Join Ray Villalobos for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating basic selections, part of Data Visualization with D3.js.
…So, now that we've set up our basic project, it's time to get things going.…So, I want to start off by showing you some of D3's DOM selection capabilities.…Now, D3 comes with built-in selectors for DOM elements.…The DOM, by the way,…is the Document Object Model or the structure of any HTML page.…So, on this page right here, we have a tag named body.…And inside that tag we have a series of other tags.…So the first level underneath body is this div of a class container.…So this is the first element after body.…
And inside that container I have a couple of other elements, this h2 right here,…as well as this section.…So this structure that we create when we set up an HTML page, is called a DOM.…Now, let's start off by creating some element on our page, so…that we can target them with D3.…So, I'm going to start off by adding things into this section.…What I'll do is, I'll add a div with a class of item.…And I'm going to need a few of them.…And so I'm going to start typing some names right here.…
