Planet for Revision Control?

Postby qubodup » 05 Apr 2011, 09:39

There are many tools to track open source game projects' code repositories: http://www.ohloh.net/ , http://cia.vc/ and host-specific tools but no way to view or compare all foss game projects. Is there use for comparing repositories at all?

I stylized planet (the software we use for planet and devplanet) and added a few cia.vc feeds. What do you think?

It looks nice and I think it will be fun to follow.
Maybe a "more" link at the end of the message to expand the message so you can read more/the complete message?

I am now investigating how to visualize this stuff..

Here is a view of the planet when it shows all commits (up to 30) per project during the last 24 hours:

confusing no?

My main source for inspiration on visualizing will be probably https://github.com/blog/39-say-hello-to ... visualizer

Looks rather good, I'd like to see this in addition to FGDPlanet ;)

Here are 3 horrible mockups made in Inkscape. Don't worry. None of these could become the final version.

Do like the idea but what would you use for drawing the graph ? The one mentioned in github.com seems to use flash which would not be a good idea I guess, there are quite a few comments given therein. Overall like the idea of visualization.

I took a step back and investigated simple lists a little more (getting into twitter helped liking list more I think).

That looks very nice, but it'd be useful to see what commit belongs to what project, I mean it was hard to refresh in my memory Unknown Horizon icon :)

The project name gets shown when mouse hovers over the icon. Would that be enough?

Here's a demo (not getting updated) http://qubodup.net/rcsp-demo/index30.html

I'm not sure what goal have you got creating this planet.
Comparing repos? Not sure it is convenient in its today's design. Well, showing a name of a project when mouse hovers over the icon is better than nothing, but in my view it is still a bit messy. These icons are rather small and the list is too long to be able to compare something.
What do you think about it?
However, I really appreciate your work, it collects useful information for geeks :D

To be honest, I have no idea what this might be useful for.

Moativate developers by having a real-time listing of their activity, along with other's activity?

Give contributors an overview of what projects are being developed actively?

Maybe this point is right.
Anyway, it can be a useful way to store commit logs in one place too.

Here's a version with names in the table.

feels cluttered.

I would move the icons to the left of the names, maybe the "clutterness" is removed then...

The first version is much better IMO. (EDIT: just to be clear, I mean http://qubodup.net/rcsp-demo/indexINC.html )
As for the feed, looks okay from here, but I'd say 20 or so items would do :D

In my view, http://qubodup.net/rcsp-demo/indexINC.html is better.
Not sure if that feed is ok, because I don't use feeds, but may be it is a good time to start doing it? :)

I second sireus and KroArtem.
The feed looks right IMO; I just don't know whether it may still need some visual enhancement...

Visual enhancements to the atom feed?

I added icons to it. Can't imagine anything else to add. :)

Or are you talking about the planet (html page of the feed aggregator)

to enable the script on sf.net:

Nice!
Two problems though:
1) The feed (http://planetrev.freegamedev/atom.xml) forwards to the www. subdomain, which doesn't exist.
2) It might not be obvious that the icons link to the project sites.

Looks rather good, only one question: how many projects does this planet control?
