Polychart.jsPolychart.js is a JavaScript charting library with a powerful grammar. Inspired by ggplot2, Polychart.js takes things further by having interactivity between charts built in.

Version 2 of Polychart.js was released this week. We took all the feedback that we received and rebuilt Polychart.js around a design that is inspired by The Grammar of Graphic and the R package ggplot2. On top of this, we added an interactive layer that allows charts to communicate with each other, a feature that is missing from most visualization libraries currently out today.

Polychart.js uses Raphael.js internally for SVG rendering. Raphael.js falls back to VML in older Internet Explorer browsers, and still works on tablets. This means that your interactive charts can be viewed by almost anyone.

We worked hard to provide full documentation and the code is available on github. Visit polychartjs.com for more information.
