Getting Started with the Kendo UI for Angular Charts

The Charts are a set of Angular components for building common chart types.


Either use the quick setup (Angular CLI v6 or later) or manually add the package (Angular CLI v5 or earlier).

Quick Setup with Angular CLI v6 or Later

Angular CLI v6 supports the addition of packages through the ng add command which executes in one step the set of otherwise individually needed commands.

ng add @progress/kendo-angular-charts

Manual Setup

All components that you reference during the installation will be present in the final bundle of your application. To avoid ending up with components you do not actually need, either:

  • Import all Charts components at once by using the ChartsModule, or
  • Import a specific Charts component by adding it as an individual NgModule.
  1. Download and install the package.

       npm install --save @progress/kendo-angular-charts @progress/kendo-angular-common @progress/kendo-angular-intl @progress/kendo-angular-l10n @progress/kendo-angular-popup @progress/kendo-drawing hammerjs
  2. Once installed, import Hammer.js and the NgModule of the components you need.

    To get all package components, import the ChartsModule in your [application root]({{['ngmodules'] }}#angular-modularity) or feature module.

        import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
        import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
        import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
        import { ChartsModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-charts';
        import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
        import 'hammerjs';
            bootstrap:    [AppComponent],
            declarations: [AppComponent],
            imports:      [BrowserModule, BrowserAnimationsModule, ChartsModule]
        export class AppModule {

    The package also exports the following modules for individual components:

    • ChartModule
    • SparklineModule
    • StockChartModule

    To reduce the size of your application, include only the ones you need.

        import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
        import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
        import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
        // Imports the Chart module
        import { ChartModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-charts';
        // Imports the Sparkline module
        import { SparklineModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-charts';
            bootstrap: [AppComponent],
            imports:   [
                BrowserModule, BrowserAnimationsModule,
                ChartModule, SparklineModule
        export class AppModule {
  3. You are required to install one of the Kendo UI themes for Angular to style your components. For more information on how to add the styles, refer to the section on styling.


The Charts package requires you to install the following peer dependencies in your application:

  • @angular/common
  • @angular/core
  • @progress/kendo-angular-common
  • @progress/kendo-angular-intl
  • @progress/kendo-angular-l10n
  • @progress/kendo-angular-popup
  • @progress/kendo-drawing
  • hammerjs
  • rxjs

The following dependencies are automatically installed:

  • @progress/kendo-charts

The Charts package utilizes the Angular animation system, which supports a specific set of browsers.
