How to start

There are a lot of vignettes to show how highcharter works and what you can do:

  • vignette("highcharter") explore the basics of the package.
  • vignette("showcase") to see how much highcharts is flexible in terms of customization and design.
  • vignette("highcharts-api") show the main functions to configure charts with the implemented Highcharts API.
  • vignette("highchartsjs-api-basics") explain the relationship between the highchartsJS API and highcharter.


Highcharter has a dependency on Highcharts, a commercial JavaScript charting library. Highcharts offers both a commercial license as well as a free non-commercial license. Please review the licensing options and terms before using this software, as the highcharter license neither provides nor implies a license for Highcharts.
