--- Comment #6 from Dan Andreescu <dandree...@wikimedia.org> ---
tl;dr; I would be interested in being a mentor here, and probably collaborating
until a solution is reached.

We've done some thinking about this while we developed Limn [1] last year.  I
believe Limn was headed in the wrong direction, but we (team analytics) are
interested in solving this problem and it would be nice to combine efforts with
anyone that is also interested.  Currently, I believe that Vega JS [2] is a
very promising library.  It has a great mixture of simplicity and power.

My personal opinion is that creating and editing infographics would work much
like Visual Editor does.  There would be a simple JSON editor on the front end,
which could evolve over time.  When saved, this would use a server to generate
static infographics for consumption by the cache layer.  The dynamic
infographic could be accessed through a link on the static image.  The cache
could be repopulated with up-to-date infographics periodically if they depend
on external data.  For this vision, Vega JS is quite suitable as it can
generate PNGs server side for example.
