Our group at Microsoft Research recently released #Charticulator: a new interactive tool for bespoke visualization design, and we'd love to hear your feedback.
You can use it in your browser at https://charticulator.com, where you'll also find a gallery along with video tutorials.
Charticulator is open source at github.com/microsoft/charticulator
We also wrote a paper about Charticulator for IEEEVIS, which received an Honorable Mention for Best Paper: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/uploads/prod/2018/08/Charticulator-InfoVis2018.pdf

i dont see favorites or boosts -- im here for "actual" social engagement with real people. mentions are the only thing i get notifications about, so if you think we'd get along, dont just follow me, say hi!
