Abstract: Developing application using web-technology for cross-platform becomes trend these days. However representing data into a small space is more challenging. Digital convergence has led to a sudden dependence on the mobile devices. The data visualization on mobile devices needs to be in a very pristine manner. To achieve that, unique methods are looked upon that generally involve simple but effective presentation instruments such as tables, charts and graphs. So, the challenge comes in deciding and choosing the right charting library for the hybrid mobile application looking over the cost, functionality, performance, and user experience. This paper has illustrated the challenges faced in implementing line chart in hybrid application using Fusion, HighChart, Rickshaw and D3 chart and will help in deciding the best charting library for the same.
