Formatting nerds unite. 👀 I'm a dashboard formatting nerd, so being able to parametrize *everything* is great. Diff filter values get diff color schemes? Yes. Change the viz? Change the tab? Yes. Yes. Spent a couple hours building this test board & am pleased with how putting stuff together "feels". pic.twitter.
Take a snapshot of the state of all parameters, sizes, locations - and then swap between them like dashboard tabs. When you app runs on "everything is automatically a parameter", this can get very interesting. Storyboards & custom views? Nah. Snapshots! Content untouched but all params, filters, coords, sizes, selected tabs,
That about explains it. ;) Dragging a compatible already-made viz on to a grid and watch it "weave by dimension X"... Experimenting a bit. Taking an *existing* viz block & "weaving it" across a compatible dimension *inside* a separate data table (regardless of data source)... Hmmm... 👀 pic.twitter.com/nZiD1GM8aR — Ryan Robitaille
Quick Twitter video of it in action. Things are getting interesting! Drill-down / drill "through". Any aggregate can be reduced to it's base group-bys, even hopping down though nested sub-queries if need be. The spawning summary grid becomes a "super filter" for the drilldown grid. Filter on a row, a single
Viz layers. Building things interactively using the canvas as a workspace surface to separate / examine / combine items. Instead of "query mode, then viz mode, then filter mode, then dashboard mode"... Why can't we do all at the same time?#sql #dataviz #clojure #nomodes pic.twitter.com/WJA41mYTdP — Ryan Robitaille (@ryrobes)
