Wikipedia History Visualization

Experimental visualization of Wikipedia page history with the Raphael.js framwork, done for an article. See sample output below.

How it works

There are some rough, procedural, stupid, etc Ruby scripts in the scripts folder, have a look and you can try it out.

First, the wikipage_to_git.rb script loads XML export with Wikipedia history (see comments inside how to get it) into a Git repository.

Then, git_to_*.rb scripts converts some interesting information from the data, which we can very conveniently grab via Git commands, into JSON.

And, lastly, timeline.html loads the JSON and displays it.
