Reusable html-based python visualization library

Project description


A library of web-based visualizations for python and ipython

Set Up / Usage

pip install vislib

vislib is set up to optionally be used within an ipython interactive environment. If used outside of ipython, it will generate html files and open the default browser with the created visualizations.


vis.js timeline

A library for rich interactive timelines. Renders a vis.js timeline component. See

from vislib.visjs import timeline
timeline([{'text': 'first item', 'start': '2018-05-21 17:30:08.202'},
          {'text': 'second item', 'start': "2018-05-21 17:31:53.712"},
          {'text': 'third item', 'start': "2018-05-21 18:14:05.843"}], content_field='text', title='example1')


A d3 based charting library that elegantly mixes power and simplicity. Renders a basic taucharts chart with the given data. See

from vislib.taucharts import chart
chart([{'item': 'car', 'amount': 1},
       {'item': 'book', 'amount': 10},
       {'item': 'bed', 'amount': 3}], x='item', y='amount', title='Taucharts example')


Renders a Treant.js tree. See

from vislib.treant import tree
        'text': { 'name': "Parent node" },
        'children': [{
            'text': { 'name': "First child" }
            'text': { 'name': "Second child" }
