Vega-Lite filter transforms must have the filter property describing the predicate for the filtering condition.

Property Type Description
filter Predicate

Required. The filter property must be a predication definition, which can takes one of the following forms:

1) an expression string, where datum can be used to refer to the current data object. For example, {filter: "datum.b2 > 60"} would make the output data includes only items that have values in the field b2 over 60.

2) one of the field predicates: equal, lt, lte, gt, gte, range, oneOf, or valid,

3) a selection predicate, which define the names of a selection that the data point should belong to (or a logical composition of selections).

4) a logical composition of (1), (2), or (3).
