Readme for vega-view-

[back to package description]


I am not 100% convinced this is a worthwhile project, but let's see how it goes.

The aim is to make it easy to view Vega and Vega-Lite specifications - i.e. the JSON representing a visualization - as a visualization. It relies on Vega Embed to do all the hard work, and just provides a basic web server that will list the files in a given directory and, when selected, create the call to Vega Embed.


This is released under a BSD3 license.


The server - called vega-view - should be run from the directory containing the specifications to view. It then provides a web server on port 8082 that can be used to view them at the URL


GHC support

This is currently a very basic application, so will hopefully build against a wide variety of GHC installations. There has been /no/ testing on Windows.
