D3.js can help you make data beautiful.
Data is the new medium of choice for telling a story or presenting compelling information on the Internet and d3.js is an extraordinary framework for presentation of data on a web page.
Is this book for you?
It’s not written for experts. It’s put together as a guide to get you started if you’re unsure what d3.js can do. It reads more like a story as it leads the reader through the basics of line graphs and on to discover animation, tooltips, tables, interfacing with MySQL databases via PHP, sankey diagrams, force diagrams, maps and more…
Why was D3 Tips and Tricks written?
Because in the process of learning things, it’s a great way to remember them if you write them down :-).
As a result, learning how to do cool stuff with D3 meant that I accumulated a sizeable number ways to help me out when the going got tricky. Then I realised that these could be useful for others who were trying out d3.js and who were at a similar knowledge level.
So here we are! A collection of tips and tricks for d3.js written by a noob for people who might consider that they’re in the same situation :-).
What’s in the book?
I’ve captured the appropriate code (in cool looking coloured text) and added in heaps of illustrations of what’s going on so that you will get more traction at the start of your learning process than I did.
