C3.js vs React Chartkick: What are the differences?
C3.js and React Chartkick can be categorized as "Charting Libraries" tools.
Some of the features offered by C3.js are:
- Comfortable - C3 makes it easy to generate D3-based charts by wrapping the code required to construct the entire chart. We don't need to write D3 code any more.
- Customizable - C3 gives some classes to each element when generating, so you can define a custom style by the class and it's possible to extend the structure directly by D3.
- Controllable - C3 provides a variety of APIs and callbacks to access the state of the chart. By using them, you can update the chart even if after it's rendered.
On the other hand, React Chartkick provides the following key features:
- Line charts
- Pie charts
- Column charts
C3.js and React Chartkick are both open source tools. It seems that C3.js with 8.42K GitHub stars and 1.4K forks on GitHub has more adoption than React Chartkick with 1.07K GitHub stars and 53 GitHub forks.
