SciChart® the market leader in Fast WPF Charts, WPF 3D Charts, and iOS Chart & Android Chart Components
We would like to inquire if there have been updates with project “Spaceship” – cross platform chart initiative (https://www.scichart.com/scichart-2017-vision-market-leader-cross-platform-charts/).
We are currently interested in accessing the scichart’s libraries though Web platforms.
We have just started studying the sample code in git (https://github.com/ABTSoftware/SciChart.NativeScript.Examples).
Though the last updates were 2 years ago.
Hoping for your response.
Why hello there 🙂
I almost forgot about the codename project Space-Ship. What a cool name!
The answer is, some of this stuff is trade secret and some is in the public domain already. What is in the public domain so far.
As of today, January 2019
Planned for the very near future: March 2019
We have announced that we are developing 3D Charts for iOS/Android late last year.
This work is in progress now, and looking pretty good. We have a lot of our 3D charts ported over to ios, android using a common, shared C++ rendering engine (shared with WPF). Our charts will support OpenGLES 2,3 on Android and Metal as well as OpenGLES on iOS. SciChart iOS 2D is also receiv
We have postponed Mac OSX charts for now but intend to pick it up as soon as ios/android 3d is ready. Mac will be 95% shared code with iOS (only the mouse events need to be changed from touch, and some UIKit small things like labels).
Planned for later in 2019
You mentioned web charts. In the past we have said to people that we are not going to develop web charts. The reason is we don’t have an edge over existing chart components. However, with the advent of WebAssembly it is now possible to draw high performance graphics in the browser.
We don’t have anything to show just yet, but we have started prototyping work to get our charting engine into web assembly. Once we have some results, we will share them.
Regarding NativeScript and ReactNative
We are not actively developing wrappers for ReactNative and NativeScript at this time, as they are out of our skill remit, however, we have customers report success using SciChart iOS/Android in ReactNative and one or two in NativeScript. Unfortunately we don’t have wrappers to share but we have heard it is possible.
I hope that helps! If you have any more questions, let me know.
