Highcharts Gantt Features:

  • Customizable
    Being built on the foundation of Highcharts.JS makes the Highcharts Gantt solution a peerless development tool for Gantt applications.

  • Modern
    Don't resort to outdated, proprietary desktop solutions, Java Applets or Flash in order to bring Gantt charting capabilities to your projects. Highcharts Gantt will work in any web browser (including legacy browsers), desktop and mobile, and can also be converted into desktop applications via open source solutions like Electron.
  • Intelligent scaling
    While the Gantt applications of yesteryear may have been designed for a 800x600 desktop experience, today's clients range dramatically in size, shape and interactive interfaces. Highcharts Gantt is designed from ground up to intelligently adapt to various display sizes, supporting both touch, mouse and keyboard interaction. It doesn't just shrink the chart, but intelligently resizes and reorganizes navigation and chart elements based on available screen real-estate.
  • Short learning curve
    Don't get stuck in with a proprietary system, when your developers are already familiar with Highcharts, or at least JavaScript. Highcharts Gantt is based on industry standards: JavaScript, SVG, HTML and CSS, and employs an easy-to-use, yet powerful API. You will be up and running in no time, and adding new members to your team will be a breeze.

    There’s more to Highcharts Gantt than data visualization. End users may re-arrange objects along the timeline, change their duration and order, by simple drag-and-drop actions. The API also allows user-manipulation of the GUI to be written back to the server.
