Britecharts components have been written in ES2016 with a Test Driven methodology, so they are fully tested, and we are committed to keeping them that way.

Key Features

  • Reusability
  • Composability
  • Great design


The typical use of Britecharts involves creating a chart using its simple API, then rendering it on a container which has previously had data applied to it. The code will look like this:




All the components expose some common API methods like width, height, and margin. Additionally, each chart or component can expose specific methods you can find in the documentation:


Britecharts components are distributed in UMD modules, each one exposing a D3.js component written with the Reusable API pattern. To use any of the Britecharts modules, you will need to require the chart in your JS file using AMD/CommonJS modules or adding a script tag with the src pointing to the file. You would also need to load the d3-selection submodule to select the chart container.

   npm install britecharts d3-selection

You can also load Britecharts from our CDN as we do in this demo page or play around in our JSBin and CodePen demo projects.

They also provide some minimal CSS styling, that can be loaded independently or as a bundle. Check our Getting Started Guide to see more options.

This project is in active development. You can check our plans for the next release to see what's coming, and vote for your favorite proposals on the issues page.

To give your feedback, you can open a new issue. You can also find us in the D3.js slack group, in the #britecharts channel. If you want to help, you can check the contributing guide.

If you work with Angular, check out ngx-britecharts and their demos. We are also preparing a wrapper for React, and we will be talking about it on our twitter.


Sun Dai designs Britecharts, and two books inspired the code, Developing a D3.js Edge and Mastering D3.js. It also leveraged a significant number of examples and articles from the D3.js community overall.
