Abstract

We live in world of “big data”. However, the front-end for the “big data” age is the browser which cannot hold more than 1-5 MB of data at any given moment of time. The problem becomes more aggravated in mobiles where the bandwidth is even lower. How to build user interfaces that are data heavy and interactive in nature?

Outline

At Pykih, we have attempted to solve this problem with a Javascript Framework (PykQuery.js) that establishes a consistent way for our team to write data-driven interactive front-ends.
