I'm looking for a little bit of advice about this:

I am developing an ecommerce component and I need to do some sales charts.

I have seen that some developers use the jqplot library and others use Google Chart.

Anyone have any experience on this or can advise me, please.


  • Thanks for your help. I found this place to do some comparing fusioncharts.com/javascript-charting-comparison Jun 4, 2014 at 13:46
  • Also I am doing some research on use: Hikashop -> google chart // Akeeba Suscription -> jqplot // jMarquet -> google chart // RedShop -> apparently has no charts // VirtueMart -> apparently has no charts Jun 4, 2014 at 13:49
  • The highchart library is also easy to integrate.

Google Charts is plain simple, and you don't add Kbytes to your download. I've implemented Google Charts to fill chart requirements.

jqPlot library (and similar libraries) provides a better feature set, and you can also customize advanced features, but you have to manage the full installation (version, size, etc).


Rocket theme has been adding Chart.js to their templates lately, it looks pretty slick:


I'm not a programmer though, so I don't know how it differs from the other options, but it sure looks nice.

  • I've looked into chart.js (I am a programmer) and indeed it has some nice features. The only issue with it is that the original developer hasn't been active for a while, so it might be a dead project. Jun 5, 2014 at 23:11
  • @MathewLenning - I checked on Sep/2014 and there are many commits which came in last 60 days.
