Interactive lets you fly through a software galaxy

This is a fun one. Software Galaxies by Andrei Kashcha visualizes popular software package managers as interactive galaxies. Each node is a package and connections indicate dependencies between packages. Use the keyboard and mouse to explore the 3-D world, rotating and shifting through clusters in each galaxy. Mouse over nodes to see what you’re looking at.

I don’t know much about the makeup or structure of the package managers, but it’s fun to fly around nevertheless. It feels like a game.

Find out more about the process or download the code on Github. [Thanks, Andrei]
