-# Gephi - The Open Graph Viz Platorm
+# Gephi - The Open Graph Viz Platform
[Gephi](http://gephi.org) is an award-winning open-source platform for visualizing and manipulating large graphs. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Localization is available in French, Spanish, Japanese, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese and Czech.
-- **Fast** Powered by a built-in OpenGL engine, Gephi is pushing the envelope on very large networks. Visualize networks up to a million elements. All actions (e.g. layout, filter, drag) run in real-time.

## Developer Introduction
-Gephi is developed in Java and use OpenGL for its visualization engine. Built on the top of Netbeans Platform, it follows a loosely-coupled, modular architecture philosophy. That permits to build large applications and make it grow in a sustainable way. Gephi is split into modules, which depend on each other through well-written APIs. Plugins are allowed to reuse existing APIs, create new services and even replace a default implementation by a new one.

### Create Plug-ins
-Gephi is extensible and lets can create plug-ins to add new or modify existing features. You can create a new layout algorithm, a metric, support a new file format or database, create a filter, a tool or modify the visualization.
