  • Since v4.0

    # if you use npm 
    npm install echarts -S
    npm install ngx-echarts -S
    npm install @types/echarts -D
    # or if you use yarn 
    yarn add echarts
    yarn add ngx-echarts
    yarn add @types/echarts -D
  • If you need ECharts GL support, please install it first:

    npm install echarts-gl -S
    # or 
    yarn add echarts-gl
  • tsconfig.json: You need to map the echarts path to minified version of echarts in the compilerOptions of "tsconfig.json" in your project's root (this is important for AoT build):

      "compilerOptions": {
    +    "paths": {
    +      "echarts": ["node_modules/echarts/dist/echarts.min.js"]
    +    }
  • If you also installed ECharts GL:

      "compilerOptions": {
        "paths": {
           "echarts": ["node_modules/echarts/dist/echarts.min.js"],
    +      "echarts-gl": ["node_modules/echarts-gl/dist/echarts-gl.min.js"]
  • Import other extentions such as themes or echarts-gl in your main.ts: ECharts Extensions

Upgrade from v3.x

  1. Remove ECharts related files from scripts in angular.json, including lib, theme and extension files.
  2. Modify tsconfig.json according to the installation guidance above.
  3. Import necessary theme or extension files in main.ts. Refer to ECharts Extensions.


Please refer to the demo page.

  1. Firstly, import NgxEchartsModule in your app module (or any other proper angular module):

    import { NgxEchartsModule } from 'ngx-echarts';
      imports: [
    export class AppModule { }
  2. Then: use echarts directive in a div which has pre-defined height. (From v2.0, it has default height: 400px)

    • Simple example:

      • html:
      <div echarts [options]="chartOption" class="demo-chart"></div>
      • scss:
      .demo-chart {
        height: 400px;
      • component:
      import { EChartOption } from 'echarts';
      // ...
      chartOptionEChartOption = {
        xAxis: {
          type: 'category',
          data: ['Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed', 'Thu', 'Fri', 'Sat', 'Sun']
        yAxis: {
          type: 'value'
        series: [{
          data: [820, 932, 901, 934, 1290, 1330, 1320],
          type: 'line'



echarts directive support following input porperties:

Input Type Default Description
[options] object null It's the same with the options in official demo site.
[merge] object null You can use it to update part of the options, especially helpful when you need to update the chart data. In fact, the value of merge will be used in echartsInstance.setOption() with notMerge = false. So you can refer to ECharts documentation for details
[loading] boolean false Use it to toggle the echarts loading animation when your data is not ready.
[autoResize] boolean true Charts will be automatically resized when container's width changed.
[initOpts] object null The value of [initOpts] will be used in echarts.init(). It may contain devicePixelRatio, renderer, width or height properties. Refer to ECharts documentation for details
[theme] string null Use it to init echarts with theme. You need to import the theme file in main.ts.
[loadingOpts] object null Input an object to customize loading style. Refer to ECharts documentation for details.
[detectEventChanges] boolean true Whether to register mouse event handlers on echartInstance. Use it to avoid unwanted change detections.

By default, loadingOpts is:

  text: 'loading',
  color: '#c23531',
  textColor: '#000',
  maskColor: 'rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.8)',
  zlevel: 0

ECharts API

If you need echarts API such as echarts.graphic, please import it from echarts. For example:

/** import all */
import * as echarts from 'echarts';
new echarts.graphic.LinearGradient(/** ... */);
/** or you can */
import { graphic } from 'echarts';
new graphic.LinearGradient(/** ... */);

ECharts Instance

echartsInstance is exposed (since v1.1.6) in (chartInit) event. So you can directly call the APIs just like: resize(), showLoading(), etc. For example:

  • html:
<div echarts class="demo-chart" [options]="chartOptions" (chartInit)="onChartInit($event)"></div>
  • component:
onChartInit(ec) {
  this.echartsIntance = ec;
resizeChart() {
  if (this.echartsIntance) {

ECharts Extensions

Import echarts theme files or other extension files in main.ts. For example:

import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { AppModule } from './app/app.module';
import { environment } from './environments/environment';
/** echarts extensions: */
import 'echarts-gl';
import 'echarts/theme/macarons.js';
import 'echarts/dist/extension/bmap.min.js';
if (environment.production) {
  .catch(err => console.log(err));


NgxEchartsService has been obsoleted since v4.0


As echarts support the 'click', 'dblclick', 'mousedown', 'mouseup', 'mouseover', 'mouseout', 'globalout' mouse events, our ngx-echarts directive also support the same mouse events but with additional chart prefix.

  • html:
<div echarts class="demo-chart" [options]="chartOptions" (chartClick)="onChartClick($event)"></div>
  • The '$event' is same with the 'params' that Echarts dispatches

It supports following event outputs:

  • chartClick: It emits the same params of 'click' event
  • chartDblClick: It emits the same params of 'dblclick' event
  • chartMouseDown: It emits the same params of 'mousedown' event
  • chartMouseUp: It emits the same params of 'mouseup' event
  • chartMouseOver: It emits the same params of 'mouseover' event
  • chartMouseOut: It emits the same params of 'mouseout' event
  • chartGlobalOut: It emits the same params of 'globalout' event
  • chartContextMenu: It emits the same params of 'contextmenu' event (since v1.2.1)
  • chartDataZoom: It emits the same params of 'dataZoom' event (thanks to averhaegen)
  • chartMapSelectChanged: It emits the same params of 'mapselectchanged' event (thanks to amirch1)
  • chartMapSelected: It emits the same params of 'mapselected' event (thanks to amirch1)
  • chartMapUnselected: It emits the same params of 'mapunselected' event (thanks to amirch1)

You can refer to the echarts tutorial: Events and Actions in ECharts for more details of the event params. You can also refer to the demo page for the detailed example.
