HumbleFinance: Dynamic Charts with HTML5, Canvas, and Flotr for Prototype

Friday, 12 March 2010


HumbleFinance is an HTML5 data visualization tool written as a demonstration of interactive graphing in HTML5. It is similar to the Flash tool on The tool itself is written entirely in JavaScript, using the Prototype and Flotr libraries. It can be used to display any two 2-D data sets of real numerical data which share an axis.

Between this and gRaphaƫl I'd say there's a lot of potential for open technologies to be a real, viable alternative to Flash based charts very soon.
