How To Add Charts to SolidJS Using ApexCharts

To integrate ApexCharts into a SolidJS application for creating charts, you'll need to follow these steps:

  1. Step 1: Setup SolidJS Project

    Ensure you have a SolidJS project set up with the necessary configurations.

  2. Step 2: Install ApexCharts

    Use npm or yarn to install ApexCharts and its dependencies:

                        npm install apexcharts
                        # or
                        yarn add apexcharts                    

  3. Step 3: Import ApexCharts in Your Component

    In your SolidJS component where you want to use ApexCharts, import ApexCharts and the required styles:

                        import { createSignal, onCleanup } from 'solid-js';
                        import ApexCharts from 'apexcharts';
                        import 'apexcharts/dist/apexcharts.css'; // Import ApexCharts styles                    

  4. Step 4: Create a Chart Component

    Create a SolidJS component that will render your chart. This component will include a container for the chart and logic to initialize the chart using ApexCharts.

                        const ChartComponent = () => {
                            const [chart, setChart] = createSignal(null);
                            // Function to create the chart
                            const createChart = () => {
                              const chartOptions = {
                                // Define your chart options here (type, data, etc.)
                                chart: {
                                  type: 'line',
                                  // ...other options
                                series: [
                                    name: 'Sample Series',
                                    data: [30, 40, 35, 50, 49, 60, 70, 91, 125], // Sample data
                              const chartElement = document.getElementById('chart-container');
                              if (chartElement) {
                                const newChart = new ApexCharts(chartElement, chartOptions);
                            // Call createChart when the component mounts
                            onCleanup(() => {
                              if (chart()) {
                            createChart(); // Initialize the chart when the component mounts
                            return (
                                <div id="chart-container" style="width: 100%; height: 300px;">
                                {/* Container for the chart */}
                          export default ChartComponent;                      

  5. Step 5: Use the Chart Component

    Finally, use the ChartComponent within your SolidJS application by importing it and including it in your application's structure.

                        import ChartComponent from './ChartComponent';
                        const App = () => {
                          return (
                              {/* Other components */}
                              <ChartComponent />
                        export default App;                    

  • Replace 'line' in chartOptions with the desired chart type ('bar', 'pie', etc.).
  • Adjust the chart options (chartOptions) and sample data to fit your requirements.
  • Customize the chart appearance and behavior by modifying the chart options.

Remember, this is a basic example to get you started with ApexCharts in a SolidJS application. You can explore the ApexCharts documentation for more advanced configurations and customization options for different types of charts.
