Source code can be found from https://github.com/witheve/Eve At the moment, it is made with: — TypeScript 60.6% — Rust 26.0% — HTML 6.6% — CSS 5.7% — Other 1.1% Eve project is already two years old project, as the first commit (on the GitHub statistics page: https://github.com/witheve/Eve/g... ) has been made in Aug 25, 2013. — Most of the 3640 commits have been done by 3 persons. — Several more of people have made one or more small fixes to the codebase. Based on the commit time punch card, large part of the development has been done during ‘normal’ working time. Their previous project http://lighttable.com was mostly written in Clojure, so it is interesting to see that TypeScript (extended version of JavaScript) was chosen to be the main development language for Eve. Project was originally posted to Product Hunt http://www.producthunt.com/tech/eve one year ago. That pointed to the project release blog post http://www.chris-granger.com/201... telling they had raised $2.3M from Andreessen Horowitz to help turn Eve into a reality.

I don't think I understand this, but it seems powerful and academically interesting!

@chrismessina Actual video example of how current UI for Eve can be used:
Visual presentation of the data structure looks a bit similar to a graph database https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gr... but I’m not sure how similar the actual database implementation is.
Chris MessinaHunter@chrismessina · Product designer & entrepreneur
@autiomaa cool, thanks. So it's providing a visual tool for working with a database of information?
Daniel Schildt@autiomaa · Interaction designer
@chrismessina That too, but they have also implemented their own database engine that is part of the system. Bibliography https://github.com/witheve/Eve/b... includes few hundred research papers that they use as a partial guidelines for the Eve development. Eve is not just a visual programming tool, even while that is part of the system. https://github.com/witheve/Eve/b... has some notes about that.

@autiomaa got it, thanks!
