amCharts 5 Beta is available now!

amCharts 5 Beta

Regardless of which version of amCharts library you are currently using, we have an update for you: amCharts 5 Beta is available for immediate use now.

amCharts 5 is a natural successor to previous versions, and is better in a lot of ways:

Blindingly fast

amCharts 5 uses canvas technology to deliver crisp charts, quickly. It also uses lightweight data objects, to minimize memory footprint and save on processing time. Animations are silky smooth, delivered at tens of frames per second.

Super light-weight

For JavaScript users the core binary package is just around 400K.

TypeScript and framework developers will appreciate how well tree-shaking works.


amCharts 5 is the best data-viz library for dashboards, since they initialize very quickly.

Having a lot of charts in your dashboard will not bog down the browser anymore.

New chart types

We’ve added new chart types, too.

Pack, Tree, Partition, and full-fledged drillable Sunburst Diagram among others.
