Peity and Interactive Data Visualization for the Web

Did I ever tell you that Peity — “a jQuery plugin for generating progressive <svg> pie, donut, bar and line charts” and my most successful open source project to-date (it currently has more than 3500 stars on GitHub) — was mentioned in a real book made of paper and printed by O’Reilly?

This news is a couple of years old now (the book was published in 2013!) but it looks like a second edition is coming in 2017.
