AnyChart is now open!
|Basically, it means we fully opened the following:
– Issue tracker – so you can help us further improve our products, if you can/want.
– Build scripts – to let you compile custom binaries with the chart types you need.
– List of branches – to demonstrate our development cycle and prove you can trust us.
|Social Network Sharing
The Pareto chart, named after prominent economist and sociologist Vilfredo Pareto, is currently one of the most popular chart types in the field of management. And we simply could not make you get along without it anymore. So, let’s all welcome the Pareto chart type! Starting from the 7.13.0 version, AnyChart offers it out of the box. Now you can easily create a Pareto chart by using the anychart.pareto() constructor.
|Step, Stick, Jump Line Charts
Please also meet these major new arrivals to the list of chart types supported in AnyChart and AnyStock. We introduced Backward and Forward modifications of the Step chart as well as the Jump Line and Stick. The Step Line Forward and Step Line Backward charts are now available with the help of the stepDirection() method. To add a Jump Line chart or create a Stick chart, use the jumpLine() and stick() methods.
|Custom Series Drawing
Imagination is freedom. You definitely need to easily visualize your data exactly the way you see it. And we keep on doing our best to deliver you the ultimate customization features. Now we added the new rendering() method to AnyChart and AnyStock so you could put any creative idea into action and build any custom chart. Custom drawing examples: Frog Chart, Cherry Chart, and Column Chart with Rounded Edges.
We added new options to work with the legend in AnyChart, AnyMap and AnyStock. First, the itemsLayout() now lets you improve the legend’s visual appearance, especially when multiple series are displayed. Second, the legend can now be placed inside a data plot (the positionMode() method) to facilitate a more efficient use of space on a chart. Third, the drag() method allows you to easily position the legend on your JS chart.
|New Technical Indicators
To expand the range of stock JS (HTML5) charting opportunities available in AnyStock, we added more of technical indicators: Adaptive Moving Average (AMA); Modified Moving Average (MMA); Average True Range (ATR); KDJ; Bollinger Bands (BBands); Bollinger Bands %B (BBands %B); Bollinger Bands Width (BBands Width); Stochastic Oscillator (Fast / Slow / Full). Learn more of all the technical indicators in our Docs.
|Individual Point Settings
|Resource Chart Interactivity
With the previous, 7.12.0 release of AnyGantt, we introduced the redesigned Resource chart. In the new, 7.13.0 version of this HTML5 / JS library, we are glad to present you several major new features added this time. First of all, now you can enable and adjust the Hover and Select interactivity settings in our new Resource charts.
|Resource Chart Events
First of all, now you can enable and adjust the Hover and Select interactivity settings in our new Resource charts.
|Resource Chart Tooltips
Third, we have also added Tooltips to the new Resource chart with the current 7.13.0 release of AnyGantt. They will help you display additional information about each activity you are visualizing, in a convenient, greatly interactive way.
|Connector Customization in Gantt Charts
Of course, we could not leave our Gantt charts without proper attention with regard to new features. This time we made tuning the visual appearance of the Live Editing mode in HTML5 Gantt charts more flexible by adding the new Connector Customization features. You are welcome to take a look at them in action in AnyGantt’s Gallery.
By the way, we have already scheduled the next major update on May 2017. Please see the roadmaps of AnyChart, AnyStock, AnyMap and AnyGantt in case you would like to find out what you will get with that release. All in all, 2017 is going to be no less fruitful in terms of new features in AnyChart JS Charts than the rich year of 2016!
Please contact our Support Team at any time when you have any questions or requests for new features. We’ll be glad to be of help, as always!

8 Dashboard Design Trends for 2017 March 28th, 2017 by AnyChart Team
With the explosion of data in the past few years, the relevance of understanding it better has grown to the highest extent. That is why expertise in interactive charting and dashboard design, as well as in the whole big Data Visualization and Data Science fields in general, has become so important nowadays. In fact, it is usually rather difficult to understand raw data as deeply and quickly as needed. Luckily, neat visual representation of information can be helpful in clarifying even very large amounts of data, discovering and exploring patterns in data, and then making (right) data-driven decisions.
Creating dashboards is a great way of transforming diverse relevant data into informative, insightful visualizations as the basis for further analysis. In order to obtain the highest possible efficiency, they should be insightful, featuring robust usability, and visually (and aesthetically) appealing.
Today we’ll talk about the most notable dashboard design trends. Understanding them is very important to each data professional who wants to further improve their skills by keeping up with the times and adhering to the best practices.

The current issue highlights several visualizations of America’s military expenditure, bus schedule as a chart for resource management, and explanation on how to use color in data visualization to the best effect.
Technical Support Dashboard is a great tool to keep track of all the support and related activities in your company. It can be very helpful in both monitoring your support team’s performance and revealing issue patterns in customer requests for further use by product strategy and development officers. And when you already have data, all you need is to decide how to visualize it, preferably quickly, easily, and fully compatibly with your own corporate software.
