☀☀☀ Zingchart converts simple JavaScript code into useful charts. The tool provides a library of graphics, from animation to dozens of chart types. You log entries into the code (above, left) and the chart is created (right). This service is free for basic charts, but pricey for subscription-based services. Journalist-coders will be able to use Zingchart effectively, but if you don’t know the first thing about code, you will not get much use out of this app. — Scotty Bara
