open a web browser on the server.
point the web browser at a pre-made page that loads
highchartsand renders your chart.
grab the output of the browser.
send that to a client.
which of those steps seems confusing?
note that this will be significantly slower than just using
matplotlib, because you need to start up a full web browser just to render a graph. i had a quick look at the highcharts page you linked and i think you could probably reproduce that in matplotlib.
i had similar requirements and couldn't find an existing solution so i created a little proof-of-concept solution here.
this implementation works by having the python process create a node subprocess that uses the
highchart-export-server node module which in turn spawns a phantomjs instance to render the chart. a few russian dolls involved there, but it does the job.
