D3.js tutorial - Part 1 - Start with D3.js

D3.js is a JavaScript library for online data visualisation. It helps you creating HTML, SVG, and CSS charts.

To use the D3.js library on a web page, you need to include the following line in your page header:

<script src="https://d3js.org/d3.v5.min.js"></script>

Here is a typical html starting template:

    <!-- Load d3.js v5 -->
    <script src="https://d3js.org/d3.v5.min.js"></script>        
    <!-- Div to manipulate -->
    <div id="d3"></div>

      // Add text to the div
      d3.select('#d3').text('Hello world!')
