collector.py uses Python3.6 with requests, BeautifoulSoup and lxml to periodically collect JSON snapshots of the Hacker News front page.

analyzer.R uses R with jsonlite and ggplot2 to produce PNG graph images from the produced JSON files.

Rendering the PNGs into a full video then looks like this:
