Graphing - best approach? (Google Chart API, Flash, RMagick...?)

Hi,
I want to include some graphs in my RoR application. Any recommendation
re
where I should jump. I’ve already gone through an RMagick installation
for
other purposes. Want it to be relatively straight forward, but also
want
the graphs to have a high level of finishing.

Possible options?

What approach do you recommend for a RoR developer?

Tks

I would like to give my vote up for the Google charts API. It’s pretty
simple and it’s really fast. I use it for this site:

  • Flash based approach perhaps:

I just used the open-flash-chart for some work. It went pretty well.
The
library is a little confusing to use at first… seems a pretty straight
port of the PHP library, not as “ruby-ish”, but it did what I needed it
to
do and looks nice.

Didn’t look at google’s charting as it wasn’t an option for business
reasons…

I thought I’d read some where that gruff wasn’t being updated. Maybe
that
was scruffy though. I don’t really remember…

same idea…I used Ziya but again, I’m not sure that it’s being
developed any further but it didn’t seem to matter…it works really
well.

just found a rails plugin for the Goggle API.

Anyone used it? Looks good.

I personally like Gruff, then Google Chart API … in that order. If
you already have RMagick then I’d go with Gruff. My two cents.
