Vega-Lite Charts Sub-module

Daniel Cothran

Posted on June 8, 2020

"Vega-Lite is a high-level grammar of interactive graphics. It provides a concise JSON syntax for rapidly generating visualizations to support analysis." - Source:

The Charts module currently has 5 charting libraries (Highcharts, Google Charts, C3, Billboard.js, and Chart.js). Highcharts is extremely powerful, but it has licensing requirements that may not work for every organization. Vega-Lite can produce some amazing charts that may be more appealing to researchers and data-crunchers than what can be produced by many of the other non-Highcharts libraries.

Would love your thoughts on how to move forward!
