Introduction to the FusionCharts VueJS Component

FusionCharts Suite XT comes with an extensive range of charts, gauges, and maps that can be used to plot static and real-time data.

The Vue-FusionCharts component lets you include FusionCharts in your VueJS projects and add interactive JavaScript charts and graphs to your VueJS applications. Before we get into the installation process of the component, let’s take a look at what sets the VueJS component apart.

Some of the basic features of VueJS component are:

  • Enables interactivity between more than one chart.

  • Auto-updates the chart object when the data source is modified.

  • Can render charts using a JSON/XML URL or Props array binding.

In this article, we will talk about how you can download and install the Vue-FusionCharts component on your system.

Installing the Vue-FusionCharts component

To install the Vue-FusionCharts component for your applications, follow the steps given below:

Step 1: Include fusioncharts.js and vue-fusioncharts.js

In your HTML code, include the fusioncharts.js and vue-fusioncharts.js JavaScript files, as shown in the code below:

<script type="text/javascript" src="[email protected]"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="[email protected]/themes/fusioncharts.theme.fint.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

It is mandatory to add the vue-fusioncharts.js file after all the other script files.

Step 2: Define the chart configuration

As shown in the code below, in your JavaScript code, define an object that contains the configuration for a FusionCharts Suite XT chart. Set the chart data source using the regular FusionCharts JSON format .

data = {
    type: 'column2d',
    width: '500',
    height: '300',
    dataFormat: 'json',
    dataSource: myDataSource

Step 3: Render the Chart

To pass the chart configuration, we have added the code from step 2 to Vue.use(VueFusionCharts). The combined code is shown below:


const myDataSource = {

const chart = new Vue({
    el: '#app',
    data: {
        type: 'column2d',
        width: '500', //to specify the width of the chart
        height: '300', //to specify the height of the chart
        dataFormat: 'json',
        dataSource: myDataSource

The HTML template to render the chart is:

<div id="app">

Once the installation is complete, you will be ready to start creating and customizing your charts using the vue-fusioncharts component. The subsequent articles in this section will tell you how.
