JavaScript Graph Visualization Libraries Updated — Check Out AnyChart 8.7.0 with New Awesome Features! August 8th, 2019 by AnyChart Team

JavaScript Graph Visualization Libraries Updated - Check Out AnyChart 8.7.0 with New Awesome JS Charting Features!AnyChart 8.7.0 is out with a lot of new awesome data visualization features. Look what we’ve added to our JavaScript graph libraries in this major update.

New Features in AnyChart 8.7.0

Client-side export of JS charts delivered in AnyChart 8.7.0
Client-Side Export

We’ve added the client-side export feature to all our JavaScript charting libraries — AnyChart, AnyStock, AnyGantt, and AnyMap. This will allow you to have your data visualizations saved as images — SVG, PNG, and JPG — and PDF documents without a roundtrip to the server, by leveraging the built-in browser features for a seamless JS chart export, fast and secure.

UI controls to swap and maximize JS stock charts delivered in AnyStock 8.7.0 by AnyChart
Stock UI Controls: Swap and Maximize

The AnyStock JS library is now provided with three new UI controls in the form of buttons — “Up,” “Down,” and “Maximize.” The buttons make it easy for the viewer, market data analyst or trader, to swap the adjoining stock charts by moving one of them up or down, or maximize a certain visualization so it fills the entire page.

JS stock chart plot splitter delivered in AnyStock 8.7.0 by AnyChart
Stock Plot Splitter

A splitter is now automatically created between stock chart plots. It enables the viewer to change the relative height of the charts by dragging them up or down. This feature can facilitate data analysis when multiple stock or financial charts are drawn on the same page one above the other, allowing the viewer to make a (currently) more important visualization bigger than the others.

Infinite range annotations in JS stock charts delivered in AnyStock 8.7.0 by AnyChart
Infinite Range Annotations

In release 8.7.0, we’ve also delivered two new annotations to the AnyStock JavaScript graph library. These are infinite ranges — horizontal and vertical. So now they can be drawn on stock and financial charts powered by AnyStock using a ready-to-use UI, allowing you to avoid coding them as range axis markers, and therefore to save you a lot of time and effort. In our gallery, you’ll find two examples of how these annotations can look — horizontal range demo and vertical range demo.

New technical indicators for technical analysis delivered in AnyStock 8.7.0 by AnyChart including ENV, IKH, PPO, RCI, and PSY
New Technical Indicators

Five new out-of-the-box indicators for technical analysis are now available in stock charts: Envelope (ENV), Ichimoku Cloud (IKH), Price Oscillator (PPO), Rank Correlation Index (RCI), and Psychological Line (PSY). You’ll find stock chart examples showcasing these and other technical indicators in a special section of our gallery.

Milestone preview on parent task bars in JS Gantt charts delivered in AnyGantt 8.7.0 by AnyChart
Milestone Preview on Parent Task Bar

Milestone preview on the parent task bar is now available in the AnyGantt library. This new feature will allow the viewer of a Gantt chart to quickly understand what milestones such a task has and then expand it to learn the details if needed. Check out an example of a Gantt chart with milestone preview in our gallery.

Custom markers for milestones in JS Gantt charts delivered in AnyGantt 8.7.0 by AnyChart
Custom Marker for Milestone

In release 8.7.0, we’ve also added an option to customize milestone markers on Gantt charts by type and color. So now you can easily differentiate between the milestones of non-identical nature within the same project by depicting them in different ways. Look at a Gantt chart example with custom markers in our gallery.

Custom basic year in JS Gantt charts delivered in AnyGantt 8.7.0 by AnyChart
Custom Basic Year

Previously, our Gantt charts only supported the calendar year as the basic year period. Now, it is possible to define a custom one. For example, you can go ahead and set a fiscal (financial) year, or an academic year, or any other year depending on what point of reference you actually need in this regard; quarters will be formed accordingly. Here’s a fiscal year demo.

Polygonal selection in JS maps delivered in AnyMap 8.7.0 by AnyChart
Polygonal Selection in Maps

We’ve made it possible to select points on JS map charts powered by the AnyMap library by drawing a polygon. In addition to the rectangular marquee, such a complex, polygonal selection can now be easily configured using our API and is also available to the end user from the context menu. Give it a try on a dedicated selection type demo in our gallery.

More JavaScript Graph Visualization Improvements in Version 8.7.0

In fact, release 8.7.0 has delivered even more improvements as well as bug fixes.

Check out the version histories of our products for more information:

The next major update of our JavaScript graph visualization libraries will bring multiple other improvements.
