Chart.js Tutorial

Chart.js, a popular open-source data visualization framework, enables us to generate the Scatter Plot, Line Chart, Bar Chart, Pie Chart, Donut Chart, Bubble Chart, Area Chart, Radar Chart, Mixed Chart, etc. Chart.js is a community-maintained free JavaScript library for making HTML-based charts.

While working with Chart.js, the user just needs to indicate where on page he wants the graph to be displayed and what sort of graph he wants. Once done with that, the user needs to supply Chart.js with data, labels, and some other settings. Rest of the things will be managed by library itself.
