This plugin randomly stopped working and there is no support for it. Needs to be updated & maintained.

Does not accomidate easyPieChart functionality fully. Not been tested against latest stable releases in some time. Had to hack the core for the plugin to do what it says on the tin. Think twice and just use easyPieChart JS Directly until the dev picks up support again

I think this is nice and it fits well but, the full circle one isn't working so well for my website. I added it but there is no animation, and the circle does not look like its been vectorized, it comes up quite pixelated.
