A repository for learning how to use tornado, combined with elasticsearch and d3.js for visualizations.


  • python 3.4
  • elasticsearch-py
  • tornado
  • mako

To view main visualization:

  • Separate "make_bar_chart.js" into "make_bar_chart.js", "make_title_list.js", and "make_word_cloud.js" (or separate code in another way that makes sense).
  • TODOs found throughout make_bar_chart.js
You can’t perform that action at this time.
