    Graphing in PHP

    I have found the following graphing/charting utilities for PHP but was hoping you may know of others.

    JpGraph
    Pros: Powerful and has everyone's praises
    Cons: Ugly and pricey (137 USD)

    PHP/SQF Charts
    Pros: Beautiful, interactive and cheap (35 USD)
    Cons: Flash charts don't seem to print in Mozilla browsers

    EasyCharts
    Pros: Pretty and powerful
    Cons: Expensive! (950 USD)

    PHP Turbine
    Pros: Interactive
    Cons: Expensive (745 USD), ugly for a Flash chart, and Flash charts don't seem to print in Mozilla browsers

    I'm looking for the holy grail of cheap, gorgeous, powerful and multiplatform support, but I'm sure I will have to compromise.

    Does anyone know of any other/better ones?

    JpGraph isn't ugly - it can make some pretty slick graphs. It's free too - I wouldn't pay for the pro version - I don't need barcodes or odometers/tachometers.

    Unfortunately it's not in my case:

    JpGraph is released under a dual license.
    QPL 1.0 (Qt Free Licensee) For non-commercial, open-source and educational use and JpGraph Professional License for commercial use.
    Basically it means that if you or your company develops non open source software and have financial gains, by using JpGraph this is considered commercial use.

    I found another Flash utility: FusionCharts

    I guess you have to right-click on Flash charts to print them.

    The FusionCharts look impressive. The licensing is quite generous as well, allowing unlimited sites per developer license !

    phplot is another one. It is free.
    It creates real-time chart, such as line chart ,bar chart,pie chart...

    it is fairly easy use. Highly recommend it.
