AND NOW, SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

He replied that the most powerful computer is the one you actually (can) use.
Yes, technology is only powerful when it helps you get the job done.
The other contributing factor is the increasing processing power of modern computers and smartphones. This allows much of the application logic to be implemented in the browser. (The fact that “everybody” hates Flash doesn’t hurt either).
It is also worth noting these libraries are open-source and are attracting the best developers in the industry to build and improve upon them, along with a large community to help and troubleshoot issues for newbies.
MAKING CHARTS AND GRAPHS IN REACT, ANGULAR AND METEOR
At Highcharts we believe that good software tools make developers’ lives easier. We’ve therefore found reasons to fall in love with virtually every library out there! When it came to building tighter integrations with these nascent libraries we had to start somewhere.
We are excited to share with you some best practices for combining the power of Highcharts with React, Angular and Meteor. We encourage you to play with these examples, improve upon them and share your best work on GitHub. We will showcase the best solutions on this page for everyone to see and learn.
Without further ado, here are 3 short how-to’s:
