πŸ“Š React Component for ApexCharts


License build ver

React.js wrapper for ApexCharts to build interactive visualizations in react.

Download and Installation

Installing via npm
npm install react-apexcharts apexcharts


import Chart from 'react-apexcharts'

To create a basic bar chart with minimal configuration, write as follows:

class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {

    this.state = {
      options: {
        chart: {
          id: 'apexchart-example'
        xaxis: {
          categories: [1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999]
      series: [{
        name: 'series-1',
        data: [30, 40, 35, 50, 49, 60, 70, 91, 125]
  render() {
    return (
      <Chart options={this.state.options} series={this.state.series} type="bar" width={500} height={320} />

This will render the following chart

How do I update the chart?

Simple! Just change the series or any option and it will automatically re-render the chart.

View this example on codesandbox

Important: While updating the options, make sure to update the outermost property even when you need to update the nested property.

βœ… Do this

  options: {
    xaxis: {
      categories: ['X1', 'X2', 'X3']

❌ Not this

  options.xaxis.categories: ['X1', 'X2', 'X3']

How to call methods of ApexCharts programmatically?

Sometimes, you may want to call other methods of the core ApexCharts library, and you can do so on ApexCharts global variable directly


ApexCharts.exec('reactchart-example', 'updateSeries', [{
  data: [40, 55, 65, 11, 23, 44, 54, 33]

More info on the .exec() method can be found here

All other methods of ApexCharts can be called this way
