  • d3

    Bring data to life with SVG, Canvas and HTML. :bar_chart::chart_with_upwards_trend::tada:

    Project mention: [E] I'd like to learn how to make high-quality interactive visualizations to explain statistical topics. (See example in post) | | 2023-01-18

    This is the source code for the distill pub you linked to: I dug through the code a little and believe most of the interactive visuals were created with d3.js. That's certainly 1 of the options you can use to recreate the same type of visuals. d3 is incredibly powerful (it's the tool professional news organisations use for their visualisations) but also rather complex. If you are new to Javascript in general, it might not be the most practical choice.

  • three.js

    JavaScript 3D Library.

    Project mention: Getting Started With Three.js | | 2023-01-31

    In case you’re not happy with the existing geometries or need to create your own geometry classes, it is very possible. You can see some examples provided by three.js here.

    Project mention: [Media] Genetic algorithm simulation - Smart rockets (code link in comments) | | 2023-01-29

    You're welcome, frameworks like nannou are called **Creative coding frameworks**, processing I think is the most popular one out there, also P5js.

    Project mention: The Continuity of Splines – Video Essay by Freya Holmér | | 2022-12-17

    Ooh, the Chebyshev basis is neat. I hadn't seen exactly that before. It reminds me a lot of the "shape control" technique[1] which is also similar to a basis function approach but has a bit of linear solving. Essentially, you get one point (usually at t = 0.5), and also the direction but not magnitudes of the tangents at the endpoints (G1, not C1). This is one of the better-performing existing techniques for offset curve, though does have stability problems (in particular, nasty behavior for a symmetric "S" curve).

    Regarding collaboration with Freya, if she is open to it, please get in touch. I do have some ideas.

    A visualization grammar.

    Project mention: Launched my ADHD productivity app on product hunt - would love your support | | 2022-11-12

    Eh, I have no reason to, and not much interest in PHP anymore. Things like Vega seem really cool.

  • victory

    A collection of composable React components for building interactive data visualizations

    Project mention: How to create such chart in React Native? | | 2023-01-24

    For convenience of others, here’s a link to Victory Native’s project site (it’s a react.js library with a native version, so be sure to find the native docs).

  • svg.js

    The lightweight library for manipulating and animating SVG

    Project mention: [AskJS] Is there any javascript library that can perform boolean operations on svg paths (union, subtract, intersect, difference)? | | 2022-07-28

    Thanks for the link to this great and useful library. It's really awesome, and I didn't know there was a node.js version. But it seems that it doesn't support boolean operations, or at least I haven't found it in the documentation. There is only the following github issue with no answer: And a request for an intersection function that doesn't seem to be implemented: Maybe I'm missing something?

  • trianglify

    Algorithmically generated triangle art

    Project mention: – Low Poly Pattern Generator | | 2022-09-18

    Author here - interesting to see this pop up on HN again!

    Since there are a lot of questions in the comments that might be answered by prior writing/discussions, here are a couple relevant links:

    0. is a GUI for my GPL-licensed node library of the same name, which is available for use in OSS projects for free:

    1. Trianglify (the library) first became popular because of an HN post eight years ago. Discussion here:

    2. I've written a short Medium article on why exists and how I arrived at the current freemium/micropayments model for monetizing it:

    A renderer agnostic two-dimensional drawing api for the web.

    Project mention: Trying to build a front end interactive browser or app experience where touch to screen simulates a visual heat map. | | 2022-11-25

    Javascript touch events paired with WebGL would be the route I’d go. There are some really great libraries for WebGL (twojs) or working with SVG (mojs) if you want to keep it simple
