Very cool, i said this a while ago but WHEN I GET AROUND TO IT i will host a clone of this to contribute
Anything related to programming and creating software.
FCHAM is a couple of scripts for generating a graph with graphviz of the FChannel network. It started as an innocent attempt to visualize the federation status, but has evolved into a somewhat decent program. You can see the original thread here: https://fchan.xyz/b/HDAMDSZB (though if you browse /b/ you have probably seem it already. Many times. Over and over. People started complaining, so I will spam /prog/ now) FCHAM is made of two scripts: * fetch-data, shell script responsible for downloading all the following.json from all boards from the known instances * make-graph, lua script that parses the json and generates a .dot file used by graphviz' dot filter, it is then used to render the graph There are recipes in Makefile for all the files needed to create the map, so a simple 'make' should execute everything perfectly. You will need graphviz installed on your system to be able to render the graph. lua and curl you may already have. tor (the daemon, not the browser) is an optional dependency if you want to fetch data from tor instances. You can download an archive of FCHAM at http://p6nhckzlonbw72mhxqcyfa474ssavlnud6tvpmhjzf37r2zyz2ommtqd.onion/fcham.pax.xz, read more about it at http://git.p6nhckzlonbw72mhxqcyfa474ssavlnud6tvpmhjzf37r2zyz2ommtqd.onion/fcham/file/README.html, and clone the git repository from http://git.p6nhckzlonbw72mhxqcyfa474ssavlnud6tvpmhjzf37r2zyz2ommtqd.onion/fcham.git. Pic related is the current map as generated by FCHAM ignoring 0x00000000.xyz (which is hidden by default), showing tor instances, hiding unknown instances, and merging /a/+/amh/ /b/+/vip/ and /lit/+/phi/ (the default merges). I think the color scheme is kinda bad, but there are too many instances now and I am bad with colors.
