While JavaScript offers some of the most powerful visualization libraries on the market, such as D3.js, Highcharts or three.js, they require significant configuration which hinders rapid iteration and on-the-fly analysis. However, when doing exploratory data analysis, it is necessary to take many different perspectives in order to obtain insights that might otherwise remain undiscovered. The command-line is an ideal aide for this task as it allows one to combine small, but powerful utilities to process, clean and transform one’s data. In this talk, Philipp Burckhardt will show how the stdlib JavaScript library can be used to combine the strengths of the command-line and browser-based visualization libraries. Since functions of the library are wrapped as CLI utilities, they can be used in conjunction with existing Unix pipelines, so that one is not held back anymore by the lack of data scrubbing and munging tools in the browser environment.
