Graphing in PHP

2008 May 20

Recently I have been attempting to build graphs in PHP. I was shocked by the lack of Object-Oriented classes to handle this. It just seems that dynamic graphing is a pretty common need, yet not much in the way of open source solutions.

I have settled for a nifty flash solution called Open Fash Chart .

The animations are smooth and will work, I just dislike loading sites with cumbersome applets that require plugins. I am still looking for an all server side / javascript solution.

    Hi Eddie, it’s Kevin from RIT. Check out ChartDirector ( and jpgraph (

    I used ChartDirector this summer, which appears to have more features than JPGraph. The free version of ChartDirector will add a little message at the bottom of your charts, but is fully functional.
