D3 Basics

Getting up and running and understanding the latest in D3.js


D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data.


  • pretty unbounded capabilities
  • well documented API
  • not available via CDN and for offline/stand-alone packaging and distribution


  • quite complicated to do simple things
  • steep learning curve: lack of examples and getting started guides
  • version differences can impair learning (most published resources are for older versions)

This page is a web-friendly rendering of my project notes shared in the LittleCodingKata GitHub repository.

LittleCodingKata is my collection of programming exercises, research and code toys broadly spanning things that relate to programming and software development (languages, frameworks and tools).

These range from the trivial to the complex and serious. Many are inspired by existing work and I'll note credits and references where applicable. The focus is quite scattered, as I variously work on things new and important in the moment, or go back to revisit things from the past.

This is primarily a personal collection for my own edification and learning, but anyone who stumbles by is welcome to borrow, steal or reference the work here. And if you spot errors or issues I'd really appreciate some feedback - create an issue, send me an email or even send a pull-request.
