If the number of variables is small, and there is no filtering of values to get the graphs, you could generate the graphs as PDFs or PNGs and send
them with the CSV file. You could also send an updated menu/list HTML file.

All static, all blindingly fast and browser/OS agnostic. You only need Perl + some graphics modules on the server & don't need to install any

If there's filtering, or a large number of variables/variatons, then....
