Making nice interactive data visualizations in the browser should be easy and fun! Let's explore tweets with simple IPython notebooks, a Blaze interface and Bokeh plots!

Bokeh is a Python interactive visualization library that targets modern web browsers for presentation. Its goal is to provide elegant, concise construction of novel graphics in the style of D3.js, but also deliver this capability with high-performance interactivity over very large or streaming datasets.

Blaze provides a uniform and adaptable interface to access a variety of backends, which include streaming Python, Pandas, SQLAlchemy, and Spark.
