explore and visualize relationships between Python objects.
Pyrels is a tool for exploring and visualizing relationships between Python objects. It does so by analysing and converting Python namespaces into GraphViz files in the DOT format. That means it displays relationships like references between Python names and the objects they point to, as well as containment between Python container objects (lists, tuples and dictionaries) and the respective objects they contain. At the moment pyrels is best used on Python data structures, but it is intended to develop it further so that it can also display other types of relationships like inheritance, module imports, etc. One target group for pyrels are article and/or book authors who wish to illustrate Python data structures graphically without spending a lot of time for creating these illustrations manually. Pyrels can help you automate this process.
