Currently, as it stands, flot is not compatible with the strict modes of the new HTML5 Content Security Policy.

CSP is designed to impose strict restrictions on the scope of damage that can be done in the event of XSS and various other content injections. The full spec can be found here:

As it's currently implemented, flot requires unsafe-inline styles due to the recurring uses of style="..." throughout the javascript. This can either be resolved through issue 748 or by using javascript to apply the styles directly.

If the enhancement detailed in issue 748 is not desired I will write the patches required for CSP compliance using only javascript.

This would also be addressed by Issue 519, which could be considered an opposite of issue 748, and possibly more preferable.

Accepted, but classifying as an enhancement, since this is currently far from required. May merge into issue 748 as necessary.


Sorry about the delay here, somewhere in the migration from to github I lost track of this issue, and didn't remember it's existence until I was about to file this bug all over again with a pull request.

I've refactored bits of insertLegend() & drawLabel() to use jQuery to construct the legend, rather than using "style=" which isn't valid in some strict CSP rulesets.

Everything pertaining to the core jQuery was fixed in 1.8.0 ( ), and excanvas doesn't require fixing since there is currently no browser that doesn't support canvas but does support CSP.

I'll attach a pull request to this bug shortly, I just want to finish testing for edge cases breaking first.
