A large friendly ecosystem of interactive browser-based interactive visualisation tools built on top of D3
The result is a kind of scientific workbook with a unique set of strengths and weaknesses.
- “More” interactive than most; the tools can be executed in the browser and that means that interative user widgets are easy
- Light dependencies; it seems to run without a complicated install package like, e.g. python alternatives, and there is a free host for notebooks
- visualisations are rather pretty
- If one of the default visualisations works for you, great, but if not, building a new one is tedious

Observable Plot for Mathematicians
Mark McClure explains Observable Plot for mathematicians. tl;dr: It is feasible but we are not the target audience so there is a lot of manual labour. His Adaptive plotter deos a lot of it. See, e.g. his lecture on the normal model.
Transforms are a workhorse for some data processing.
