P.S. Functionn contains a whole lot more of awesome resources like jStat. There only a fraction of them I can post here at a time. Take a look if you're interested, and subscribe:
What I would really like to see some day is a JS library that extends D3 for graphics and controlling DOM events, that has a good standard library for common statistics (and that is easy to extend), and ideally a possibility to delegate computationally intensive tasks to C (perhaps FFI through Node.js?)
Originally intended to be part of D3, he's now set it up as its own library.
I almost thought they weren't on GitHub.
The library is also funded by the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/home_en.html).
One of my goals was to make it very modular and easily extendable. In the overview page of the documentation I explain how this was accomplished (http://jstat.github.com/overview.html)
Also, there is a sizable amount of dependencies for this library, all due to the use of flot. Since most of the code doesn't use any of the dependencies, I wonder if they would consider releasing any future versions as two parts, jstat.js (containing the number crunching methods) and jstat-flot.js (containing the plotting wrapper methods).
