HistropediaJS Mobile Demo BETA

What is HistropediaJS

HistropediaJS is a JavaScript Library (Web development software package) designed to allow you to visualise your existing content as interactive timelines. The software works by taking your content (data) and rendering it as interactive timelines that can be added to an existing web page, used to create a full screen experience, or even setup to run offline on an interactive touch display at your premises (ideal for museums and exhibitions).

Thanks to a wide range of built in options, it is easy to customise the style and functionality of the timelines to suit the needs of your content.

About This Demo

This is a demo of a HistropediaJS timeline, optimised for use on a mobile device. It includes touch gestures such as swipe to change event (portrait mode) and pinch and zoom (landscape mode). The mobile version offers a different experience to the complete desktop version of HistropediaJS. To see the desktop version of this demo (including an example of embedded timelines) visit (from a desktop or laptop).


UI Elements

HistropediaJS is a light-weight and streamlined product designed to allow you to easily connect your own page elements to the timeline. The html elements on this demo such as menus, filters pages and pop-up screen are basic elements we have created to better show you the inner working of the HistropediaJS.


Data and Filtering

This demo has been created using sample data that was readily available from Wikipedia and Wikidata; it is a taste of what HistropediaJS is capable of, using a small selection of publicly available data.

The true power of HistropediaJS is harnessed by using it with YOUR data, where the filters and colour codes available are only limited by the data that is available and your imagination!
