest to setup above all other JS charting libraries. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rapid prototyping for clients is helping us both win new contracts and add value to existing one's.

We managed to reproduce over 40 legacy Jasper Reports based charts in under a month. Including the custom decorators we had developed in Java for Jasper. Obviously there is not need to extend Higjcharts in the same way as it's all built right in.

It's free for non-commercial use and it has plethora of chart types. Charts are interactive and looks nice. I also like possibility to export charts to different formats. Feature that I find very useful is possibility to drilldown in details. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

From technical side - we really need official support of HighCharts on AngularJS. One more thing that I want to mention is that I find it a bit pricey for single developer use, but I guess that's just me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

HighCharts are written in JavaScript and are easy to use. Since I first time used HC they added tons of things and new chart types, so that's clear sign that they have plans for future and that they are improving their product constantly. There are lots of charting systems out there but HC is my favorite since I first time used it. I did tried other charting systems, some of them are good, some are OK, but when someone asks me for my favorite, I always recommend HC. I also always mention that there is no official support for use in AngularJS but there are some unofficial solutions that work fine.

This is my personal experience with HighCharts as I only used it in several private, non-commercial projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I mainly solve UI and UX problems. Highcharts have all that I need out of the box (I used it for personal, non-commercial projects only), all I need to do is to forward data to it and it works which cuts down development time tremendously. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
