Timeline

Getting Started

Prerequisites

You'll need to install node.js and npm first. You can get them by hitting the install button over at http://nodejs.org/.

Dependencies

To install timeline dependencies, run:

npm install

Create an empty folder to create your timeline. timeline will parse all files in this folder and watches the filesystem for updates.

Run the daemon from the folder that you created. For example:

cd /home/me/MyTimeline
node /home/me/gitstuff/timeline/lib/serve.js

Then point your browser to http://localhost:8888/.

Timeline file format

Use plain text files to create your timeline. For example:

December 31, 1999 - January 1, 2000
Partied like it was 1999

December 2000
Partied like it was still 1999?

You can specify background colors by adding a color: line. This will apply to all events for the remainder of the file.

color: hotpink

December 2013
Wrote timeline instead of partying
