This is a very young collection of components, with the goal of keeping these components very customizable, staying away from your standard cookie cutter solutions.

        We use Plotly (just their open source stuff) for Zulip's user-facing and admin-facing statistics graphs because it's a reasonably well-designed JavaScript graphing library.

        If you've tried using D3.js, it's a pretty poor developer experience, and that translates to spending a bunch of time getting the graphs one wants even for things that are conceptually pretty basic. Plotly isn't amazing (it's decent), but it's way better than than D3 unless you have very specialized needs.

        Review ofD3.jsD3.js

        There is so much to like about D3js. It's Javascript, SVG, interactive, it's flexible, fairly well documented...definitely one of the most powerful tools in my webdev toolbox. On top of all that, I occasionally use D3 to produce my version of art.

        D3.js is an amazing library for doing visualizations, charts/graphs, etc. We are experimenting with it for metric visualizations, marketing graphs/charts, and basically anywhere we could use this amazing library.

        Charts, charts, charts. Data visualizations are a great way to communicate information to people who need to know it, quickly and concisely.
