Microcosm - Social Network Simulator

Microcosm is a social network simulator tool that allows your clients to see how well the social network you're trying to build scales with millions of users, millions of likes, millions of follows/unfollows.

To run the Simulation Engine, invoke it like this: node bin/microcosm.js user:create or node bin/microcosm.js simulator:follow

  Blast Radius: PROJECT MICROCOSM by @jbueza
  Usage: microcosm <command>
  where <command> is one of:
  	 user:create, user:delete
  	 simulator:follow, simulator:unfollow, simulator:random
  	 simulator:like, simulator:vote, simulator:view, simulator:share
  	 simulator:gherkin

Note: Please do not use for production use, as I am still taking feedback from several mentors/friends! If you have any feedback on how the engine will use gherkin lexicon to dictate how the simulation engine behaves, please feel free to reach out to me at jbueza@gmail.com.

Cheers and thanks, Jaime
