Highcharts-Rails

This gem just includes Highcharts as an asset in the Rails 3.1 (or newer) asset pipeline. Highcharts is not free for commercial use, so make sure you have a valid license to use Highcharts.

If you are looking to include Highstock, Justin Kuepper has made highstock-rails, so check it out.

Installation

Add the gem to the Gemfile

gem "highcharts-rails"
# The gem version mirrors the included version of Highcharts

Changes

We have a tiny changelog for this gem, but since it's just a tiny wrapper gem, refer to the Highcharts changelog for the important things.

Usage

In your JavaScript manifest (e.g. application.js)

//= require highcharts
// to get the new features in 2.3.0:
//= require highcharts/highcharts-more

Including the modules you want and need

//= require highcharts/modules/annotations
//= require highcharts/modules/data
//= require highcharts/modules/drilldown
//= require highcharts/modules/exporting
//= require highcharts/modules/funnel
//= require highcharts/modules/heatmap
//= require highcharts/modules/no-data-to-display
//= require highcharts/modules/offline-exporting

Or one of the themes

//= require highcharts/themes/dark-blue
//= require highcharts/themes/dark-green
//= require highcharts/themes/gray
//= require highcharts/themes/grid
//= require highcharts/themes/skies

Some of the modules are meant to be loaded by Highcharts on-demand, such as canvas-tools (https://github.com/highcharts/highcharts/issues/2311#issuecomment-25685317), so don't require them on your own.

Other than that, refer to the Highcharts documentation

Licensing

Highcharts, which makes up the majority of this gem, has its own, separate licensing.
