Hi everyone! In my continuing saga of translating
index.html's into observable notebooks I want to create buttons that impact the plot - and this finally forced me to actually try to grasp what
viewof actually does
In the little notebook here I leveraged
viewof to get my little circles to change color on click. It seems like viewof is used to enable what I first tried to do - create a global function to be used with an event handler.
I guess I was wondering if there are ways I can improve on this to make why or when you’d use
viewof more obvious? Or maybe I’ve missed the mark on what
viewof does entirely?
I think a little notebook like this will be helpful in the “translation” of observable-ifying d3 (at least for me ) so any feedback is appreciated! Thank you !!
