I’ve been trying to come up with some sort of interface for visually representing and exploring all of the causal relationships in the Dhamma and discovering relevant suttas.
My first attempt at this is the following: https://kumu.io/sjayasinghe/dhamma#nidana
However, I’m finding the options provided by kumu to be somewhat limiting and considering building something on my own.
Bhante @sujato mentioned that a REST API is being developed for SC. This will be quite useful for the project I’m working on. Will @blake be able to give me the specification for the API? I might also be able to help out with the backend development if needed.
Also I’m open to advice about how best to visually represent the different elements/relationships. Here is a gallery of different types of visualizations for inspiration: https://github.com/d3/d3/wiki/Gallery
Currently thinking something like this would be ideal: http://bl.ocks.org/robschmuecker/7880033
