The code for twelve charting libraries which I tried for my blogpost "One Chart, Twelve Charting Libraries"

Excerpt from the blog post: "Charting Libraries. Gosh, there are so many out there. On Wikipedia and other websites, one can find a comparison of ca. 50 libraries - and these are only JavaScript libraries; not mentioning languages like Processing and libraries for Python and R. In the following blog post, I will try to get to know a few ones out of the great sea of possibilities. I want to understand their differences and how easy it is to learn them. To do so, I recreated the same bubble chart with twelve different frameworks. The chart and the underlying dataset I'll use for that experiment are explained in the last post, "One Chart, Twelve Tools"."

I'm fairly new to most of these libraries. If there's a better way to create the bubble chart than the one I used, please let me know on Twitter or via email (lisacharlotterost@gmail.com)!
