RAWGraphs - The missing link between spreadsheets and data visualization
RAW Graphs is an open source data visualization framework built with the goal of making the visual representation of complex data easy for everyone.
Primarily conceived as a tool for designers and vis geeks, RAWGraphs aims at providing a missing link between spreadsheet applications (e.g., LibreOffice Calc, Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers, Google Docs) and vector graphics editors (e.g., Inkscape, Adobe Illustrator).
@jeau this is a neat find!
Digging into it a bit, this is simply a front-end application, meaning you don't need a backend for it. You could probably host this via the Surfer application. Clone the repo, run
yarn buildas their README states, and then place the resulting build files into a Surfer application resulting in your own instance of RAWGraphs!
@thetomester13 you are right, it works ! I generated the build on my computer and transferred it to the root of a new surfer app. By default this build include Google analytics
@jeau ah yeah I see that in their index.html page, unfortunate you can always remove it yourself manually, but then you have to do it everytime you rebuild/redeploy.

perhaps come up with a sanitizer script that runs as part of the build process..
