Learning Highcharts – A book shows you what you can do with Highcharts

by Joe Kuan

Highcharts is an HTML 5 JavaScript charting library which offers stunning graph presentation, highly flexible configurations, APIs and events, a great selection of different types of charts.

Here is my first published book, Learning Highcharts, showing you what you can do with Highcharts. This book contains :

  • a step by step guide from simple to presentable charts
  • a missing manual on topics such as: chart layout policy, color shading, etc
  • application demos with dynamic and interactive charts using Highcharts APIs and events
  • a guide to setup Highcharts running on the server-side
  • application demos with mobile web framework jQuery Mobile and desktop Rich Internet Application framework Ext JS
  • many examples of charts with series types: line/spline, area spline, column, bar, scatter, pie, gauge, polar, area range and column range
  • even more examples on charts with specific configurations such as: projection line chart, stacked mirror chart, horizontal gauge chart, and much more

  1. Web Charts
