This is what I'm trying to accomplish:
In this example, I have a starting date (1º Jun 2011), an ending date (1º Jul 2012) and multiple events between this range.
Each event is related to one day of the calendar (although it is possible to have many events on a single day).
This data is fetched from a MySQL DB.
Any help or suggestion will be highly appreciated.
I recently had to do something similar. I ended up writing a d3 plugin that could handle this case among a few others. https://github.com/jiahuang/d3-timeline
I'm pretty new to D3 as well, but I hope it's useful.
