A streamgraph is a type of stacked area graph which is displaced around a central axis, resulting in a flowing, organic shape.

Configuration options for the series are given in three levels:

  1. Options for all series in a chart are defined in the plotOptions.series object.
  2. Options for all streamgraph series are defined in plotOptions.streamgraph.
  3. Options for one single series are given in the series instance array.
Highcharts.chart('container', {
    plotOptions: {
        series: {
            // general options for all series
        streamgraph: {
            // shared options for all streamgraph series
    series: [{
        // specific options for this series instance
        type: 'streamgraph'
