Create a Bar chart using Recharts in ReactJS

  • Last Updated : 27 Jul, 2021

Introduction: Rechart JS is a library that is used for creating charts for React JS. This library is used for building Line charts, Bar charts, Pie charts, etc, with the help of React and D3 (Data-Driven Documents).  

To create Bar Chart using Recharts, we create a dataset with x and y coordinate details. Then we define the bars using bar element with dataKey property which will have the data of the dataset created and then we create a cartesian grid and both axes using data coordinates.

Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof. But before you tackle the big projects, we suggest you start by learning the basics. Kickstart your web development journey by learning JS concepts with our JavaScript Course.

Creating React Application And Installing Module:

  • Step 1: Create a React application using the following command.

    npx create-react-app foldername
  • Step 2: After creating your project folder i.e. foldername, move to it using the following command.

    cd foldername
  • Step 3: After creating the ReactJS application, Install the required modules using the following command.

    npm install --save recharts

Project Structure: It will look like the following.

Example: Now write down the following code in the App.js file. Here, App is our default component where we have written our code.


import React from 'react';
import { BarChart, Bar, CartesianGrid, XAxis, YAxis } from 'recharts';
const App = () => {
// Sample data
const data = [
  {name: 'Geeksforgeeks', students: 400},
  {name: 'Technical scripter', students: 700},
  {name: 'Geek-i-knack', students: 200},
  {name: 'Geek-o-mania', students: 1000}
return (
<BarChart width={600} height={600} data={data}>
    <Bar dataKey="students" fill="green" />
    <CartesianGrid stroke="#ccc" />
    <XAxis dataKey="name" />
    <YAxis />
export default App;
