On a mission to help teams communicate more effectively with data.

Observable is redefining how businesses use data by providing developers with the tools they need to create their best data apps, dashboards, and reports.

Purpose-built for communicating with data

From the creators of D3, Observable was built to help teams communicate more effectively with data. Effective presentation of data is critical for deep insight, nuanced understanding, and informed decision making.

Observable provides an end-to-end solution for developers. Notebooks support fast, ephemeral, ad hoc data exploration. The foundation of the next-generation stack for data apps, Observable Framework provides everything developers need to build the best data apps their team has ever seen. Observable also hosts projects, so teams can securely share data apps and discover deeper insights together.

Global community of data practitioners

When you use Observable, you join a global community of hundreds of thousands of data teams and developers. Gain access to templates and examples you can build from, learn from others, and receive support in our community Slack and forum.

Powered by community, Observable is an end-to-end solution where developers can come together to make sense of the world with data.
