About the Book
React+d3.js ES6 is designed to be short, but comprehensive.
In about an hour, it will guide you through a whole React and d3.js project from start to finish.
Everything from setting up code compilation, to creating reusable visualization components.
Learn how to build reusable visualization components that work anywhere, with any data.
Fly through the code with to-the-point instructions and a healthy dose of interesting banter.
USING REACT WITH D3.JS
Say what you want, not how.
Code once, use everywhere.
Render only the stuff that changes.
