I’ve been using Highcharts for over a year now on numerous projects and realized that a PHP-based wrapper would really make life easier. So, like a few others before me, I went ahead and made one. And today, I released my 1.0 effort as a free, open source project called HighRoller.
HighRoller is licensed by Gravity.com under the Apache 2.0 license and is endorsed by Highcharts. And it makes implementing Highcharts JS much easier.
I also spent time making the project developer friendly (I hope) by giving it a build script and a built-in test site to confirm that a build is working and compatible with jQuery or MooTools.
I am aware that it’s not the only PHP wrapper in the wild but I have reviewed and tried the other offerings and I’m confident that HighRoller may end up being one of the more helpful ones.
It’s been successfully used in my company’s (yet to be released) Zend-based applications and it’s been successfully used in a few other smaller PHP frameworks by some comrades. I think someone actual said “it was a pleasure to use”.
So, if you have some time and this is something you’re curious about, I’d love to hear feedback about HighRoller’s usefulness and usability.
