About the RGraph software

RGraph is a modern JavaScript based charts and graphs library for modern websites. With the number of different types of charts having grown to 40-50 RGraph has a wide appeal and can represent many types of data quickly and efficiently. RGraph is licensed using a dual license scheme - the GPL and a non-GPL option which you can read about here.

RGraph is suitable for all websites with charts being rendered using JavaScript and HTML5 canvas. The size of the JavaScript files and the code to make a chart is small and can be further reduced with minification and compression and so offers significant speed boosts to a website.

 

About Richard Heyes (the author)

An avid snow-boarder and extreme sports enthusiast I've been in the technology sector in the United Kingdom for over 20 years, and in the web development sector specifically for 16 of those.

Starting in a telephone technical support role for consumer desktops for a well known UK high street brand I then moved into a firm doing dedicated desktop support. Both jobs were not exactly... ideal! (Though that might be because I wasn't particularly good at them...)

But from there I was able to start web based programming, using the emerging PHP, and go onwards and upwards, working for firms in the south of England near London, including one of largest film rental firms in the country. and an investment tracking and reporting firm that was headed by a well known investor.

Throughout this period I was able to work on various pieces of Open Source software which were distributed via my phpguru.org website (incidentally you can download some of the former phpguru PHP/JavaScript code here).

The technical expertise that has resulted from working on these high traffic websites and Open Source projects lends itself well to producing high quality software with great performance and is easily usable.

Unfortunately all of this came to an abrupt halt some years ago when I suffered a severe illness which left me with significantly reduced vision and mobility. But handily that lends itself well to sitting in front of a computer staring at the monitor!
