Maybe you can use python with plotly to render the charts? I know plotly has way more resources for plotting charts

Even though it is not javascript, I think it shouldn't be hard to make python and javascript work together

I'll give it a shot if I cant't find something that works out of the box. This is because the website is already built in PHP with CakePHP and I don't want to make the backend too sophisticated.

I had a great problem doing charts in javascript too. The Chart.js didn't do what I wanted out of the box. Had to make a lot of changes in it, which ended in a pretty big and messy code
