Chart2 is a very simple chart plugin built on top of jQuery, jQuery UI and Html5 canvas to draw a line chart & graph by loading data from Javascript array objects.

Basic Usage:

1. Load the required jQuery library and jQuery UI in the Html document.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.4/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

2. Make sure to load the jQuery chart2 plugin after jQuery library.

<script src="jquery.chart2.js"></script>

3. Create a container element you want to render a line chart within it.

<div id="chart">

</div>

4. Create a dataset for the line chart following the data format like this.

var datas = [
{
style: {stroke: 'green', fill: '#fff'},
values: [
{ x: 'starting_point', y: 2},
{ x: 'Befor breakfast', y: 3 },
{ x: 'After Beakfast', y: 203 },
{ x: 'Before Lunch', y: 248 },
{ x: 'After Lunch', y: 308},
{ x: 'Afternoo', y: 234},
]
},
{
style: {stroke: 'red', fill: '#fff'},   
values: [
{ x: 'starting_point', y: 34},
{ x: 'Befor breakfast', y: 3},
{ x: 'After Beakfast', y: 190},
{ x: 'Before Lunch', y: 148},
{ x: 'After Lunch', y: 208},
{ x: 'Afternoo', y: 234},
]
},
{
style: {stroke: 'yellow', fill: '#fff'},   
values: [
{ x: 'starting_point', y: 45},
{ x: 'Befor breakfast', y: 33},
{ x: 'After Beakfast', y: 123},
{ x: 'Before Lunch', y: 48},
{ x: 'After Lunch', y: 38},
{ x: 'Afternoo', y: 44},
]
}
];

5. Initialize the line chart by calling the function on the empty container element.

$('#chart').chart2({
data: datas
});

6. Available options.

$('#chart').chart2({
xPadding: 30,
yPadding: 30,
chartHeight: 400,
chartWidth: 800,
data: [],
renderPoints: true
});
