Highcharts is a JavaScript library that enables web developers to create a wide range of different, highly customized charts. Highcharts easily integrates with existing JavaScript frameworks and is simple enough to make a column chart in a few lines of code, but flexible enough to handle more complex charting scenarios such as viewing multiple chart types with different data sources on a multitude of devices and form-factors. Highcharts is solely based on native browser technologies and doesn't require client side plugins like Flash or Java. Furthermore readers don't need to install anything on their server. No PHP or ASP.NET. Highcharts needs only two JS files to run: The highcharts.js core and either the jQuery, MooTools or Prototype framework. One of these frameworks is most likely already in use in reader's web page.
