Visualization of nested objets.

Project description


Visualization of nested objects. The main output is a circular packing in Tkinter with an "hover interaction". By hovering over the circles, the user can peek at the content.


Example of nobvisual on a folder structure. Three subfolders show a similar content. Yellow circles are binary files, blue are ASCII files.

This last example is for a nested object build on a folder structure, but nob visual output can be run on various nested objects, particularly or JSON or YAML contents.

See the full online documentation on ReadTheDocs.

> pip install nobvisual
