10 good looking SVG charts that will set your pants on fire![Link]
6th March 2017
As with the canvas chart libraries creating good looking charts with the SVG libraries is not difficult at all (unless you happen to be me). This is an article that shows you 10 examples of nice looking charts that have been made with the SVG libraries. You can find more good looking examples by browsing the demos that are included in the download archive.
A new stable release of RGraph is now available[Link]
18th February 2017
I've just released a new version of RGraph - version 4.61. You can read the changelog by clicking on the link. This release adds a new SVG based Scatter chart and Waterfall chart. To go with the Scatter chart there's a new RGraph.SVG.parseDate() function that accepts a wide variety of formats - eg: 2012-01-06 12:14:12 , 6 Jan 2012 12:14 , 31st , January 2012 12:14:12 , 31st January 2012 , 31st January , January 31 , 2012 January 31 . You can read the full list of changes on the changelog.
New RGraph beta[Link]
6th February 2017
I've just released a new RGraph beta. This beta includes two new SVG chart types - the Waterfall chart and the Scatter chart. To see how to use them there are a few demos that you can look over. The Scatter chart also supports date/time values instead of numeric X values and the date/time parsing supports many different formats. This makes date/time charts far easier. The SVG Bar chart has had a wave effect added: www.rgraph.net/demos/svg-bar-effect-wave.html And with tooltips, if a tooltip is already visible then new tooltips will slide into the correct position using a CSS transition. You can download it here: www.rgraph.net/download
Does anybody think that they can help with the RGraph website SEO?25th January 2017
The RGraph website is now secured with SSL7th January 2017
The RGraph website is now entirely SSL. And it was quite a smooth transition too. As for the boost from Google - I've not noticed anything as yet, but neither has there been a drop - so that's nice (I suppose...). It's only a basic SSL certificate that was bundled with my hosting, but if you're worried about nasty hackers snooping on what RGraph documentation pages you're reading. then you can now rest easy!
Version 4.60 of RGraph released[Link]
2nd January 2017
I've just added version 4.60 to the website - the latest release of RGraph. This release is focused on expanding the SVG charting side of RGraph (and certainly the next few releases will be too), with the addition of the Horizontal Bar chart, the Semi-circular Progress and the Radar chart. There's also new examples of a Horizontal Progress bar (using the HBar chart) and a Vertical Progress bar (using the Bar chart). The charts also now have a small, unobtrusive link to the RGraph website in the (by default) bottom right corner. You can change the appearance and position, as well as turn it off in case you're linking to the RGraph website elsewhere. Accessible text for the canvas libraries can now be angled just like native canvas text - but this should be considered 'beta' at the moment. As for the website, I've updated the style of the headers - not that this should concern you - but its nice to know isn't it? For the next release I'll be looking at adding more SVG chart types eg a Waterfall chart and perhaps other chart types too that aren't too taxing (!).
