I just recently implemented Highcharts using a JSON data source.  Since I was hooking Highcharts into an existing process, it was a little messy, but it came out OK.  

What area are you having trouble with?

Why? Modifying the data source and redrawing the chart will dynamically update the chart.

As a note, putting the JSON data into a knockout observable and then modifying the JSON data within the observable will NOT trigger knockout to do raise any events.  

I need more information about why you want to include knockout with your chart.

observables only keep track of whether the object is or isn't in the array.  It will not keep track on the properties of your JSON data unless you make them observables as well but that gets tricky with ajax loaded data so we should avoid that for now.

You stiill haven't answered why you need to use knockout?  just load the JSON data via ajax and create the chart.  No need to store the JSON data in a knockout ViewModel.

Ok, so it sounds like you're storing the JSON data for the chart in an observable, hoping that any change made to that JSON data will automatically update the chart.  That's not the way knockout works, however you can force it to refresh by simply removing the object from the observable and adding it back in.

Make sense?

e.g. a very simple json example

// some observable that is initialised with null
vm.chart_data = ko.observable(null);
...
ko.applyBindings(vm);
...

// ajax here:
$.ajax({
     ...
     success: function(data) {
         vm.chart_data.removeAll();
         vm.chart_data(data); // reset the data in the observable and trigger a change event for the chart
     }
});
