44 : Time to recline

Well, after a bit of a hiatus, I’m back at the drawing board.  I’m going to start kicking the tires of recline.js because it contains both Leaflet and d3 and it is integrated to the ckan data platform that I’m going to be working with as part of my work with Open Data Windsor Essex.

So I’m going to start working through its tutorials and demos and document that work here.

First demo: Views Tutorial!

Well it took me a ridiculous amount of time to get this demo working, largely because all the dependant libraries had updated version names. And also because while the demo appears to make the chart appear by javascript, I could not make it appear for the life of me. So I searched and found someone on Stack Overflow who was able to make it work and that was done by adding another CSS reference and wrapping the JavaScript into jquery.

I thought I’d try giving the demo another go with JavaScript but I’m getting some undefined error from the SlickGrid DOM and so that’s much too hairy a problem to understand for too little payout.

And so I’m not particularly keen about recline at the moment. But then again, I’m shaky with my JavaScript and hella rusty too. I’ll see if I can try again tomorrow.
