🔗New Jekyll Project With No Theme and No Posts, Just Scafolding
I use Jekyll to make this site. I've toyed with converting the site to a Wordpress site but I much prefer writing in a text editor. I also love that I can write
jswherever I want in a file with syntax highlighting. I also use Jekyll to quickly prototype ideas. For this I'm looking for a bare bones Jekyll install.
🔗Django View that returns JSON with a relationship
I am starting to really like Django development. I'm not a python developer and I am by no means a "full stack" developer, but I keep finding ways to make things in Django without much effort.

🔗D3js River flows
I'm working on a website for a rafting non-profit. I thought it would be cool if they could display the flow data for local rivers. I also thought this would be good time for me to learn more about D3js and the USGS instantaneous flow data API.
For some reason, in the winter I get the urge to learn something new. This year, I'm attempting to pick up Django again (gave an effort a year ago too). One of the things I wanted to better understand is how to implement database relationships.
🔗Colorado: Hex Plots, APIs, and D3js
After my last blogpost I was a little frustrated at how poorly the title text resized using ggplot and ggsave. It was a minor issue to be honest, but I figured I could learn something new by exporting the data as geojson and plotting it using D3 js. So here it goes.

🔗Django Getting Started
My notes on learning Django. I'm using this Django Tutorial.
🔗D3:Basic Line Chart
🔗D3.js: Basic ScatterPlot
I've made a few bar charts up to this point. But really what I want to do is plot data over time. We need to figure out how to add x and y axis and work with x and y coordinates. The next logical step then, is to make a scatterplot.
🔗D3.js: Notes on my first outing
🔗D3.js Next Steps: SVG
So the next big steps in making charts is instead of using html elements, d3 works really well with svg elements. But even though svg elements are a flexible for making graphics, not that many people are familiar with them so they add another level of confusion to the process. So let's start at the beginning with what an svg element is.
🔗Vue and Axios
My notes on getting up and running with vue and axios. this is also the first step in turning my River Flow app which queries the USGS instantaneous flow data from a non server rendering non-route serving app to a Nuxt.js Universal Application (meaning it is rendered on the server before it is served).
