Welcome to Timeline Builder, a mobile-first, keyboard and mouse accessible web app that allows anyone to create a web-based timeline of events with full data portability but without any programming knowledge. All you need to do is click below to get started. I suggest first changing "Your Topic" above. Once you are done playing with the app, your data (JSON format) so you don't lose it. Then, download one of my timelines ("A Brief History of Creative Commons" or "A Brief History of Copyright Law") (right-click the link, then 'Save As...'), then import it using below. This will give you a sense of what can be accomplished using this web app. Enjoy!
