Hey fellow coders!
I’ve had some half implemented ideas for visualizations and dashboards that use Beeminder data. Some of them have been sitting around since 2015. I’m getting back into vis recently, and was looking forward to prototype once my commitments clear up a bit.
I was incidentally working again with D3 in Observable a few weekends ago, so I gave some thought to this again. Observable makes prototyping D3 stuff a lot easier, so I thought maybe I don’t have to wait months to get back to recreating was I was working on a few years ago.
One thing: Observable relies on CORS to pull from APIs, which I don’t think the Beeminder API currently supports, and might take a while to support.
I was wondering if anyone had any workarounds, besides deploying their own backend. For example, I know the API works with Glitch, which I still haven’t tried.
Just thinking about the easiest way to do this. Thanks!
