A new SVG Funnel chartRead more...
16th May 2017
Will wonders never cease? No Google hasn't ranked me on page one (hah - I should be so lucky!) - no I've found it in myself (somewhere) to create an SVG Funnel chart, and you can see a screenshot of it if you look at the picture. (if you don't look at the picture, you won't see it). The Funnel doesn't taper to a point like the canvas version did when I first made it - it makes more sense I think if it doesn't. I still have some options to add regarding the labels and their positioning but as you can see from the screenshot, and like an aging bottle of Sauvignon blanc, it's already pretty damned fine.
New stable version of RGraphRead more...

On Sunday I added the latest version (4.62 stable) of RGraph to the website. You can download it from the download page (www.rgraph.net/download#stable). There's a new SVG Rose chart which has four distinct modes, various fixes to the SVG libraries. You can read the full changelog here: www.rgraph.net/changelog

7th May 2017
I've just released a new beta version of RGraph. This version has the new SVG Rose chart which has regular, stacked, non-equi-angular and stacked non-equi-angular variations. There are demos in the archive of each so you'll be able to see examples of the various modes quite easily. The 3D Bar chart also now has support for having the X axis either in the center or offset. You can download it from the download page.

30th April 2017
It was years in the making - not quite the 65 million of the Jurassic Park film (cough) - but now it's here regardless. Possibly the greatest thing since sliced bread - and that was pretty damn good! The SVG Rose chart now supports a mode that the canvas Rose chart doesn't - the stacked, non-equi-angular variation. Behold its wonder... And the pinkness too. And it actually only took me a day to make - not years. But hey ho. Not only are there stacked segments, but each set of values can be configured to take a varying segment size (in terms of angle). This lets you show multiple dimensions of data. It will be available in the next release of RGraph - which should be soon I'm hoping. (Follow the link to see the image on the Facebook page)

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 betaRead more...
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
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!
