Usage

import Chart from 'react-apexcharts'

To create a basic bar chart with minimal configuration, write as follows:

class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);

    this.state = {
      options: {
        chart: {
          id: 'apexchart-example'
        },
        xaxis: {
          categories: [1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998]
        }
      },
      series: [{
        name: 'series-1',
        data: [30, 40, 45, 50, 49, 60, 70, 91]
      }]
    }
  }
  render() {
    return (
      <Chart options={this.state.options} series={this.state.series} type="bar" width={500} height={320} />
    )
  }
}

This will render the following chart

How do I update the chart?

Simple! Just change the series or any option and it will automatically re-render the chart.

How to call methods of ApexCharts programatically?

Sometimes, you may want to call other methods of the core ApexCharts library, and you can do so on ApexCharts global variable directly

Example

Apexcharts.exec('reactchart-example', 'updateSeries', [{
  data: [40, 55, 65, 11, 23, 44, 54, 33]
}])

More info on the .exec() method can be found here

All other methods of ApexCharts can be called this way
