Dataseed Visualisation

Build Status

Dataseed is an open platform for data visualisation, exploration and analysis. For more information, demos and a free trial see https://getdataseed.com.

This open-source toolkit allows you to create custom visualisations driven by our back-end. Dataseed's back-end supports large datasets, real-time data streams, on-the-fly aggregations, and statistical operations. You can import data via a RESTful API, or by uploading spreadsheets through the UI.

Features

  • Powerful cloud-hosted OLAP analytics engine
  • Support for real-time data streams
  • RESTful JSON API for importing and querying data
  • Open-source javascript front-end, built with backbone.js, gulp, bootstrap - all the good stuff
  • SVG charts build with d3.js and dc.js
  • Versatile multi-dimensional data model
  • Statistical operations including mean, min, max, variance, sum of squares and standard deviation
  • Responsive and ready for desktop / tablet / mobile
  • Paid support plans, custom development, training, and consultancy are available - just ask

Getting Started

  1. git clone git@github.com:dataseed/dataseed-visualisation.js.git
  2. Load index.html in a browser

You will see a visualisation of an example dataset. If you've already create a dataset, then just change the line in index.html:

new DataSetEmbedView({'id': '<your dataset id>'});

Installation

A build process is provided that will compile and minify the JS and LESS in /src into a single .js and .css file in /dist, as well as run jasmine tests.

Requirements

  • NodeJS
  • NPM

Process

  1. git clone git@github.com:dataseed/dataseed-visualisation.js.git
  2. cd dataseed-visualisation.js
  3. npm install
  4. npm install -g bower gulp
  5. bower install
  6. gulp serve
  7. Load in a browser: http://localhost:8080

This will serve the index.html file which includes the compiled css and js from /dist and loads the demo "mortality" visualisation.

You should only modify the js and less within the /src directory, after which you will need to run the build process with: gulp

To see your changes immediately you can serve up the index-src.html file which includes the uncompiled js and less from /src.

Load in a browser: http://localhost:8080/index-src.html

Developer API

An API is available for Dataseed that allows querying and importing of datasets. Documentation can be found at dataseedapp.com/documentation.
