vegalite: Tools to Encode Visualizations with the 'Grammar of Graphics'-Like 'Vega-Lite' 'Spec'

The 'Vega-Lite' 'JavaScript' framework provides a higher-level grammar for visual analysis, akin to 'ggplot' or 'Tableau', that generates complete 'Vega' specifications. Functions exist which enable building a valid 'spec' from scratch or importing a previously created 'spec' file. Functions also exist to export 'spec' files and to generate code which will enable plots to be embedded in properly configured web pages. The default behavior is to generate an 'htmlwidget'.
