I found that some chart.js things I need are missing from MDB (bootstap) , like time series support which I need.

It is easy enough to just add the chart.js files (Chart.min.js and then chartjs-adapter-date-fns.bundle.min.js for time series) and and use that instead of the MDB version.

So my question is: Could I expect that to cause problems down the road by using the chart.js directly instead of the mdb variant?

best, j

We cannot assure you that this application will function properly. Can you prepare a snippet to show what doesn't work with MDB package alone?

Your college said 2 weeks ago in https://mdbootstrap.com/support/angular/how-to-add-chartjs-adapters-to-charts/ that mdbootstrap does not support adaptors

For time series support one needs an adaptor like


and in the plot js, under options, scales, time: { unit: 'year',},

I can use chartjs directly by loading its js, and then load that adaptor js, so am asking if that causes any problems with mdbootstrap.
