Gipeda hacking at ZuriHac2015
Gipeda is a dashboard to display performance data. Basically a converter from (Git revision × benchmark name × benchmark value) to shiny webpages.
Gipeda was written with GHC as a customer in mind, and you can see it in action at http://perf.haskell.org/ghc. But it is kept generic and you are free to use it for your own projects as well.
Possible tasks for the hackathon:
- Show a comparison of two arbitrary commits.
- Keeping track of branches and tags.
- Currently, it linearlizes the git history. This could be improved to show the ich history structure of git repository.
- Notifications about regressions by mail or RSS.
- Unify code on the server and the client, possibly using GHCJS.
This is also a nice project if for some weird reason you feel more like hacking JS and HTML than Haskell during ZuriHac.
Unfortunately, I will not be in Zurich in time for the project introduction; hacking on Gipeda will therefore start Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. If you have questions, just talk to Joachim “nomeata” Breitner.
