Project description

.. _toscawidgets2 (tw2):
.. _protovis:

tw2.protovis.custom is a `toscawidgets2 (tw2)`_ wrapper for `protovis`_.

Live Demo

You can `get the source from github <>`_,

`toscawidgets2 (tw2)`_ aims to be a practical and useful widgets framework
that helps people build interactive websites with compelling features, faster
and easier. Widgets are re-usable web components that can include a template,
server-side code and JavaScripts/CSS resources. The library aims to be:
flexible, reliable, documented, performant, and as simple as possible.

`protovis`_ composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots. Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction.

This module, tw2.protovis.custom, provides `toscawidgets2 (tw2)`_ widgets that render `protovis`_ data visualizations.
