d3.js – Automatic label placement with d3-labeler

d3.js v3 + tinker10/D3-Labeler: D3 plug-in for automatic label placement using simulated annealing.

Trying to get good auto-placing of labels on a map.

Am I doing something wrong? It doesn't completely avoid overlaps...
I don't want to have to manually go in and fix overlaps. That way these SVGs can be exported automatically by a build system.

⚠️ Give it a refresh so that the webfont loads from cache.
I didn't take the time to fix orchestration here because I have Montserrat v5 installed, I don't care about running it on the web.

Slick Scrollbars Userstyle

Slick Scrollbars Userstyle

Replace the appalling default Windows scrollbars with these good ones.

Slick Scrollbars Userstyle Demo

They are thin and unobtrusive but by using border: 5px solid transparent they are just as easy to hit.
No need to change width on hover and reflow contents!

Gulp replace only relevant files

gulp-replace only relevant files

gulp replace only relevant files demo

Piping to gulp.dest would re-write all input files. This checks for the pattern first and only passes along files that actually need to be processed, avoiding unnecessary overwriting with the same content. A benefit is that your files' timestamps stay meaningful.
