Moochart from MooTools (A Compact Javascript Framework)

Moochart is a plugin for MooTools, which is a JavaScript framework that is suitable for intermediate to advanced level JavaScript developers. The framework is modular and compact and has an excellent API. Moochart allows users to draw bubble diagrams on the canvas tag, and some of its main features are as follows:

  • As this is a JavaScript charting engine, Moochart operates on Internet Explorer, Safari 2 or later, Firefox 2 or later, Adobe AIR 1.0 or later, and Opera 9 or later.
  • Moochart is very easy to use and has relatively simple source code.
  • The bubble charts created using Moochart are three dimensional. The third dimension is represented by bubbles of lighter or darker intensity, indicating distance along the z-axis.
  • Moochart is easily customisable and can be configured using simple commands.

This is an open source application, which can be downloaded for free at http://moochart.coneri.se/ . Don’t forget that you will need to get MooTools in order to operate Moochart, although this is in fact an added bonus. MooTools is widely used by many major websites, for example by such sites as Vimeo, Ferrari.com and bing.
