>> Implementation of Layered Gramamar of Graphics <https://gist.github.com/AjayRamanathan/c84a4641836700a2547b> - chinu <https://github.com/AjayRamanathan/Plot>
I see the last commit was made on 30 June and the README says

> Working on a implementation of layered grammar of graphics. Work in progress, Nothing to see here, Move on.

I don’t wish to be judgemental but this rather looks like the goal was never achieved?
