I like Facette a lot. I have spent a lot of time installing it and configuring all the charts. After that, I discovered that Facette uses proprietary software, the Highchart library, which costs $150 per domain. Don't you think that users should be aware of that before the installation?

Hi @roman-io,

You are right. We will have to let user know that Highcharts is not open-source and licensed under the terms of CC BY-NC 3.0 for personal and non-profit usage. Sorry for the lack of information.

For the record, the next major release being developed right now has dropped Highcharts for D3.
