IF you can provide the data as a static file (say in json format) you can use plotly.js on the browser side to turn that into a graph. The plotly.js library supports zooming/panning and other functionality all without refetching the data from the server.

I use this as part of a full vuejs application (with nodejs backed) for displaying server monitoring data but its not particularly hard to load the data into plotly on the browser side and use it stand alone. This is what I did in my early experimental phases.

If you want I can provide some of my simple js test code to help you out.
