DEPRECATION NOTICE: Data Explorer has been merged into (and replaced by) Recline - please see that repo for more details.


DataExplorer is a pure javascript opensource client-side web application for viewing and visualizing data.

It's similar to applications like ManyEyes or the Google Visualization Tools (such as the public data explorer) but is:

  • Open-source
  • Pure javascript (not Flash)
  • Pure client-side app -- so it's easy to embed in other sites and applications
  • Designed to integrate and reuse existing (open-source) libraries
