[TODO] SNA Plugin Still Not Available on 8.beta?

Post by elijah » 19 Oct 2011 16:56

It seems like the plugin with all the traditional SNA metrics (the one with the Erdos number statistic) isn't available for .8 is that right? What needs to be done to get it into .8?

That makes me think that there must be a way to manage better the transition of plugins from one Gephi version to the next. It is not that good that almost all plugins get broken each time there is a transition (which happens each year or more frequently).

Is this something worth thinking about?

Yes totally agree, we should get better at that.

- For the plug-ins we know the API didn't change (ex: layouts) we could auto-enable them for the new version
- For the plug-ins we are not sure, have automated tests that would test if the plug-ins code is compiling. For that we would need to incitate authors to put their code in a repository we can access and have the tooling (typically Maven).
- Improvements on the plug-ins website
