I was wondering what you think about a stepwise (?) interpolation for line charts (instead of linear)? I've been using it for election results recently as I think it's a better representation of the data (as the results do not change over time, but on election day).

I've also used it for displaying multiple results at a time, and while I was happy with the bar/density-like effect between the changes at first, I'm starting to think linear is somewhat clearer in this case.

TIL completely horizontal or vertical svg paths disappear when using a linear gradient as stroke (solutions are to use userSpaceOnUse as gradientUnits or to make them just a little uneven).

Btw I think TIL does not really capture the whole emotional kaleidoscope of such trial-and-error moments...

In case you're interested how the auto-detection of colorblind issues in Datawrapper works, I wrote it all down in an interactive blog post vis4.net/blog/2018/02/automate vis.social/media/JoiAHRvIu0Bvx vis.social/media/Jv8iNeTpJVhIj

Hey y'all, I am *very* excited to launch a new Datawrapper feature today:

We added an integrated color blindness simulation and *automated color checking*!


Here's the blog post explaining it all blog.datawrapper.de/colorblind

really amazing what you can do - and i'm sure i don't understand the half of it yet. great tool and fun to use, especially for my trial-error-approach to coding.

first, i work as a political scientist in austria, and try to turn all those crosstabs in something less crosstabely (collected at drawingdata.net, although mostly german). i mostly enjoy the moment when some code just miracolously works (thank you ) - and yes, of course, i just followed @scott here from the birdy
