    Usage

    import ApexCharts from 'apexcharts'
    

    To create a basic bar chart with minimal configuration, write as follows:

    var options = {
      chart: {
        type: 'bar'
      },
      series: [
        {
          name: 'sales',
          data: [30, 40, 35, 50, 49, 60, 70, 91, 125]
        }
      ],
      xaxis: {
        categories: [1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999]
      }
    }
    
    var chart = new ApexCharts(document.querySelector('#chart'), options)
    chart.render()
    

    This will render the following chart

    A little more than the basic

    You can create a combination of different charts, sync them and give your desired look with unlimited possibilities. Below is an example of synchronized charts with github style.

    Interactivity

    Zoom, Pan, and Scroll through data. Make selections and load other charts using those selections. An example showing some interactivity

    Dynamic Series Update

    Another approach is to Drill down charts where one selection updates the data of other charts. An example of loading dynamic series into charts is shown below

    Annotations

    Annotations allow you to write custom text on specific values or on axes values. Valuable to expand the visual appeal of your chart and make it more informative.

    Mixed Charts

    You can combine more than one chart type to create a combo/mixed chart. Possible combinations can be line/area/column together in a single chart. Each chart type can have its own y-axis.

    Candlestick

    Use a candlestick chart (a common financial chart) to describe price changes of a security, derivative, or currency. The below image shows how you can use another chart as a brush/preview pane which acts as a handle to browse the main candlestick chart.

    Heatmaps

    Use Heatmaps to represent data through colors and shades. Frequently used with bigger data collections, they are valuable for recognizing patterns and areas of focus.

    Gauges

    The tiny gauges are an important part of a dashboard and are useful in displaying single-series data. A demo of these gauges:

    Sparklines

    Utilize sparklines to indicate trends in data, for example, occasional increments or declines, monetary cycles, or to feature the most extreme and least values:
