Create An Animated Bar Graph With HTML, CSS And jQuery

Graphs of financial projections, quarterly sales figures and market saturation are a middle-manager’s dream.How can we as Web designers get in on all of this hot graph action? There are actually quite a few ways to display graphs on the Web. We could simply create an image and nail it to a Web page. But that’s not very accessible or interesting. We could use Flash, which is quite good for displaying graphs — but again, not very accessible. Besides, designers, developers and deities are falling out of love with Flash. Technologies such as HTML5 can do many of the same things without the need for a plug-in. The new HTML5 <canvas> element could even be adapted to the task. Plenty of charting tools are online that we might use.
