The Miso Project - Dataset Library
Dataset is a JavaScript client-side data transformation and management library. Dataset makes managing client-side data easy by handling loading, parsing, sorting, querying & manipulating data from all sorts of sources. The Miso Project is a collaboration between Bocoup and the Guardian Interactive Team.
A d3.chart based chart that can be used as the basis for all other d3.charts. It provides convenience functionality like handling dimensions as well as handling modes.
A collection of svg-based pattern fills that can be used both as SVG patterns defs and CSS background image urls. Also providing an example of how one might use pattern fills with d3.js.
Deck.js Codemirror Extension
This Deck.js extension integrates a codemirror editor into your deck.js slides. Additionally, it allows the codemirror blocks to be runnable within the slides, for extreme demo time awesomeness.
Startup Data Trends
Startup Data Trends is an interface to browsing the publicly visible startups on AngelList by any intersection of Market and Geography. It's a Backbone.js application that we open sourced.

Textkit is a set of command line tools for text processing and analysis. You can use it to do basic natural language processing from the command line.
Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.
