Data parsing

The files in folder ftavis_parse_data get the source data from http://www.designoftradeagreements.org/ and extend, parse and prepare them for the visualisation. Keep in mind that a dendrogram is a node-link diagram that expect the data prepared in the Flare class hierarchy, courtesy Jeff Heer.

Visualisation

The dev version of the app doesn't run with bower/grunt and can be accessed with a local server. It mainly consists of the js files sorted by their sequential call. Grunt has been used to minify and optimize the project for the live version.

Usage

 git clone https://github.com/ahoiin/ftavis-webapp
 cd ftavis-webapp
 npm install

## Dev mode

start local server, e.g., with MAMP
open http://localhost/ftavis-webapp/app

## Build

grunt build
