Analyzing and visualizing software development

The vizGrimoire project

vizGrimoire (usually pronounced /ˌvɪzɡrɪmˈwɑr/) is a toolset and framework to analyze and visualize data about software development. Currently, it is focused on data produced by the MetricsGrimoire tools (CVSAnalY, Bicho and MailingListStats).

vizGrimoire is promoted by Bitergia, the company providing software develoment analytics services, but it is a project open to the community: you are welcome to participate.

The following is a list of the current set of tools with a brief description. For more information, visit each of tool repositories, and/or read their install and readme files. You can also have a glimpse of the intended vizGrimoire architecture.
