Very interesting stuff! lovely read. Actually gave me a good idea :]
Some of the charts looks even better than those included in latest Microsoft Office by default.
Will try to use smashingmagazine’s offered CSS charts to recreate my wordpress stat counter plugin. I think it will perfectly fit the overall UI.
Adrian thanks for collecting the list!
Have you ever even tried to create your own CSS graph? If you have, you will know how hard it is. Using Flash is one way to go, but you just can’t beat a beautifully crafted CSS Graph. Have a look at these tutorials and techniques.
I invented a new system, that not only uses CSS ONLY, but also uses the SAME human text, rather than building the bars with divs or HRs, which can be microformatted for better SE indexing.
It doesn’t use images, canvas, SVG, divs, JS, nothing. Just the numbers needed for humans and SEs i.e. “38%”
I think it could be even expanded to vertical bars, and endless styles (bar, outline, 10%-markers, etc), with just a font generator to let people style their bars, which could be cached and shared!
Not sure about pie charts, but certainly dots instead of bars could be made too, with a little imagination :)
I’ll appreciate any input.
Also consider YUI3. It’s an awesome js library from Yahoo and it has some really awesome chart building tools
