What a chart template is

  • chart template = set of live customized charts, each with a different type or built with a different application, with similar appearance, behavior or presentation.
  • live = online, usually interactive and animated, built on-the-fly with user's options.
  • appearance = visual style, with cosmetic elements, such as colors, fonts, shadows, borders etc.
  • behavior = dynamic interaction and animation, chart rendering.
  • presentation = multiple views, with or without legend, title, axes etc.

What a palette template is

  • palette template = set of live customized charts, of a special "palette" type, to represent in a visually appealing manner a set of internal or custom colors, patterns or external images used by a chart.
  • color palette = internal or custom set of colors used by a chart. Charts will usually automatically represent the first series with the first palette color, the second series with the second palette color and so on. If there are more series than colors, we restart with the first palette color.
  • pattern palette = internal or custom set of pattern fills used by a chart.
  • image palette = internal or custom set of external images used by a chart.

What you can do with a premium template

  • get full access rights to the source code of any chart within the template.
  • create a huge number of views, with generated code, by toggling sidebar switches.
  • get an archived file with all these charts.
  • customize the source code of any chart in a playground such as jsFiddle or CodePen.
  • get inspired from any chart's look and the source code, to create your own charts.
  • further customize these charts, plug your own data and publish them where you wish.
  • embed any chart into your own HTML pages or blog posts.

What you can NOT do with a premium template

  • share a chart source code, modified or as it is, with other people, outside your organization.
  • publish a chart source code, even modified, on a website (but we always appreciate a backlink).
  • divulge, share or publish algorithms and hacks specifically found only on our website.
  • claim ownership for any chart's code, as paid templates are resources shared with other customers.
  • our Terms of Service page may contain even more info, please check it out

Check before you buy

  • walk through the related templates (for the same chart app), or similar templates (for other products).
  • play with the sidebar switches, to get a huge variety of views for any chart.
  • check third-party licensing, if you may need a commercial license for some chart apps.
  • we cannot refund a purchase: in rare cases, we could only credit the user with the paid amount.
  • never buy a template to later expose in public the source code you gain access to.
  • be aware these charts may change, as we continuously improve their look and generated code.

Why is the site slow

  • we pay a price for using live charts, with heavy client-side processing.
  • every different JavaScript product loads its own heavy scripts.
  • each chart is rendered in a separate frame.
  • most template pages are built on the fly with user-specific options, so they are hard to cache.
  • please refresh browser's page if you don't see all charts properly rendered.
