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

Live Demo

Peep the `live demonstration <http:"" module?module="tw2.protovis.hierarchies">`_.


You can `get the source from github <http:"" ralphbean="" tw2.protovis.hierarchies="">`_,
check out `the PyPI page <http:"" pypi="" tw2.protovis.hierarchies="">`_, and
report or look into `bugs <http:"" ralphbean="" tw2.protovis.hierarchies="" issues=""/>`_.


`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 hierarchies 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.hierarchies, provides `toscawidgets2 (tw2)`_ widgets that render `protovis`_ data visualizations.
