FLCharts is an easy-to-use library to build highly customizable bar, line and pie charts. It allows you to create your own chart bar UIView and use it to display data in the chart. Additionally FLCharts allows you to provide a custom HighlightedView to show the highlighted bar contents on top of the chart. Embed effortlessly your chart in a FLCard alogside with a title, an average vlue view and additional behaviours.

Here you can find a guide about how to setup a bar chart using FLCharts: https://medium.com/@leonifrancesco/set-up-a-basic-bar-chart-using-flcharts-swift-d2f615a10d0b


  • Animations for chart bars
  • Customizable Axes (both x and y axis)
  • Dragging / Panning (with touch-gesture)
  • Highlighting values (with customizable popup-views)
  • Create custom cards with embedded chart and more features
  • Scroll through chart while highlighted to change highlighted bar
  • Fully customizable (bar colors, axes color, background, average value, dashed lines, ...)


FLChart is highly customizable. You can choose which property to modify through the .config property.

let axisLabelConfig = FLAxisLabelConfig(color: .black,
                                        font: .preferredFont(forTextStyle: .body))

chart.config = ChartConfig(axesLabels: axisLabelConfig)

Prebuilt bar cells

  • FLPlainChartBar
  • FLMultipleValuesChartBar
  • FLHorizontalMultipleValuesChartBar

Use this bars when you configure your chart.

Eg. FLChart(data: ..., type: .bar(bar: FLMultipleValuesChartBar.self))


You can build FLCharts documentation directly in XCode. In XCode go to Product -> Build Documentation, once XCode has finished building, the documentation will appear.
