Currently using apexcharts, but it’s laggy and not performing well on mobile. Looking for alternatives that handle heavy data smoother, especially on mobile devices. Suggestions and advice are appreciated.

D3.js is a JavaScript library for producing dynamic, interactive data visualizations in web browsers. It makes use of the widely implemented SVG, HTML5, and CSS standards.

Here's a basic example of how you can use D3.js in a Next.js app:

First, install D3.js by running the following command in your terminal:

npm install d3

Then, you can import it in your Next.js component and use it to create a graph:

import React, { useEffect } from 'react';
import * as d3 from 'd3';

const MyComponent = () => {
useEffect(() => {
// Create a D3 scale
const scale = d3.scaleLinear()
.domain([0, 10])
.range([0, 200]);

// Use the scale
console.log(scale(2.5)); // 50
}, []);

return <div>MyComponent</div>;

export default MyComponent;

This is a very basic example and D3.js can do much more complex things. You can create bar charts, pie charts, line graphs, scatter plots, and much more. It also has a lot of features for manipulating data and creating complex animations.

Another good option is Recharts, a charting library built on D3 and React. It's more abstracted than D3, so it's easier to use if you're just getting started with data visualization. However, it's not as flexible or powerful as D3.

Remember that D3.js has a steep learning curve, so if you're new to data visualization, you might want to start with a simpler library and work your way up to D3.
