To run

The script was written to run on Windows so you'll need to tweak a few things for OSX, to run:

  1. Grab Code Maat from here and move the .jar and .bat file to C:\codemaat - the script expect it to live at C:\codemaat, change path in script as needed
  2. Add to your path
  3. Add maat.bat from C:\codemaat to your path
  4. Create a folder in C:\codemaat\analysis and copy the d3 folder and index.html into it
  5. Install Cloc globally, 'npm i cloc -g' -
  6. Install Python 2.7 and make sure Python is on your path, confirm with 'python --version'
  7. cd into the repo to run the analysis on
  8. Run using the parameters below
  9. cd to where your analysis was copied to, C:\codemaat\analysis\ by default
  10. D3 will try to load a file called analysis_visualisation.json by default which is set in index.html, if you change the file prefix with the -p parameter, make sure to update this the filename in index.html
  11. Run a local server in that folder using Python for instance, > python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000
  12. Hit localhost:8000 to see the D3 hot spot visualisation


-fp | --prefix Prefix to add to output files i.e. 'myorganisation_frequency.csv' - defaults to 'analysis'

-vp | --vispath Path to save the visualisation JSON file to
