Create Simple Gantt Chart Using JavaScript — Tutorial September 4th, 2019 by Alfrick Opidi

Create Simple Gantt Chart Using JavaScript — Tutorial

Use a JavaScript library to create a Gantt chart and take your project management efforts to the next level.

Earlier this year, my team was looking for a project management tool that could assist us in charting the various tasks related to our app development project against some specific timelines. After doing some research, we finally settled on Gantt charts. However, some people think Gantts are complicated to create. Not true! Thanks to numerous JavaScript chart libraries, data visualization is now simple, flexible, and embeddable.

In our situation, we settled on AnyChart’s JS Charts library because of its ease of use, extensive documentation, flexible code playground for trying out stuff, and other powerful features.

In this tutorial, I’ll walk you through how to create a simple interactive Gantt chart using this data visualization library. Here’s what we’ll be making and you can get the entire code for creating such a Gantt chart at the end of the tutorial:
