Vega-Lite 2 BETA

Announcement: The master branch now hosts ongoing Vega-Lite 2.0 pre-release development. We have migrated Vega-Lite to use the new Vega 3 Beta and D3 v4 and include basic composition and interaction features from our research publication. However, some composition and interaction features are still under development.

For a more stable version, please use Vega-Lite v1. We have created branch 1.x as our v1 maintenance branch.

Vega-Lite provides a higher-level grammar for visual analysis, akin to ggplot or Tableau, that generates complete Vega specifications.

You can find more details, documentation, examples, usage instructions, and tutorials on the Vega-Lite website.

Try using Vega-Lite in the online Vega Editor.

Contributions are also welcome. Please see for contribution and development guidelines.


The development of Vega-Lite is led by Kanit "Ham" Wongsuphasawat, Dominik Moritz, Arvind Satyanarayan, and Jeffrey Heer of the University Washington Interactive Data Lab. Please see the contributors page for the full list of contributors.
