I think this is an usefull tool for DDJ

Raw is an open web tool developed at the DensityDesign Research Lab
(Politecnico di Milano) to create custom vector-based visualizations on
top of the amazing d3.js library by Mike Bostock. Primarily conceived as
a tool for designers and vis geeks, Raw aims at providing a missing link
between spreadsheet applications (e.g. Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers,
Google Docs, OpenRefine, …) and vector graphics editors (e.g. Adobe
Illustrator, Inkscape, ...).
Raw works with delimiter-separated values (i.e. csv and tsv files) as
well as with copied-and-pasted texts from other applications (e.g.
Microsoft Excel, TextWrangler, TextEdit,…). Based on the svg format,
visualizations can be easily edited with vector graphics applications
for further refinements, or directly embedded into web pages.
Knowing the need of working with sensitive information, the data
uploaded to Raw is processed only by the web browser: no server-side
operation or storage is performed and no one will see, touch or copy
Raw is also highly customizable and extensible, accepting new custom
layouts defined by users. For more information about how to add or edit
layouts, see the Documentation section.
