Pie charts did nothing to deserve how you’re treating them
"So if you want to complain about something, complain about the rampant misuse of charts instead. No chart type is good at everything, and charting tools can’t read our minds yet. Pick the chart type that tells your story best, and ameliorates the pitfalls that you want to avoid.

Pie charts are OK. They existed before most of us, and they’ll probably outlive all of us. When we finally read the climate-driven death sentence of our planet in a 100-page report, it will probably have pie charts. So enjoy your artisanal donut charts and your home-baked square pie charts while you can, hipsters. Just kidding. Till then though, you can find me putting gold stars on every good little pie chart I encounter.

Lay off it, friends!"

A Better Way to Code – Mike Bostock – Medium
The first principle of d3.express is reactivity. Rather than issuing commands to modify shared state, each piece of state in a reactive program defines how it is calculated, and the runtime manages their evaluation; the runtime propagates derived state. If you’ve written spreadsheet formulas, you’ve done reactive programming.
In imperative programming, c = a + b sets the current value of c to a + b. This is a value assignment. If a or b changes, c retains its original value until we execute a new value assignment to c. In reactive programming, c = a + b is a variable definition. This means that c is always equal to a + b, even if a or b changes. The runtime keeps the value of c up-to-date.
