Description
-----------

`toscawidgets2 (tw2)`_ aims to be a practical and useful widgets framework
that helps people build interactive websites with compelling features, faster
and easier. Widgets are re-usable web components that can include a template,
server-side code and JavaScripts/CSS resources. The library aims to be:
flexible, reliable, documented, performant, and as simple as possible.

The JavaScript InfoVis Toolkit (`thejit`_) is a javascript library that
provides web standard based tools to create interactive data visualizations
for the Web.  It is pretty, interactive, and fast.

This module, tw2.jit, provides `toscawidgets2 (tw2)`_ widgets that render `thejit`_ data visualizations.

Sampling tw2.jit in the WidgetBrowser
-------------------------------------

The best way to scope out ``tw2.jit`` is to load its widgets in the
``tw2.devtools`` WidgetBrowser.  To see the source code that configures them,
check out ``tw2.jit/tw2/jit/samples.py``

To give it a try you'll need git, python, and `virtualenvwrapper
<http://pypi.python.org/pypi/virtualenvwrapper>`_.  Run::

    $ git clone git://github.com/toscawidgets/tw2.jit.git
    $ cd tw2.jit
    $ mkvirtualenv tw2.jit
    (tw2.jit) $ pip install tw2.devtools
    (tw2.jit) $ python setup.py develop
    (tw2.jit) $ paster tw2.browser
