Islandora development visualization

Hit a bit of a wall yesterday getting checksums working when ingesting content into Islandora, so I made a Gource video of the Islandora commits in my fork of the git repo.

Music by RipCD (@drichert) and myself.

How’d I do it?

  1. I wanted to use the Gravatars, so I used this handy little perl script.
  2. Hopped into the Islandora git repo, and ran:
    gource --user-image-dir .git/avatar/ -s 3 --auto-skip-seconds 0.1 --file-idle-time 50 --max-files 500 --disable-bloom --stop-at-end --highlight-users --hide mouse --background-colour 111111 --font-size 20 --title "Islandora Development" --output-ppm-stream - --output-framerate 60 | avconv -y -r 60 -f image2pipe -vcodec ppm -i - -b 8192K ~/Videos/islandora-gource.mp4
  3. Then I used OpenShot to add the music and uploaded to YouTube.
