D3.js can help you make data beautiful.

D3 Tips and Tricks is a book written to help those who may be unfamiliar with javascript or web page creation get started turning information into visualization. Tips and tricks for using d3.js (version 5), one of the leading data visualization tools for the web. It's aimed at getting you started and moving you forward. Data is the new medium of choice for telling a story or presenting compelling information on the Internet and d3.js is an extraordinary framework for presentation of data on a web page.

javascript is whats called a scripting language. It is the code that will be contained inside the HTML file that will make D3 do all its fanciness. In fact, D3 is a javascript Library, its the native language for using D3. Knowing a little bit about this would be really good, but to be perfectly honest, I didnt know anything about it before I started. I read a book along the way (javascript: The Missing Manual from OReilly) and that helped with context, but the examples that are available for D3 graphics are understandable, and with a bit of trial and error, you can figure out whats going on. In fact, most of what this collection of informations about is providing examples and explanations for the javascript components of D3.

Is this book for you?

It's not written for experts. It's put together as a guide to get you started if you're unsure what d3.js can do. It reads more like a story as it leads the reader through the basics of line graphs and on to discover animation, tooltips, tables, interfacing with databases via PHP, sankey diagrams, force diagrams, maps and more...
Why was D3 Tips and Tricks originally written?

Because in the process of learning things, it's a great way to remember them if you write them down :-).

As a result, learning how to do cool stuff with D3 meant that I accumulated a sizeable number ways to help me out when the going got tricky. Then I realised that these could be useful for others who were trying out d3.js and who were at a similar knowledge level.

What's in the book?

I've captured the appropriate code (in cool looking coloured text) and added in heaps of illustrations of what's going on so that you will get more traction at the start of your learning process than I did.
But wait! There's code!

There are over 50 code examples used in the book (with their data files) available to download (still free!) and they will also available online.
