wealth of nations

Hi all,

Is Bokeh now able to generate a “Wealth of Nations” style plot, without the user having to write in javascript ? (https://bost.ocks.org/mike/nations/)

Maybe there is already an example ?

I haven't seen an example apart from Sarah Bird's CustomJS version, but it seems to me this would be fairly trivial to also create this using only python, as a Bokeh application using the Bokeh server. Sometime in the near future, we will also have animations and transitions, which would provide a path to reproduce this without the server, in a standalone Bokeh document created purely from python.

If you happen to create a Bokeh server version of this visualization, it would make a great addition to the examples, if you are able to contribute it.

Thanks,

Bryan

Hi Bryan,

It’s not trivial for me. I asked because:

  • “wealth of nations” is typical of what I see desired at workplace this year,
  • it could be a selling feature for the Python stack.

I think it would be easiest to create this with pure python in a server app. I’d be glad to help out with an example.

Hi stonebig,

My apologies, I was really just trying to enthusiastically convey that I think something like this is well within the current capabilities of a Bokeh Application, and will also be possible to do in the relatively near future as a standalone document. Another possibility that is at least worth mentioning: It's also now possible to write CustomJS callbacks in "python" and have them automatically compiled to JavaScript. That would be another approach to re-doing the current gapminder example to be only python.

I agree that a pure python version of some sort would make a very nice addition, and I am happy to see that there may be a couple of different people interested and available to look into it.

Thanks,

Bryan
