To implement Chart.js in Angular 2, you can follow the steps given below:

  1. Install Chart.js package using npm: npm install chart.js --save
  2. Install typings for Chart.js: npm install --save @types/chart.js
  3. Import the necessary modules in your Angular application: Open the app.module.ts file and add the following imports: import { ChartsModule } from 'ng2-charts'; import 'chart.js';
  4. Add ChartsModule to the imports array in @NgModule decorator: imports: [ // other imports ChartsModule ],
  5. Create a component to display the chart: ng generate component chart
  6. In the component's HTML template, add the chart element:
  7. In the component's TypeScript file (chart.component.ts), define the chart data and options: import { Component } from '@angular/core'; @Component({ selector: 'app-chart', templateUrl: './chart.component.html', styleUrls: ['./chart.component.css'] }) export class ChartComponent { public lineChart = { type: 'line', legend: true, labels: ['January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July'], data: [ { data: [65, 59, 80, 81, 56, 55, 40], label: 'Series A' }, { data: [28, 48, 40, 19, 86, 27, 90], label: 'Series B' } ], options: { responsive: true } }; }
  8. Finally, add the component to the main application template (app.component.html):
  9. Run the application: ng serve

Now, you should be able to see the chart rendered in your Angular 2 application. Make sure to adjust the chart data and options according to your requirements.
