New Parameters, Plugins and More in ipyvizzu-story 0.10

Introducing ipyvizzu-story version 0.10 – another stride forward in crafting compelling data narratives. Let’s dive into the details that set this version apart.

Seeker - Empower Your Data Presentations

Pause at pivotal moments, rewind your animation for a thorough understanding or slowly move through transitions to ensure every viewer is on the same page. This level of control ensures that your viewers are not just watching but truly comprehending and engaging with your data story.

New Parameters - Fine-Tune Your Charts

  • Use the unit parameter to interpret data accurately across various data structures. Explore all the options in our code reference.

  • Dynamically adjust animation speed using the speed parameter.
  • Enhance your visualizations with subtitles and captions. Customize them to seamlessly fit your design.

Plugins - A New Dimension of Customization

With version 0.10 of ipyvizzu-story, we’ve introduced the plugin() method, enabling the use of built-in or custom-made plugins. As of now, we’re starting with a single one, but we’re focused on continuously developing and adding more to our collection.

Take a look at our example demonstrating the drop shadow plugin designed to add drop shadows to your chart markers.

Further Advancements

  • We’ve refined event handling, providing detailed information in draw events (e.g., position, size, or values), and event objects now include triggered chart elements.
  • The ipyvizzu version under ipyvizzu-story was upgraded to 0.7.x (Vizzu-lib to 0.9.x), focusing on stability and performance; plus, we’ve addressed various bugs and made optimizations to enhance reliability.

For a detailed list of changes, refer to our complete release notes.

We hope with these exciting upgrades, ipyvizzu-story becomes an even more valuable asset in your toolkit for creating engaging and interactive data stories.
