I was looking for some good flash charts to use and found one that is free, customizable, sleek, and works with PHP! Open Flash Charts are great even though the examples on their site don’t do it total justice. With a couple customization options you can make your own flash charts look really close to Google Analytics flash charts. Now, I’m not saying they’re both the same, because they’re not. But Open Flash Charts are pretty close. They also have an active community so they are always adding new features and graphs. They also support not only PHP, but ASP, Ruby, Python, etc.
To install, just download the files and upload them somewhere where your website pages can include them. The only hard part of the installation is just figuring out the right path name to include the file open flash chart file.
