Technology and the internet are now ingrained within society. For a vast part of the population, using the internet is a part of their regular routine.

Angular 2 Charts

This morning I started to look at putting some charts on an Angular 2 site. I was expecting to use HighCharts and do something similar to how I integrated with tinymce. I always run a quick search before building something new to see if there’s any libraries/snippets/info on the web that might be useful or teach me a better way to look at the problem.
