another interesting option is https://github.com/hswick/jutsu it also has server client architecture and uses plotly.js (which is quite awesome).

This looks pretty great, if a bit immature.

what’s the difference between vega and vega-lite?

metasoarous16:12:46

Vega-lite is a more terse and semi-automated version of vega, easier for writing by hand, while vega is more general and flexible but more verbose and ultimately better as a "compile-to" target. I believe vega-lite itself just compiles down to vega, so to some extent it should be possible to mix and match as needed.

@metasoarous great, thanks for the explanation, I’ll give both a try to get a better feel

If you were to work on a pdf extraction and classification project in Clojure, what tools would you reach for?

jsa-aerial17:12:53

vega lite is an 'interactive grammar for graphics' specifically targeted to data exploration and statistical analysis. As such it targets a subset of vega's capabilities but for the domain it targets it is much higher level. It compiles to vega (which in turn targets D3, which is even lower level)

@jsa-aerial thanks, that makes sense, I’ll watch he video too
