Historique is a new web application to make interactive narrative charts. It lets you create events with dates, people with pictures and displays everything on various timelines.

It was originally created to visualise the story of the research institute where I studied. In order to demo the concept, I wrote a generic applications and worked on a couple of instances (Yesstory, and this one). Possible applications include:
- family history (showing weddings, births, etc)
- organisations (creations, milestones, employees)
- novels, films (chapters, scenes, characters)
- Bands (albums, concerts)
The technologies used include: Django, Postgres, D3.js, nginx, bootstrap, heroku.
