  • This visualization, called code_swarm, shows the history of commits in a software project. A commit happens when a developer makes changes to the code or documents and transfers them into the central project repository. Both developers and files are represented as moving elements. When a developer commits a file, it lights up and flies towards that developer. Files are colored according to their purpose, such as whether they are source code or a document. If files or developers have not been active for a while, they will fade away. A histogram at the bottom keeps a reminder of what has come before.

    this is how it look like with eclipse from

    Webpages as Graphs

    With this funny applet, you can judge of the complexity of a web page by just generating it’s graph! my homepage is way too complex compare to google for example :-)

    What do the colors mean?
    blue: for links (the A tag)
    red: for tables (TABLE, TR and TD tags)
    green: for the DIV tag
    violet: for images (the IMG tag)
    yellow: for forms (FORM, INPUT, TEXTAREA, SELECT and OPTION tags)
    orange: for linebreaks and blockquotes (BR, P, and BLOCKQUOTE tags)
    black: the HTML tag, the root node
    gray: all other tags

    Nothing new some of you will cry, as this java applet is available since 2007.. Yes but..

    The main difference, is that I provide you the last bit of code to make it work on your own server, or locally in any php environment. The magic part that is difficult to get is the function that retrieve the html content of any page and pass it to the applet.

    For this task and since on some web host, the php function furlopen() may be forbidden (I recommend you to disable it to reduce backdoor inclusion), i will present you a solution with CURL

    PHP supports libcurl, a library created by Daniel Stenberg, that allows you to connect and communicate to many different types of servers with many different types of protocols. libcurl currently supports the http, https, ftp, gopher, telnet, dict, file, and ldap protocols. libcurl also supports HTTPS certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading (this can also be done with PHP's ftp extension), HTTP form based upload, proxies, cookies, and user+password authentication. [PHP Manual]&160;

    So I’ve create a small script call display.php that return the content of a webpage

    Get Data From URL With Curl

    $input = $_GET;
    $name = 'url';
    $url = (isset($input[$name]) && 
    $input[$name] !== null) ? $input[$name] :
    ""; $timeout = 10; $show_errors = true; if (function_exists('curl_init')) { return getDataFromUrlWithCurl($url, $timeout, $show_errors); } else { return getDataFromUrlWithFopen($url, $timeout); } /** * CURL function to retrieve data from a URL. */ function getDataFromUrlWithCurl($url, $timeout = 10, $show_errors = false) { $ch = curl_init(); $agent = "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)"; curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, $agent); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0); curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_URL,$url); curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_HTTPGET,1); curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_CRLF,1); curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1); // so it will return data into a
                                                  //variable instead of printing out
       curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_TIMEOUT,$timeout); // give it a time in seconds to reply
       //curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false); //dont validate SSL cert
       $result = curl_exec($ch);
       if ($show_errors && curl_error($ch)) {
          printf("Curl error %s: %s", curl_errno($ch), curl_error($ch));
          print(' <a href="' . $url . '" target="_blank">This is the url</a><br>');
