So I needed an excuse to try D3js and therefore I decided to try to visualize the results of the two past elections (2007, 2009) of the Italian Democratic Party. I’ve collected the results in this page, and the code is on github.
With great power comes great responsibilities (– Spiderman 2009)
Some resources I found very helpful:
- the tutorial: d3 for mere mortals is very good: http://www.recursion.org/d3-for-mere-mortals/
- this HTML5 presentation: http://lws.node3.org/#landing-slide
- This site, which explain everything in detail: http://www.dashingd3js.com/
It’s not that bad, and I think the steepness of D3js is like LaTeX, quite tricky at the beginning, in favour of very nice and professional results in the long run.
So yeah, you can read and have a look at my first step at http://michelemattioni.me/evolution-primarie-pd/
Edit 1: Added a new D3Js tutorial
