There is a frontend application included built with Parcel and React using Recharts.

The application is still a work in progress.

The deployment is taken care of by Vercel.

If you want to experience the full capabilities of this package locally then you need to create your own Vercel account, install the now cli and run now dev after you linked your clone/fork with Vercel.

More on this later.
