I need to display some statistics/graphical reports which often can be done using something like JQuery when in a stand alone application.
The data will be pulled from a separate database and I would like to display the results inside of WP without using iframes. In other words, I want the graphical displays to be an integral part of wordpress so that there are no extra scrolling windows, etc. Something very light on the server.
I assume this means a custom plugin or maybe one exists but before looking at that, i thought I would ask what might be the best solution in terms of what to use for the reports to begin with?
Perhaps others are already doing such things but using tools which are better suited than JQuery?
Thought I would ask so thank you for any input.
