wikipulse is a simple visualization of edits to various major language wikipedias using node.js. The app connects to mediawiki IRC chatrooms where article edits are announced by a bot, and keeps track of the edits in redis. It also runs a webserver on the port specified in config.json.

  1. sudo aptitude install redis-server nodejs npm
  2. npm install
  3. node wikipulse.js
  4. point your browser at localhost:3000

Thanks to Dario Taraborelli of the Wikimedia Foundation for the idea.
