@mistergibson Hi, concerning Opal-d3.
We recently contacted Tomasz, the guy who started to convert D3 to OPAL-D3 (https://github.com/taw/opal-d3). It works with Opal 0.10.5 and 60% of methods are converted.
We started by making this REPO working with Opal 0.11: ( https://github.com/fzingg/opal-d3).
And because we would like to use with HYPERLOOP, @janbiedermann made the Hyper-D3 https://github.com/janbiedermann/hyper-d3.

We did not continue actively to develop thie Hyper-d3 because we changed mind and finally the lib VISJS suits better our needs. So @janbiedermann Hyperloop(ed) this lib: https://github.com/janbiedermann/hyper-vis
It is working great, and we will list it on the Hyperloop website in the future.
If you need help, jsut shout.

Sorry for irrelevant messages, Gitter sometimes shows one tab selected when actually it's another (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

i would like to add, that the opal-d3 included in hyper-d3 can be used just as opal-d3, is a little more complete and way smaller and faster, as it doesnt use the parser and doesnt do ruby eval in the browser.

Thanks - had a native method issue with the other version. This version loads flawlessly :)

@mistergibson :+1: If you code projects with Opal-d3, I would be very interested to see sources :sparkles:

ok
I plan to use it as the base of a toolkit of sorts - needs some thought though
at some point I want to dork with webgl
I really like the data-driven philosophy of d3
