Raphaël—JavaScript Library

Raphaël—JavaScript Library
What is it? Raphaël is a small JavaScript library that should simplify your work with vector graphics on the web. If you want to create your own specific chart or image crop and rotate widget, for example, you can achieve it simply and easily with this library. Raphaël ['ræfeɪəl] uses the SVG W3C Recommendation and VML as a base for creating graphics. This means every graphical object you create is also a DOM object, so you can attach JavaScript event handlers or modify them later. Raphaël’s goal is to provide an adapter that will make drawing vector art compatible cross-browser and easy.

Paper.js - Paper.js Standing on the shoulders of Scriptographer and making use of HTML5 standards, Paper.js is a comprehensive open source vector graphics scripting framework. Document Object Model Paper.js provides a Document Object Model (also called a Scene Graph) that is very easy to work with. Create a project and populate it with layers, groups, paths, rasters etc. Groups and layers can contain other items and even other groups. If you've never heard of a Document Object Model before, you can think of it as the layers palette of applications such as Adobe Illustrator & Adobe Photoshop. Using RaphaelJS To Create A Map The brief was actually quite simple. Create an interactive map of the United Kingdom split into regions that when hovered would show a small pop-up containing the name of the region, and when clicked would take you to a specific page. In this case it was to be a term archive page for a specific taxonomy inside WordPress, but it could really be anything (within reason). I have received permission from the client I did the work for to use the map in this tutorial so here is a demo to show you what the finished product looks like.

It can show the dependencies between tasks as lines and allows you to set up different relationships between tasks (finish-to-start, start-to-start, end-to-end). dhtmlxGantt provides flexible API and a large number of event handles, which gives you the freedom to customize it for your needs. Projects and tasks are comfortably organized into a hierarchical structure displayed in the left pane of the chart. The grid is easily configurable so you can add/remove custom columns to display required information.

Top javascript librarys to work with SVG’s What are SVG’s ? According to W3C, SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is a markup language for describing two-dimensional graphics applications and images, and a set of related graphics script interfaces. It is a vector graphics format intended primarily for the Web, though it is getting wider deployment on a variety of devices. Why use it? – When you zoom in on a raster image (like png, jpg or gif) it becomes “pixelated”, but when you zoom in on a vector image, it remains clear at any resolution. Timeline for d3 - proof-of-concept Timeline for d3 - proof-of-concept This chart shows events, that have a defined start and/or end in the time continuum in form of a timeline or timechart. Events can be instants (one date only) or intervals (start date and end date). The timeline consists of two bands. The upper band shows the timeline items with data within the selected timeline interval.

Raphael.js + Backbone.js + Traer.js Raphael.js is a cool vector graphic drawing library for javascript. It uses SVG (VML on IE) to draw just about anything, and provides lots of easy helper methods. The coolest thing about SVG is that since it's XML it can be inserted directly into the dom, so every element has its own dom node. One of my favorite things about Backbone.js is that the only assumption it makes about Views is that they will have a dom element, el.

EDC: Set Visualiser Set Visualiser is a tool developed to visualise the way that a number of items is classified into one or more categories or sets using Euler diagrams. This approach has the advantage that the visualisation can represent non-hierarchical classifications, in which an item may belong to more than one category. An example visualisation is shown on the right, and a more complex visualisation (based on data extracted from our publications database) is shown at the bottom of the page. Set Visualiser is freely available - click here to download a .zip file containing the program, an example file, and the manual in PDF form. (Alternatively, you can download the manual separately.) Details of the algorithm are given in an academic paper, currently in preparation.
