Learn how to use Chart.js, a popular JavaScript library for visualizing data, in your next React project with a bar chart example.

Data visualization has always been an important part of software engineering and frontend development in particular. There’s always a need to visualize data for our users to help them better understand what is going on in our application.

Chart.js is a popular JavaScript library used for creating flexible charts on websites, and in this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use Chart.js in a React environment.

Rather than doing something straightforward like displaying a chart with makeshift data, we’re going to create an application that pulls cryptocurrency prices from an API and displays it in a bar chart.

CoinCap’s API provides us with real-time cryptocurrency prices, which we’ll feed to our React component.

Prerequisites

For this tutorial, you’ll need a basic understanding of the React framework. React’s documentation is a good place to start.
