About This Project

A real-time dashboard for quickly visualizing tends in currency fluctuations for major currencies over the past month. Developed end-to-end to display metrics in real time. Extracts metrics from the ECB currency API, transforms data using Python's Pandas, visualizes sparklines using d3. Served using nginx and gunicorn via the Flask micro-framework.

You can view this dashboard live here.

What Are Sparklines?

A sparkline is a small intense, simple, word-sized graphic with typographic resolution.
Sparklines mean that graphics are no longer cartoonish special occasions with captions and boxes,
but rather sparkline graphics can be everywhere a word or number can be: embedded in a sentence,
table, headline, map, spreadsheet, graphic. Data graphics should have the resolution of typography.
-- Edward Tufte, Beautiful Evidence
