Code swarm visualizes the history of commits in a software project. What’s really neat is that one of the projects that code swarm profiled was Eclipse (SDK). So if you look at the code swarm visualization of the Eclipse SDK, you get to see some cool things. In the beginning, you can see DJ and John Arthorne battling to enter the CVS nexus first:
After that, a lot more people join the Eclipse party:
I’m a big fan of visualization so it’s always cool to come across things that try to give us any insight into the crazy world of open-source development. For more fun, you can look at the other visualizations on the code swarm site and compare them to the Eclipse one.
