Objective

We just launched PykCharts.js - 26+, open source, design biased, responsive charts under the BSD license. This session will do a code walk through of the architecture of PykCharts.js so d3.js developers can contribute to the library.

Description

d3.js is powerful but tough to use! You could copy-paste from d3.js examples but they have inconsistent design and input data formats! For pro-users, coding in d3.js can get easily chaotic. PykCharts.js is our attempt to addresses these issues!

  • Problems with d3.js
  • Solution
  • Charting Design Guidelines we follow
  • Input Data Reusability
  • Code Architecture
  • Configuration Params
  • How to contribute

Requirements

Knowledge of Javascript, d3.js, CSS
