Alvito - An Algorithm Visualization Tool for Python

Alvito is a tool for creating sorting and search algorithm visualizations and saving them as GIFs. You can find the alvito class in the algorithm_visualizer.py.

Usage

You can run this project and create your own GIFs directly in the browser by clicking this button: Binder, or you can clone the project to your computer and install the required pip packages specified in the requirements text file.

pip install -r requirements.txt

Code Example

from algorithm_visualizer import alvito

avo = alvito()
avo.fps = 1
avo.xlable_fontsize = 12
avo.title_fontsize = 12

array = [1,18,16,2,9,6,12,4,19,17,14,3,10,20,5,13,8,11,15,7]

avo.bubbleSort(array)

The code above will generate the following GIF

Algorithms

Algorithm support so far (more coming soon!):

  • Bubble Sort
  • Selection Sort
  • Insertion Sort

The code for the algorithms used in the tool comes from Problem Solving with Algorithms and Data Structures using Python. This is a great source to learn about algorithms and data structures, check it out!
