@George, the canvas rendering would probably make certain types of
animation more difficult than an svg/d3 plot. Then again, canvas rendering
gives you enormous flexibility.
I quite like genometools <http://genometools.org/annotationsketch.html> (no
affiliation or collaboration), perhaps we could just piggy-back on the svg
generated by their
The ruby/python/lua/C APIs already exists (and are quite good). It just
depends on how broad the project becomes. There are certainly be many
classes plots that wouldn't be possible using only this approach.
At the very least, we could take design notes from these guys. To my eyes,
it has a great clean aesthetic.
