Chart.js vs Konva: What are the differences?

Developers describe Chart.js as "Simple, clean and engaging charts for designers and developers". Visualize your data in 6 different ways. Each of them animated, with a load of customisation options and interactivity extensions. On the other hand, Konva is detailed as "2d html5 canvas library for desktop and mobile applications". It is an HTML5 Canvas JavaScript framework that extends the 2d context by enabling canvas interactivity for desktop and mobile applications. It enables high performance animations, transitions, node nesting, layering, filtering, caching, event handling for desktop and mobile applications, and much more.

Chart.js belongs to "Charting Libraries" category of the tech stack, while Konva can be primarily classified under "Javascript Utilities & Libraries".

Some of the features offered by Chart.js are:

  • animated
  • HTML5 based
  • Responsive

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

  • Built-in in support for HDPI devices with pixel ratio optimizations for sharp text and shapes
  • Object Oriented API
  • Node nesting and event bubbling

Chart.js is an open source tool with 45.2K GitHub stars and 9.89K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Chart.js's open source repository on GitHub.

Highcharts

I've used Highcharts with both Angular Js Reactive applications (render as ReactJs) and also a bit of D3. Personally I found Highcharts to be the easiest to use but, with still quite a good level of customisability if you need it. graphs and charts then give D3 a try.
