With Getaviz you can solve software engineering problems visually by exploring software artifacts in 2D, 3D, and virtual reality. Among other things it provides proper visualizations for identifying and refactoring antipatterns, locating runtime bottlenecks, assessing software quality, and tracking changes across multiple versions. To get a first impression, have a look at our showcases that are available online. You can adopt the visualizations as well as the user interface according to your needs. Getaviz visualizes the structure and behavior of several programming languages (Java, Ruby, PHP, and C#) and can enrich these visualizations with evolutional information from git and svn repositories. They can be explored via browser, HTC Vive, or Oculus Rift. We support many different visualizations, e.g., Recursive Disk (2D and 3D), City, City Floors, City Bricks, and many more.
How do I get set up?
Clone this repository and follow the instructions under Installation & Setup. Each subdirectory of this repository represents a standalone component of Getaviz. It contains a separate README.md with further instructions and documentation.
Please have a look at our Wiki which contains many additional information. However, documentation is still incomplete. Feel free to open an issue if you have any question!
Getaviz is mainly developed by the research group Visual Software Analytics at Leipzig University. Currently, four main developers are contributung actively to Getaviz:
