Generation of svg on server side using highcharts


Question

I did require('jsdom') in node js but i constantly get jsdom module not found. More over i want to generate a svg document using highcharts on the server so that i can later on use that image in my pdf( I will convert that svg to image using batik). Is there a link that may help me with this. I have read through the http://blog.davidpadbury.com/2010/10/03/using-nodejs-to-render-js-charts-on-server/ but the prototype didnt make much sense. Is there a module which has been implemented rather than just a prototype.

Accepted Answer

You need to install all the required modules first. First download the tar file from his github https://github.com/davidpadbury/node-highcharts. Go to the directory where you saved the file and hit

npm install davidpadbury-node-highcharts-576f763.tar.gz

if you need to install additional modules like jsdom, try

npm install jsdom

His prototype seem to work fine with older version of highchart. but i am having some problem using it with latest highchart.

I hope this helped
