Chapter 1. Getting Started

As we begin this journey, we will look at the advantages of jqPlot over other web-based charting tools. We will look at the basic options available to us in jqPlot as we hit the ground running and create charts based on our company's data. In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Learn the different ways of creating a chart in jqPlot
  • Create arrays that contain values for our x and y axes and pass these into jqPlot
  • Use a plugin that allows us to use dates for our x axis
