Chart-generating function outside Observable

I’m trying to translate a notebook I’ve made into plain javascript to include it in a webpage. I’d like to use a function similar to the calendar one found in this notebook (Calendar / D3 / Observable), that is with destructured arguments, and reusable.

My problem is that I don’t know what happens in Observable after svg.node() has been returned. My attempts with plain d3 in a webpage have all failed. I tried myFunction ) and d3.selection.append( myFunction ).
