Ideas based on chats with Mike Skirpan for GSoC 2015 project:

 

Data Visualization and Sonification with Infusion


Building from Fluid's fluid.model.transformWithRules() and following its Model Relay system for
connecting component endpoints, this project will build a method of connecting an Infusion app to an
arbitrary data source and transforming this data in preparation to be rendered. Too commonly data pipelines
bake in a representational schema that cannot be escaped by a further rendering engine. Otherwise, data is
put into a representational framework (ie., a visualization library) that ties the data transformations to
the specific rendering elements.

The goal of this project will be to build a functional I/O platform for data rendering so that common-type
datasources can be transferred into an application model and transformed into a generic JSON schema that can
further be given rules that transpose the data to a representation.  Be it audio or visual representations,
the platform will utilize the data in kind so as to develop a pattern for developing representational
templates that are agnostic to data sources. This will lead to a friendlier, more accessible approach to
representing data usefully to end-users.
