GoCity is an implementation of the Code City metaphor for visualizing source code. GoCity represents a Go program as a city, as follows:

  • Folders are districts
  • Files are buildings
  • Structs are represented as buildings on the top of their files.

Structures Characteristics

  • The Number of Lines of Source Code (LOC) represents the build color (high values makes the building dark)
  • The Number of Variables (NOV) correlates to the building's base size.
  • The Number of methods (NOM) correlates to the building height.

Private Repositories / Localhost

Install gocity:

  • go get -u

Open a local project:

  • gocity open

UI / Front-end

The UI is built with React and uses babylon.js to plot 3D structures. The front-end source code is available in the front-end branch.
