Making a motion chart
When working with a time-based data often you want to have a view, where the time changes will be visualized. One way of doing this is by using a motion chart that updates over time and that is what we will be creating with this recipe.
We will be using a toolkit for creating an interactive graph named Rickshaw
that can be retrieved from http://code.shutterstock.com/rickshaw/, and is part of the example code as well. Besides that we also need
D3.js to be included, because Rickshaw is built on top of it.
