Yet More Attractive Graphs: Open Flash Chart Library Ported For Use With Rails

In Elsewhere, Miscellaneous


Open Flash Chart is an open source Flash charting tool that can produce a wide range of attractive graphs and charts. Developer Charlie Snider has announced that he has ported the code to Ruby, primarily for use with Rails. He has provided a large number of demonstrations with example code. The library is LGPL (or MIT - it's optional) licensed, and the Ruby bindings are now available in the main .zip download of the library.
