Prosoul is a software quality models manager to create, import/export, view and edit models

Project description

Prosoul is a software quality models manager to create, import/export, view and edit models.


The goal of this project is to create a web editor and viewer for software quality models that are used to show metrics in a meaning way. Also, importers and exporters for the different quality models used in the industry will be implemented so they can be used as models or evolved for the creation of new quality models.

In the initial version the metrics supported will be the CROSSMINER ones.

Based on the models, visualizations and assessment for the projects are generated. In the inital version Kibana dashoards will be created using GrimoireLab.

The final goal is to have a tool for “Automatic Project Assessment and Visualization based on Evolved Quality Models”.

The original name for this project was Meditor but is was chaged to Prosoul because meditor already was used in pip.

Import / Export

Import and export for quality models can be done using the web interface or from the command line:

  • Import a model from a OSSMeter JSON file:
prosoul/django_prosoul $ PYTHONPATH=. prosoul/ -f prosoul/data/ossmeter_qm.json --format ossmeter
  • Export a model to a GrimoireLab JSON file:
prosoul/django_prosoul $ PYTHONPATH=. prosoul/ -f prosoul/data/ossmeter_qm_grimoirelab.json --format grimoirelab -m "Default OSSMETER quality model"


  • Python >=3.4
  • setuptools
  • django
  • kidash
  • requests


A draft diagram for the architecture is:


There is a specific guide for using prosoul in CROSSMINER for creating the visualization for a quality model and generating the assessment of the projects in CROSSMINER.

There is a demo online of prosoul for CROSSMINER.


The ROADMAP for Prosoul is based on GitHub milestones. The current active work is done in the issues related to the current milestone.
