FR: chart creating w/o flash and new with javascript

Flash will be reduced more and more in future, so I guess it is a good idea to change from flash to javascript for the charts in the backend.
I'm using Kubuntu and Firefox with gnash, so it is not possible to see the flash charts (other flash things works fine).

My suggestion for a solution: http://www.chartjs.org/
Or - one of the presented in the following articles:
- http://medleyweb.com/web-dev/jquery-chart-and-graph-plugins
- http://butleranalytics.com/10-free-javascript-graphing-libraries/
- http://webdesignledger.com/resources/13-useful-javascript-solutions-for-charts-and-graphs

If I could code this, I would do it. But I'm sorry, I can't. So it would great, if there will be a change away from flash for the charts.

Hello @ednong,

Thanks for your suggestion. I also put my two cents on this idea.

Actually, I was playing around with Highcharts to make stacked columns charts, and we can get somehting pretty similar to our current flash version ( i.e.: http://jsfiddle.net/mgsolipa/x3eyLw5h/ ). Let's see what's the opinion of the developers.

Thank you.

Actually, a new implementation of the flash-based charts is comming on future releases. It is based in the jqPlot library (http://www.jqplot.com/).
