I have recently been introduced to the protovis visualization library, and I find aspects of it to be incredibly appealing for certain visualizations that don’t fit some of the canonical chart types.
Has anyone ever thought of porting the API from protovis and using the MPL backends to perform the rendering? Is anyone interested in potentially working on a port? I was thinking we’d initially start with the static functionality, and ultimately also port the interaction if there is enough interest.
