Paper.js — The Swiss Army Knife of Vector Graphics Scripting. Paper.js is an open source vector graphics scripting framework that runs on top of the HTML5 Canvas. It offers a clean Scene Graph / Document Object Model and a lot of powerful functionality to create and work with vector graphics and bezier curves, all neatly wrapped up in a well designed, consistent and clean programming interface. Paper.js is based on and largely compatible with Scriptographer, a scripting environment for Adobe Illustrator with an active community of scripters and more than 10 years of development. Paper.js is easy to learn for beginners and has lots to master for intermediate and advanced users. Paper.js is developed by Jürg Lehni & Jonathan Puckey, and distributed under the permissive MIT License. Getting Started First of all, take a look at some of our examples.Download Paper.js or check out the latest version from our Github Repository.Want to learn Paper.js?

Use Flot to turn numbers into visual stories From building apps to backgrounding stories, reporters work with numerical data in all kinds of ways. It’s a practice that will no doubt increase in the future as more data becomes available all the time. But as anyone who’s tried to work numbers into a story knows, it’s difficult to convey the meaning of too many numbers to people without a visual. Even a simple line chart can help in a city budget story, for instance, while more in-depth subjects like school report cards and our nation’s budget require charts if they are to be understood. Interactivity can be a huge boon for understanding (though it should only be used when necessary, as it can quickly create clutter). Flot is a powerful library. The HTML file has in its head several scripts. There are two excanvas files included with the Flot download. Next, we have jQuery, included from the Google Libraries API, and then the Flot library itself. The body of this page is a single div: This div must have 1.) an ID, and 2.) But wait.

dotjs — hack the web README.markdown ..................... dotjs ........................ dotjs is a Google Chrome extension that executes JavaScript files in ~/.js based on their filename. If you navigate to dotjs will execute ~/.js/ This makes it super easy to spruce up your favorite pages using JavaScript. On subdomains such as dotjs will try to load ~/.js/ as well as ~/.js/ and ~/.js/com.js. Bonus: files in ~/.js have jQuery 1.9 loaded, regardless of whether the site you're hacking uses jQuery. Double bonus: ~/.js/default.js is loaded on every request, meaning you can stick plugins or helper functions in it. GreaseMonkey user scripts are great, but you need to publish them somewhere and re-publish after making modifications. Example How It Works Chrome extensions can't access the local filesystem, so dotjs runs a tiny web server on port 3131 that serves files out of ~/.js. Requires Install it Uninstall it

The picker is a hidden layer, doesn't use any pop-ups and can be positioned on any side of the input field. It has 2 modes; HSV (hue saturation, value) or HVS, can be set to display a default color on initial load and its look can be customized. There are functions provided for showing/hiding the color picker and it can generate RGB or HSV values from a HEX input.

The Periodic Table of Visualization Methods, hosted by the impressive Swiss Visual Literacy project, is the most comprehensive visualization taxonomy I have seen. It divides visualizations into Data, Information, Concept, Strategy, Metaphor, and Compound Visualizations. Each of these is then classified as a process or structure visualization, and further subdivided into whether they show detail, overview, or detail and overview, and whether they support convergent or divergent thinking. Dan Roam's Visual Thinking Codex, from his delightful book The Back of the Napkin, strikes an excellent balance between simplicity and comprehensiveness. The Codex can be found on p. 141 of Dan's book. Dan RoamTHE BACK OF THE NAPKINCopyright 2008 PortfolioAvailable at
