Charted vs Highcharts: What are the differences?

Developers describe Charted as "A charting tool that produces automatic, shareable charts from any data file". Charted is a tool for automatically visualizing data, created by the Product Science team at Medium. Provide the link to a data file and Charted returns a beautiful, interactive, and shareable chart of the data. On the other hand, Highcharts is detailed as "A charting library written in pure JavaScript, offering an easy way of adding interactive charts to your web site or web application". Highcharts currently supports line, spline, area, areaspline, column, bar, pie, scatter, angular gauges, arearange, areasplinerange, columnrange, bubble, box plot, error bars, funnel, waterfall and polar chart types.

Charted and Highcharts can be categorized as "Charting Libraries" tools.

Some of the features offered by Charted are:

  • Rendering well on all screen sizes, including monitors
  • Re-fetching the data and updating the chart every 30 minutes
  • Moving data series into separate charts

On the other hand, Highcharts provides the following key features:

  • It works in all modern mobile and desktop browsers including the iPhone/iPad and Internet Explorer from version 6
  • Free for non-commercial
  • One of the key features of Highcharts is that under any of the licenses, free or not, you are allowed to download the source code and make your own edits

Charted and Highcharts are both open source tools. It seems that Highcharts with 8.75K GitHub stars and 2.31K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Charted with 2.73K GitHub stars and 193 GitHub forks.
