Include Vega in client-side projects using minimal dependencies.
Vega is a visualization grammar, a declarative format for creating, saving, and sharing interactive visualization designs. With Vega you can describe data visualizations in a JSON format, and generate interactive views using either HTML5 Canvas or SVG.
The vega-lib repository packages up the Vega codebase for use in client-side projects (for example, using Webpack or Browserify) with minimal server-side dependencies. We exclude node-canvas dependencies to remove compilation steps and associated overhead.
Basic Setup and Testing
For a basic setup allowing you to build Vega and run examples:
git clone email@example.com:vega/vega-lib.gitto clone this repository.
yarnto install dependencies. If you don't have yarn installed, see https://yarnpkg.com/en/docs/install.

yarn run buildto build output files.
This repository includes web-based demos within the
test folder. To run these, launch a local web server in the top-level directory for the repo and point your browser to the right place (e.g.,
