About

Highcharts Editor allows users of your app to make interactive charts without a single line of code. The library is free and open source, but as the editor relies on Highcharts.js, it requires a valid Highcharts license for commercial use. 

Are you primarly a content creator? Highcharts Cloud may be a better fit for you. See comparison below.

Features

Open Source

The editor is licensed under the MIT license, so you’re free to make any changes to it. Note that a Highcharts.js license is required, as the editor depends on Highcharts.js to function.

 Extensible

The editor can be extended or tailored to practically any need. A powerful plugin-system allows for the creation of custom import/export plugins (or more general “do this when the chart changes” plugins), and most of the features can be enabled/disabled as required.

Template library

The editor ships with a rich template library, and supports a vast collection of charts right out of the box.

 

Feature Options

Features can be enabled/disabled as desired and required, and augmenting it with e.g. custom importing modules is a straight-forward process. Furthermore, an advanced property setting mode can be optionally enabled, allow for the modification of practically every option available in the Highcharts API.

Embeddable

The editor was made with integrations in mind from the beginning, and is easy and hassle-free to embed in any 3rd party system.

The editor ships with integrations for TinyMCE, CKEditor, and Wordpress – all ready to drop into your project.

 Licensing

The library is free and open source, but as the editor relies on Highcharts.js, it requires a valid Highcharts license for commercial use. Each Single Developer license includes 5 Content Creators. If you require more Content Creators than the license you own would allow, please get in touch with us here.
