Social Analytics – An Update
Apart from a couple of fixes (thanks to @bavatar, @jpope and @kevingranade for testing), I'm experimenting with different charting libraries. Yesterday, I pushed the (experimental) "highcharts" branch which uses Highcharts library and the HighRoller PHP wrapper. I'm not entirely sure where I'm going with this, but a "crazy overkill" idea would be to build a swappable backend and let users choose which charting library they like best.
Before I look into this though (if I do this), I'd like to make the HTML data tables more interactive. One thing I have in mind is to make all numbers clickable. Once you click a number, a modal-like HTML window pops up with more information. For example, in the "Hosts you are following" table, if I'd click on "4" next to "identi.ca", it would show me who are the 4 people I'm following that are on identi.ca.
