#Timelines - not invented here and, it is good

The best #software is used. The new timelines in #Reasonator are available and, it is wonderful. It is yet another way of showing of the data that exists in Wikidata. It is also one area where more data will lead to more interesting information.

This timeline software by the knight lab is open source and, even though it is great, there is room to make it even better. Just try it in Arabic. You would expect the data to go from left to right. It makes sense because the labels do show up in Arabic in the timeline.

What makes this implementation so nice is that all kinds of information relating to a person are included. The Reasonator reasons; it includes even the dates children are born.
