pChart Looks Promising

Linux — Jeff Eske on July 21, 2011 at 4:24 pm

I’m needing to create some reports for use with our implementation of FrontRange’s ITSM product.  ITSM has reports available via Crystal Reports, but these aren’t dynamic.  To make things dynamic, I decided to create my reports directly out of the MS SQL database, using php.  The one issue was how to easily create charts from the data I pull back.  I’ve done some with GD in the past, but it wasn’t terribly easy and didn’t look that great.  After some investigation, it looks like pChart (http://www.pchart.net/) may be the ticket.  I’ve just started messing with it, so I don’t know how well it will work for sure, but it looks promising.
