    Deneb is a custom visual for Microsoft Power BI, which allows developers to use the declarative JSON syntax of the Vega or Vega-Lite languages to create their own data visualizations.

    Deneb is open source, so if you have ideas or want to contribute, here's the GitHub repo

  • vega

    A visualization grammar.

    As such, I've been obsessed with the Vega and Vega-Lite languages for a long time. These use JSON rather than full-blown code, and allow you to build a visual from the ground-up using a grammar of graphics, much like ggplot2 in R or Altair in Python (which is actually an implementation of Vega/Vega-Lite).

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • ggplot2

    An implementation of the Grammar of Graphics in R

    As such, I've been obsessed with the Vega and Vega-Lite languages for a long time. These use JSON rather than full-blown code, and allow you to build a visual from the ground-up using a grammar of graphics, much like ggplot2 in R or Altair in Python (which is actually an implementation of Vega/Vega-Lite).

  • Altair

    Declarative statistical visualization library for Python

    As such, I've been obsessed with the Vega and Vega-Lite languages for a long time. These use JSON rather than full-blown code, and allow you to build a visual from the ground-up using a grammar of graphics, much like ggplot2 in R or Altair in Python (which is actually an implementation of Vega/Vega-Lite).
