The motivation behind obsession with these manically large graphs is explained in this previous post of mine. The current post’s purpose is to instead link to the (finally) working code for generating the graphs. I have created a project page at Launchpad for this little application. The trunk contains the most recent code, which is still in its nascent form but works pretty well given an installation of
Python GtkMozembed and
pydot. I might port the application to Windoze in future provided I get the time for it.
Starting with the tradition of linking to Inspirated Code subsection, latest updates about the application shall be posted on this page.
And as is the custom, the image itself:
