When I first came up with the concept for LastWave (essentially, mimic LastGraph), I assumed that the most difficult part of making it would be the graph itself. As tends to happen with projects, I totally misjudged this. Using rickshaw.js and d3.js, I was able to get a functioning graph running in very little time. I then had two main challenges:
1. Place the artist names in the graph
2. Allow the graph to be exported/printed/turned into an image
Over the next few days, I’ll make two posts outlining the strategies I used to accomplish each of these things.
