This release of Chart.js adds horizontal bars (big thanks to @potatopeelings) and the ability to create plugins that fit into the lifecycle of a chart.

New Features

  • Horizontal Bars!! Thanks to @potatopeelings
  • You can now share data between charts. Thanks to @simonbrunel! Note that this will require changes if dataset.metadata or dataset.metaDataset were being used. There is now a helper function to retrieve the correct meta data for a given dataset
  • Doughnut and Pie charts no longer need to fill the entire circle. Thanks @mdehoog
  • Plugins! You can now create plugins that fit into the chart lifecycle. See docs
