>Ray Cromwell has the ability to do amazing things in the browser. We have often linked to his work on Chronoscope and more, and this time he has a screencast showing of Timescope “our charting engine, written in GWT, runnable as Servlet or Android native application, renders huge numbers of points at interactive rates, scriptable, annotatable like Google Maps, and stylable via CSS-like stylesheet mechanism.”
For those who know of Chronoscope, this is the commercial version, big changes include more accurate multiresolution filtering algorithm, Android native version, Chart Server, iPhone integration, synthetic datasets, a number of other things. We eventually hope to include a subset of complete implementation of R in GWT, to allow statistical work to be done totally in browser.
At the 7:20 mark, you can see GSS, which is an implementation of a CSS parsing and cascade engine in GWT, to support our totally custom set of properties, elements, and pseudo-classes.
Very cool indeed Ray.
