AnyChart AnyChart is a flexible JavaScript (HTML5) based charting solution.

The very first version of AnyChart hit the shelves more than 10 years ago, check out what our products went through and see what's new in the most recent update.

Version History

TreeMap Chart

We are happy to announce that we have added one of the best chart types for showing hierarchical data – TreeMap Chart. It has all the features allowing to create treemap-based solutions: Drill-Down API, Flexible Interactivity Settings, Hint Depth Feature, and smart Labels/Headers display modes. Hierarchical Data Engine allows to add, alter, and search hierarchical data sets.


To make it easier to integrate AnyChart Charts in your website or application, and to help you to choose matching colors, we present you with 18 out-of-the-box themes. These themes are based on 13 color palettes, which can be used with or without the themes. You can change or use themes how you like, attuning them to your requirements.

Save as Excel/CSV/XML/JSON

We have extended our Export API. Now you can not only export your chart as an image or PDF, but also grab data or configuration settings with these four new methods:

Chart Statistics

By popular request, we have made the getStat method available outside of TextFormatter functions : now you have access to statistical data that AnyChart engine calculates any time you want. Please note that you can use statistical data to fine-tune your visualisation or highlight some data points and that it can be done before the chart is drawn

Context Menu

Context menu now comes out-of-the-box too. By default, it provides Print, Export, and other commonly used items. You can add your own elements or remove default ones; context menu look is customizable too.

Keep/Exclude Data Point

Exclude/Include Points API and ability to use this API in the context menu allows you and any chart viewer to hide some parts of the chart. You can create complex data mining applications that show more information and make it easier to understand.

3D Charts Improvements

For those of you who like to use 3D charts, we’ve added the Z-Axis Distribution option, animations, and the ability to use hatch fill.

3D Bar/Column Chart

Though data visualization specialists take a negative attitude towards any Pseudo 3D graphics, we think that our 3D Bar and Column Charts are able to complement and enhance any visualization. You can adjust the angle and depth using the zAngle and zDepth methods.

3D Area Chart

We are very proud that we have succeeded to create such a beautiful 3D Area chart. Just as in the case of 3D Bar/Column Charts, you can adjust the angle and depth using the zAngle and zDepth methods.

String Tokens

The String Tokens feature is an alternative to formatting text in labels and tooltips using formatting functions. Unlike functions, String Tokens are much more convenient in simple cases. They provide more flexibility in terms of settings serialization and are more familiar to the customers that have been using our Flash-based components.

Migration Tool

Migration Tool is a small JavaScript library with an open source code, which is aimed to facilitate the transition from AnyChart 6 to AnyChart 7. Its main function is converting AnyChart 6 XML/JSON settings to AnyChart 7 settings. This library also contains special functions for partial conversion and creating custom converters.

Performance Improvement

In this release we have significantly improved performance: the number of points that can be displayed in less than a second has increased from 3000 to 10000. However, it is not the limit of AnyChart capabilities. Every release contains performance improvements, and we are not going to stop!

Theming allows you to set similar visual and functional settings for all charts without the need to duplicate code. You can store themes in a separate file, reuse them and switch when needed.

Error Charts are to be used as error or deviation indicators. Error bars often represent one standard deviation of uncertainty, one standard error, or a certain confidence interval.

Box and Whisker Chart

Box Charts are predominantly used in descriptive statistics. Using a box chart is a way of representing groups of numerical data. Boxes operate with specific terms, such as whiskers, quartiles, and median.

Radar Chart

A Radar chart is a graphical method of displaying multivariate data in the form of a two-dimensional chart of three or more quantitative variables represented on axes starting from the same point.

Polar Chart

Polar chart plot allows to draw scatter chart using polar coordinate system, which is is a two-dimensional coordinate system in which each point on a plane is determined by a distance from a fixed point and an angle from a fixed direction.
