I tremble to ask, a bit, but I've gone down a js rabbit hole for the past few days in trying to pull a visualization together (give me python-- even perl!-- any day)
is there anyone here I can bug with some #d3js questions?
mine are, I'm sure, totally basic questions, but a lot of the resources I've found are unhelpful or out of date
oh wow, thanks so much! I'm actually going through your book at the moment, and it's been super helpful
I guess one big question I had is that some of my data is tabular, and makes sense to present as a table, I think, (though there's more to what I'm doing with it than that), but I'm finding working with tables in d3 a bit inelegant (compared to all sorts of other d3 visualizations). am I missing something, or are tables kind of a pain to work with?
@mrgah Hmm, well, yes, it's my personal opinion that HTML tables have *always* been a pain to work with! :) But that's not really about D3. With D3 it should be relatively easy to, say, bind your array/rows of data, say each one to a new <tr>. Then create <td> cells as needed, populated with whatever d. values.
@mrgah I am also suffering through js for a visualization.
My nº suggestion: use jquery, it makes everything so much easier.
