  • Sarah Bird - Interactive Data For The Web - Bokeh For Web Developers - Pycon 2015
    Interactive data visualization libraries are mostly a JavaScript stronghold. The new Python library, Bokeh, provides a simple, clean way to make more shiny things. Although it comes from the data science community, it has a lot to offer web developers. For a visualization you might have built in d3.js, I'll show how to build it in Bokeh, how to test it, and how to hook it into your web app...

  • D3 Handwriting Type Generator
    d3_handwriting - An attempt to create 'real' handwriting glyphs using d3. D3 takes care of generating SVG lines for the glyphs, whose coordinates are randomized runtime and interpolated using basis interpolation to achieve that good ol' scrawl feel. It also (almost) guarantees that every rendering will be unique - just like every scribble is...

    Function Plot is a small library built on top of D3.js whose purpose is to render functions with little configuration (think of it as a little clone of Google's plotting utility: y=x2)...The library currently supports interactive line charts and scatterplots, whenever the graph scale is modified the function is evaluated again with the new bounds, result: infinite graphs!...
  • d3-satellite-tool
    If you want to create awesome D3 Satellite maps, you're going to need to fiddle with the parameters to get the zoom and angles right. This tool allows you to do that more quickly...
