Flourish Review: Flexible Online Visualization with Templates and No Coding

November 1, 2018


The Process  /  ,

For several years now, applications sprung up promising to make online visualization without code easy to do. They tended to feel like one-off projects or were a bit janky with usability. It feels like we might be at a turning point though with tools finding a balance between ease of use and flexibility.

Over the next few months, I’ll be looking more closely at the available apps to see what works and what doesn’t. In this issue, I start with Flourish.
