Hello Product Hunt! We're really happy to be introducing NotebookJS today. NotebookJS is a computation environment built entirely on JavsScript. Now you can analyze and visualize your data directly from your browser. The best part about this are the Modules. Re-usable code submitted by the community that you can integrate in your session. So if you love building in D3 or just pure JS, submit yours and others will use them! I wrote more about this in this blog post: Some examples here:

What's the best way to make data available to the notebook? Can I call remote APIs?

@cridenour good question! for now, you can only stream your datasets directly from yours or anyone's Datazar projects. will be releasing and API method soon. we also encourage everyone to build modules that connect to specific APIs or applications. that way it's just plug and play!

Disclaimer: I work at Datazar. It's hard to describe the feeling you get when you release a new notebook module. It may sound cheesy, but it really feels like you're helping make the world a better place, because no matter what your module does, or how much it does, there's potential your handy work will be a part of emergent, world-changing research projects. That's powerful.

I love the idea. What's the roadmap for further project evolution?

@nhuebecker thank you Nikolas! glad to hear that. we're going to be focusing a bit on symbolic computation and also building the Module directory up so you can type less and less code every time. a lot of the value comes from the modules other people have built, just like R packages.

so this is not a JS framework but a cloud environment for data science, correct?

@gopietz correct!
