vis.js ================== Vis.js is a dynamic, browser based visualization library. The library is designed to be easy to use, handle large amounts of dynamic data, and enable manipulation of the data. The library consists of the following components: - DataSet and DataView. A flexible key/value based data set. Add, update, and remove items. Subscribe on changes in the data set. Filter and order items and convert fields of items. - Timeline. Display different types of data on a timeline. The timeline and the items on the timeline can be interactively moved, zoomed, and manipulated. - Graph. Display an interactive graph or network with nodes and edges. The vis.js library is developed by [Almende B.V]( ## Install Install via npm: npm install vis Install via bower: bower install vis Or download the library from the github project: []( ## Load To use a component, include the javascript and css files of vis in your web page: ```html ``` or load vis.js using require.js. Note that vis.css must be loaded too. ```js require.config({ paths: { vis: 'path/to/vis', } }); require(['vis'], function (math) { // ... load a visualization }); ``` A timeline can be instantiated as: ```js var timeline = new vis.Timeline(container, data, options); ``` Where `container` is an HTML element, `data` is an Array with data or a DataSet, and `options` is an optional object with configuration options for the component. ## Example A basic example on loading a Timeline is shown below. More examples can be found in the [examples directory]( of the project. ```html Timeline basic demo
``` ## Build To build the library from source, clone the project from github git clone git:// The project uses [jake]( as build tool. The build script uses [Browserify]( to bundle the source code into a library, and uses [UglifyJS]( to minify the code. The source code uses the module style of node (require and module.exports) to organize dependencies. To install all dependencies and build the library, run `npm install` in the root of the project. cd vis npm install Then, the project can be build running: npm run build ## Test To test the library, install the project dependencies once: npm install Then run the tests: npm test ## License Copyright (C) 2010-2014 Almende B.V.
