What is Swiff Chart Generator?

Swiff Chart Generator is a web server component that generates charts and graphs in svg or image format from your ASP.NET and ASP pages, your PHP/JSP scripts and command line.

Swiff Chart Generator works in conjunction with Swiff Chart, the desktop chart authoring tool that enables you to create custom chart templates for use in your server-side scripts.


No more static charts and complex image manipulation or spreadsheet programs: Swiff Chart Generator allows you to dynamically create high-impact charts and graphs in svg or image format. Directly from your ASP.NET/ASP/PHP/JSP script, instanciate a new chart object, populate the chart with custom data values and format the chart with a chart template created with the Swiff Chart desktop editor. Once the data are loaded, Swiff Chart Generator interprets these data and return their representation as a svg or a standard image to be viewed in the Web Browser.

Versatile and Flexible

Swiff Chart Generator works on both Windows and Unix platforms. Swiff Chart Generator runs with Internet Information Server 4.0 or higher, Apache Web Server for Windows and Unix and J2EE Web Application Servers to serve dynamic animated charts and graphs right from your server scripts. Use PHP or JSP as well as all the programming languages supported by ASP.NET (and ASP) , like C# and Visual Basic, to access any data source and generate dynamic content for your web site application. Swiff Chart Generator can finally be invoked in command line for batch processing.


Swiff Chart Generator is even more powerful when the information you feed it are dynamic. You can query data from any database (such as MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, etc.) and submit them to Swiff Chart Generator to instantly generate an eye-catching animated graph. This means that you can display up-to-date information all the time. All you need to do is manage your database, and Swiff Chart Generator will take care of the rest.
