London d3js

February 16, 2016

immutable.js + d3.js = ?

d3.js’ component and update patterns easily allow for a more functional or Flux-like approach to visualisation rendering. Converting your render to a pure function of your model makes debugging much easier but often with an associated performance cost. Whilst this isn’t always noticeable in modern desktop browsers, it can be terminal on mobile or legacy browsers.

In this talk I’ll look at how immutable.js can be combined with d3.js to produce high performance visualisations, without compromising on your code’s structure.

The prevalence of touch-sensitivity and gesture recognition in modern consumer devices presents us with an awkward opportunity. If used poorly they become an awkward, gimmicky interface.
