  • A New Package for Making Charts in Emacs: Eplot
    4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 27 Jun 2024
    Neat!

    This is one of my favorite spaces, so I'll add some generic advice which may or may not be helpful.

    I once had the privilege of working for Max Roser and Hannah Ritchie at Our World in Data, as one of the engineers on their Grapher library (https://github.com/owid/owid-grapher), and learned a ton from them (and others on the team) about making great charts.

    My one piece of advice from looking at your examples would be: don't neglect title, subtitle, and caption! They would be so easy to do well because you've already created your "simple headers thingies". A few words go along way. Check out "Storytelling with Data" by Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic for a great read on the subject. Owid's Grapher does those the best, IMO (followed closely by DataWrapper.de -- but that's not open source).

    At some point, if you keep up with this, you'll also want to add a dataflow library and DSL. Hadley Wickham's dplyr in R was the GOAT, and I copied that in my Ohayo tool and in OWID Grapher's CoreTable library (https://github.com/owid/owid-grapher/tree/master/packages/%4...). Jeffrey Heer's newish Arquero (https://idl.uw.edu/arquero/) library is also along those lines.

    Lately I've delving into Mike Bostock's new thing Plot (https://observablehq.com/plot/). So far, excited by it, but only spent a day or two with it at this point.

    I don't use emacs anymore, but hopefully something helpful in the comments above.

    I think the idea of Framework is really good, but static data limits the applications, excluding monitoring and other cases in which the data is constantly changing, but the dashboard can stay as it is. For example, I'd love to see a revamped Framework version of the LHC beam monitor and related pages (see https://op-webtools.web.cern.ch/vistar/, but check again in 2 months or so, when the accelerator will be running).

    In high-energy physics, ROOT is /the/ toolkit for data analysis, and I guess jsROOT (https://root.cern.ch/js/) could also be used to load data to be shown in Framework dashboards. I thought the idea of Framework as a blogging engine with powerful data visualization built-in could be very interesting. Think, for example, about physicists pulling open data (https://opendata.cern.ch) and writing about their analysis or someone pulling data from https://ourworldindata.org/ in their own visualizations to support their case while writing about a particular subject, etc.

    This is patently false. Visit ourworldindata.org and look at the data for the past few hundred years. 17th-century English philosopher Thomas Hobbes famously wrote the "the life of man [is] solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short," which was largely accurate in the 17th century. Today, the poorest people in developed nations enjoy a standard of living that royalty of Hobbes time would have envied. And while the percentage of humanity living in extreme poverty increased from 8.5% to just above 9% in 2022, overall it's down from 80% in the year 1800. We have made similar strides in the areas of education and healthcare.
