Some days ago, I posted superset. It was amazing for me.
Superset needs database for retrieve data to make visualization. It is difficult to handle database such as Postgres, Oracle, MySQL etc. for medicinal chemist.
Today, I found very nice tool for data visualization based on D3.js.
The name is ‘raw’.
The tool can use not only web app but also your local environment. Wow it’s good news! Raw can make many visualization via web interface.
URL is following.
It is very easy to build local environment.
To install raw in your local PC, it is required to install bower at first. It is installed by npm.
And after installed bower, install raw is simple.
$ git clone git://github.com/densitydesign/raw.git $ cd raw $ bower install # That's all 😉 # Let's start server ( following command is for python3+ ) $ python -m http.server 4000
Now I can access http://localhost:4000 and get following image.
At first I need to paste data to input box. I used sample data for sanky diagram.
source,target1,target2,value Barry,Elvis,Sarah,2 Frodo,Elvis,Sarah,2 Frodo,Sarah,Elvis,2 Barry,Alice,Elvis,2 Elvis,Sarah,Barry,2 Elvis,Alice,Barry,2 Sarah,Alice,Barry,4
It was amazing for me because to make visualization, it is only needed to paste data and set up some parameters through web interface. @_@
It is interesting app isn’t it ? If reader who interested in the code, please try it. 😉
