SciChart.js 2021 Roadmap and Features Survey

At SciChart we focus on creating the world’s fastest, and best chart components across platforms. Our award-winning software has already been considered the best in class for WPF (Windows) and mobile, and our goal for SciChart.js is exactly the same – to make this the world’s best, most flexible and powerful charting & data-visualization toolkit for JavaScript apps.
