2010-03-07 Sunday - Misc. Resources Found

I installed the Pydev Eclipse plug-in today:

Python IDE for Eclipse, which may be used in Python, Jython and IronPython development.

It comes with many goodies such as:

* Code completion
* Code completion with auto import
* Syntax highlighting
* Code analysis
* Go to definition
* Refactoring
* Mark occurrences
* Debugger
* Remote debugger
* Tokens browser
* Interactive console
* and many others...

After installing Pydev, I discovered that there was a keyboard accelerator binding conflict between

ParameterizedCommand(Command(,Open Type,
Open a type in a Java editor,

Binding(CTRL+SHIFT+T, ParameterizedCommand(Command(com.python.pydev.analysis.actions.pyGlobalsBrowserWorkbench,Python Show Class Browser,
Show Class Browser,

resolution: I simply removed the Pydev binding that was defined for the Window scope.

Tulip Graph Visualization Software

Tulip is a software system dedicated to the visualization of huge graphs. It manages graphs with up to 500,000 elements (node and edges) on a personal computer (PIII 600 with 256MB RAM). The Tulip architecture provides the following features: 3D visualizations, 3D modifications, plugin support, support for clusters and navigation, automatic graph drawing, automatic clustering of graphs, automatic selection of elements, and automatic coloring of elements according to a metric.

The research by the information visualization community shows clearly that using a visual representation of data-sets enables faster analysis by the end users. Tulip, created by David AUBER, is a contribution of the area of information visualization, “ InfoViz ”. Even if the Tulip framework allows the visualization, the drawing and the edition of small graphs, all the parts of the framework have been built in order to be able to visualize graphs having more than 1.000.000 elements. Such a visualization system must draw and display huge graphs, allows the navigation through geometric operations as well as the extraction of subgraphs and the enhancement of the results obtained by filtering.
The Tulip architecture provides the following features :

* 3D visualizations
* 3D modifications
* Plug-in support for easy evolution
* Building of clusters and navigation into it
* Automatic drawing of graphs
* Automatic clustering of graphs
* Automatic selection of elements
* Automatic Metric coloration of graphs
