How to install

  1. Create a package.json which includes react, react-dom, and @amcharts/amcharts3-react:

    {
      "devDependencies": {
        "react": "^16.0.0",
        "react-dom": "^16.0.0",
        "@amcharts/amcharts3-react": "^3.0.0"
      }
    }
  2. Run npm install

  3. Use <script> tags in your HTML file to load AmCharts:

    <script src="https://www.amcharts.com/lib/3/amcharts.js"></script>
    <script src="https://www.amcharts.com/lib/3/serial.js"></script>
    <script src="https://www.amcharts.com/lib/3/themes/light.js"></script>
  4. If you are using <script> tags, include the React and amcharts3-react.js files in your HTML:

    <script src="node_modules/react/dist/react.min.js"></script>
    <script src="node_modules/react-dom/dist/react-dom.min.js"></script>
    <script src="node_modules/@amcharts/amcharts3-react/amcharts3-react.js"></script>

    If you are using a bundler (like Webpack), import the @amcharts/amcharts3-react plugin:

    var AmCharts = require("@amcharts/amcharts3-react");

How to use

React.createElement(AmCharts.React, {
  className: "my-class",
  style: {
    width: "100%",
    height: "500px"
  },
  options: {
    "type": "serial",
    "theme": "light",
    "graphs": [...],
    "dataProvider": [...]
  }
})

Or alternatively if you are using JSX:

<AmCharts.React
  className="my-class"
  style={{
    width: "100%",
    height: "500px"
  }}
  options={{
    "type": "serial",
    "theme": "light",
    "graphs": [...],
    "dataProvider": [...]
  }} />

You can also define the options object separately:

var config = {
  "type": "serial",
  "theme": "light",
  "graphs": [...],
  "dataProvider": [...]
};

<AmCharts.React options={config} />

The options property supports exactly the same configuration as the AmCharts.makeChart method, so all of the AmCharts demos work the same.

Changes to options are automatically detected when rendering (you do not need to call validateNow or validateData).

In addition, this plugin automatically generates an id, so you do not need to specify it.

You can find some examples in the examples folder.


If you want to use plugins (like dataloader, export, responsive, animate, etc.) you will need to include the appropriate <script> tags.

Here is an example for the export plugin:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://www.amcharts.com/lib/3/plugins/export/export.css" type="text/css" media="all" />

<script src="https://www.amcharts.com/lib/3/plugins/export/export.min.js"></script>

You can see an example program in the examples/webpack-export folder. It updates the chart's dataProvider every 3 seconds.
