If you've ever wondered how frameworks like Observable Plot, ggplot2, or Vega-Lite work, you've come to the right place! I was wondering the same thing, so I looked at a bunch of implementations, read a bunch of papers, and this is what I came up with. Below, you'll find a walkthrough of the Grammar of Graphics and how you might implement data viz framework based on it. My implementation most closely follows Observable Plot's. First, some dataset imports The Grammar of Graphics (GoG) is a language for defin
«You can configure much more, if needed, but Plot’s goal is to help you get a meaningful visualization quickly.»

How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets the most relevant links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, mark as read, read later, «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
We focus on pieces with long shelf-lives—not news. We determine «timelessness» via a number of metrics, for example, the consumption pattern of links over time.
