If you are building almost any type of web application (like dashboards) you probably need powerful charting components to help you visually represent your data in a way your users can easily understand. In addition, there are a wide variety of front-end Javascript frameworks you can choose from to make it happen. That’s why today we take a look at 6 different front-end JavaScript frameworks that are supported by FusionCharts. The plan is to show you the source code you need to create for each framework to make a simple chart.

Once we are done, you can look at the source code yourself and compare how much code it takes in each framework to make it happen. Hopefully, you will also be able to decide which framework is the most readable and understandable to you.

Regardless of what JavaScript framework you are using, however, you should be able to use it with FusionCharts to deliver a powerful user experience.

Note: Keep in mind when you make your comparisons that some of the frameworks embed the chart data in the code.

Let’s get started!

React Component for FusionCharts

With FusionCharts, you can add React charts and graphs like areabardonutlinemarimekkoradarstockcharts, and 100+ other charts.  You can also add 2000+ maps to your web or mobile application.

import FusionCharts from 'fusioncharts';
import Charts from 'fusioncharts/fusioncharts.charts';
import ReactFC from 'react-fusioncharts';
import FusionTheme from 'fusioncharts/themes/fusioncharts.theme.fusion';

const chartConfigs = {
  type: 'column2d',
  width: 600,
  height: 400,
  dataFormat: 'json',
  dataSource: {/* see data tab */ },
};

class Chart extends Component {
  render () {

}

ReactDOM.render(
  <Chart />,
  document.getElementById('root'),
);
