BirdEye – Declarative Visual Analytics Library

Posted · Category: Charts, MIT License

BirdEye is the Declarative Visual Analytics Library. It is a community project to advance the design and development of a comprehensive open source information visualization and visual analytics library for Adobe Flex. The actionscript-based library enables users to create multi-dimensional data visualization interfaces for the analysis and presentation of information.

DVAL is a XML-based syntax language for specifying visual representations. The approach is based on the concepts of Leland Wilkinson’s book The Grammar of Graphics. In this book he describes a foundation for producing a comprehensive information visualization language. The advantage of the DVAL is that all visuals are created using the same structure and logic.

Image-free CSS Tooltip Pointers with Polygonal CSS

Posted · Category: License Free, Tooltips

A while back, Tantek Celik released A Study of Regular Polygons, which used a little-known CSS trick to create non-rectangular shapes such as triangles and pentagons with nothing more than an ordinary HTML element.

The tooltip widget design, fairly common in websites these days, uses a small triangular “speech bubble” pointer that is typically created quite easily with a background image. However, filamentgroup wanted to keep jQuery UI widgets entirely themable, and using an image for that purpose wouldn’t fit with the flexibility jQuery UI requires.

How to solve this problem without any need for images? That challenge led filamentgroup to the experimental approach using polygonal CSS, developed Image-free CSS Tooltip Pointers.
