We have a client that is in need of some dynamic Flash charts. After some googling I came accross the Open Flash Chart project. It seems to be an active project with a decent following. Moreover, there are a number of other commercial products out there that are using the LGPL licensed code.
It looks to be a fairly mature code base that provides an enormous amount of customization without editing any ActionScript code or recompiling any .swf files. Right now, I’m just struggling with the lack of documentation and it’s just taking a while to figure out the syntax of the php front-end that is provided; through which you can generate the JSON data set that the Open Flash Chart swf reads.
Here are links to the docs and resources that I have found:
- JSON data structure/fields in Open Office
- Open Flash Chart docs pages (which seem mostly incomplete at this time)
- Open Flash Chart forum
