Show HN: Debugger that generates video visualizations for algorithm learning

  • A simple Python debugger and profiler that generates animated visualizations of program flow.
  • All of the debugger's subcommands and options are documented in the usage help, which is readily available on the command line.
  • It is possible to generate videos live while running the debugged program, but this is discouraged because the overhead of video creation inflates execution times greatly and thus ruins profiler results.
  • The default config documents the available options, which can be customized in an minimal overlay config without having to duplicate the entire config.
  • An example of a simple overlay is the config used to generate official demo videos for embedding in READMEs. This simple config increases the speed (FPS) slightly and adds an intro screen at the beginning of the video.
  • Once your contribution meets the guidelines, open a pull request to make things official.

I See What You’re Saying: Sentiment Analysis With OpenTok and Azure Face API

  • In the root of the video-sentiment folder, create an index.html file and copy the following to it.
  • The streams array will hold all active participant streams so we can access them to capture images to send to the Azure Face API.
  • This adds a footer at the bottom of the page with an "Analyze" button and an unordered list that we'll use as a legend between emojis and sentiments.
  • Next, it draws a capture of the stream to the new canvas and sends an XMLHttpRequest to the Azure Face API with the image it created.
  • Now when we open the index.html page in our browsers we can press the "Analyze" button to see what emotion Azure's Face API has identified.
  • For instance, if Azure Face API recognizes two faces in the frame it will return data for both, but our code currently only adds an emoji for the first.

'Cowards': Eddie Gallagher tears into Navy SEALs who testified against him and discloses information that could endanger those on active duty

  • Retired Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher, who was acquitted of brutal war crimes, posted a video on social media on Monday, denigrating former teammates who testified against him by labeling them "cowards" and potentially endangering them by divulging sensitive information, including their names, photos, and statuses.
  • What's especially alarming about Gallagher's video is what comes next: videos of Navy investigators interviewing his fellow SEALs overlaid with the names, faces, and status of members of his former platoon.
  • Publicly sharing this information violates the group's creed, which says in part that each member will "draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates." And Gallagher may well have jeopardized the safety of those Navy SEALs who are on active duty, according to the San Diego Union Tribune.
