Producing reports can become tedious, quickly. This is especially true when you need to create, embed, and organize charts. If you want interactive charts, you need coding knowledge and all of this takes time. Chartspree helps to eliminate some of this frustration. It allows you to create charts with no Javascript required.

To use Chartspree, simply modify a URL to alter your chosen variables. You can create three types of charts with east: pies, bars, and lines. For example, to create a pie chart just use the following URL, changing the numbers to reflect your own statistics: api.chartspree.com/pie.svg?Fun=5&Worry=2

There is a URL for each type of chart which can easily be tweaked and customized to your liking. You can choose from two different styles: light or dark. Chartspree also gives you the option to append the parameters of data. You can choose a list of values, multiple data sets, and add labels to the axis of your line charts. Customize your line chars with fill and hover effects.

These options may seem a little complicated at first, if you are unfamiliar with them, but if you spend a little time with them, you will be able to see the effects of each tweak easily because the charts are, of course, highly visual.

Additional Chartspree features

They also offer Lorem Ipsum charts. If you are prototyping and need placeholder charts; instead of providing numbers, you can use of Chartspree’s keywords. There are keywords to keep your values growing, form a hockey stick, follow a bell curve, and lay flat. Again, since each keyword has its own individual URL, you can easily see which option you like best by applying the keyword.

Chartspree is made by the same people that created Brace.io (website hosting). It is definitely a more effective way to create charts, quickly, with no coding knowledge required. It is free for up to 10,000 views per chart per month.
