Just download and place the mimaCharts.js library right before the closing body tag and we’re ready to go.

JS

Prepare an array of data you want to present and Specify the chart type you want to use.

mimaChart({
    type: "donut",
    data: [{
        l: "slice", // "l" label
        v: 10, // "v" value
    }]
});




You can use following configuration to customize the chart

type: 'line', // options are line, bar, pie, donut, dial. Default is donut
ratio: '', // force an aspect ratio for the chart. defaults to 2:1
maxHeight: 'none', // set a maximum height for the chart. defaults to none, obeys aspect ratio
format: '', // display values as regular numbers (blank), % or $
scale: {
    lowest: 0, // set the lowest value on the scale, default is zero, set to "auto" to be automatic
    highest: 100, // set the highest value on the scale, leave undefined for automatic
    steps: 10, // number of steps in the scale
    roundTo: 100, // round the scale to
    defaultLabel: '', // if no label or a blank label is provided use this default label instead
    sort: true, // sort by highest value set to "false" to use your own provided sorted order,
    types: ['bar', 'pie', 'donut', 'line'], // allowed chart types for the viewer to switch between. default is all
    parentLabels: true, // when hovering a point automatically add the parent names to the label
    parentLabelsSeparator: ', ', // sets the string that is used between labels for creating parent labels
},
sort: function(a, b){}, // custom sort function to use or a string to use a function in window
onclick: function(event, dataPoint, chart) {}, // define the custom click handler for when a data point is clicked,
onchange: function(changeType, config, chart) {}, // execute this function whenever a chart's config is changed
dataLevel: 2 // for line and bar charts, what level of data do you want to stop rendering at?
