Chart.js vs React D3 Library: What are the differences?

What is Chart.js? 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.

What is React D3 Library? The easiest way to use D3.js in React. An open source library that will allow developers the ability to reroute D3 output to React’s virtual DOM. Just use your existing D3 code, and with a few simples lines, you can now harness the power of React with the flexibility of D3!.

Chart.js and React D3 Library can be categorized as "Charting Libraries" tools.

Chart.js and React D3 Library are both open source tools. It seems that Chart.js with 44.3K GitHub stars and 9.71K forks on GitHub has more adoption than React D3 Library with 873 GitHub stars and 56 GitHub forks.

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.
