Chart.js vs Recharts: What are the differences?
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; Recharts: Redefined chart library built with React and D3. Quickly build your charts with decoupled, reusable React components. Built on top of SVG elements with a lightweight dependency on D3 submodules.
Chart.js and Recharts can be primarily classified as "Charting Libraries" tools.
Chart.js and Recharts are both open source tools. Chart.js with 44.3K GitHub stars and 9.71K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Recharts with 11.9K GitHub stars and 918 GitHub forks.
I have used highcharts and it is pretty awesome for my previous project. now as I am about to start my new project I want to use other charting libraries such as recharts, chart js, Nivo, d3 js.... my upcoming project might use react js as front end and laravel as a backend technology. the project would be of hotel management type. please suggest me the best charts to use
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.
