You can too, but you might be put off by the library’s reputation for a steep learning curve. Fortunately that reputation is not well-deserved. There are only a few key concepts underlying D3.js, and once you grasp those, you’ll find that D3.js has very few limitations.

Rather, it describes the overall philosophy behind D3.js and the key principles essential to understanding and using it.
