    A JavaScript API for creating Vega-Lite JSON specifications. Vega-Lite is a high-level grammar for visual analysis that generates complete Vega specifications.

    With the Vega-Lite API, you can write JavaScript code like this:

    vl.markBar().data('data/movies.json').encode(
      vl.x().fieldQ('IMDB_Rating').bin(true),
      vl.y().count()
    )

    To produce Vega-Lite JSON like this:

    {
      "mark": "bar",
      "data": {"url": "data/movies.json"},
      "encoding": {
        "x": {
          "bin": true,
          "field": "IMDB_Rating",
          "type": "quantitative"
        },
        "y": {
          "aggregate": "count",
          "type": "quantitative"
        }
      }
    }
