Tools for Authoring Vega-Lite Visualizations
- Vega-Editor, the online editor for Vega and Vega-Lite. You can also get an output Vega spec from a given Vega-Lite spec as well.
- vega-desktop, a desktop app that lets you open
.vl.jsonto see visualizations just like you open image files with an image viewer. This is useful for creating visualizations with Vega/Vega-Lite locally.
- Voyager (2), visualization tool for exploratory data analysis that blends a Tableau-style specification interface (formerly Polestar) with chart recommendations (formerly the Voyager visualization browser) and generates Vega-Lite visualizations.
- data.world Chart Builder, a chart builder that imports data from queries in data.world. The generated specs can be saved locally or uploaded back to data.world. Project is open source.

Bindings for Programming Languages
- Altair exposes a Python API for building statistical visualizations that follows Vega-Lite syntax.
- Elm-Vega generates Vega-Lite specifications in the pure functional language Elm.
- Altair wrapper in R
- ipyvega supports Vega and Vega-Lite charts in Jupyter Notebooks.
- Vega-Lite for Julia
- Vega-Lite “bindings” for R, create Vega-Lite visualizations in R.

- vega-element is a Polymer web component to embed Vega or Vega-Lite visualization using custom HTML tags.
- marked-vega is a Polymer web component to parse image/code markdowns into Vega and Vega-Lite charts.
- gulp-marked-vega is a gulp plugin (comes with a cli tool also) to replace marked-vega markdown syntax with base64 embedded image tags, so that any standard markdown parser can render the Vega and Vega-Lite charts without modifying their render rules.
