Say Goodbye To Timeouts

Make your pages load super fast and stop worrying about timeouts. Give each chart its own endpoint.

<line-chart data="/stocks"></line-chart>


Id, width, and height

<line-chart id="users-chart" width="800px" height="500px"></line-chart>

Min and max values

<line-chart :min="1000" :max="5000"></line-chart>

min defaults to 0 for charts with non-negative values. Use null to let the charting library decide.


<line-chart :colors="['#b00', '#666']"></line-chart>

Stacked columns or bars

<column-chart :stacked="true"></column-chart>

Discrete axis

<line-chart :discrete="true"></line-chart>

Label (for single series)

<line-chart label="Value"></line-chart>

Axis titles

<line-chart xtitle="Time" ytitle="Population"></line-chart>

Straight lines between points instead of a curve

<line-chart :curve="false"></line-chart>

Show or hide legend

<line-chart :legend="true"></line-chart>

Specify legend position

<line-chart legend="bottom"></line-chart>

Donut chart

<pie-chart :donut="true"></pie-chart>

Prefix, useful for currency - Chart.js, Highcharts

<line-chart prefix="$"></line-chart>

Suffix, useful for percentages - Chart.js, Highcharts

<line-chart suffix="%"></line-chart>

Set a thousands separator - Chart.js, Highcharts

<line-chart thousands=","></line-chart>

Set a decimal separator - Chart.js, Highcharts

<line-chart decimal=","></line-chart>

Show a message when data is empty

<line-chart :messages="{empty: 'No data'}"></line-chart>

Refresh data from a remote source every n seconds

<line-chart :refresh="60"></line-chart>

You can pass options directly to the charting library with:

<line-chart :library="{backgroundColor: '#eee'}"></line-chart>

See the documentation for Google Charts, Highcharts, and Chart.js for more info.


Pass data as an array or object

<pie-chart :data="{'Blueberry': 44, 'Strawberry': 23}"></pie-chart>
<pie-chart :data="[['Blueberry', 44], ['Strawberry', 23]]"></pie-chart>

Times can be a Date, a timestamp, or a string (strings are parsed)

<line-chart :data="[[new Date(), 5], [1368174456, 4], ['2017-01-01 00:00:00 UTC', 7]]"></line-chart>

Download Charts

Chart.js only

Give users the ability to download charts. It all happens in the browser - no server-side code needed.

<line-chart :download="true"></line-chart>

Set the filename

<line-chart download="boom"></line-chart>

Note: Safari will open the image in a new window instead of downloading.
