Dev Build Status Coverage

UnfoldMakie allows many visualizations for ERP and "Unfolded"-models. Building on the Unfold and Makie, it grants users highly customizable plots.

The toolbox requires a Makie-Backend to be loaded, e.g. using CairoMakie

Some plotting functions require data-frames, with fields like :estimate or :time.

The supportet visualizations are:

  • Designmatrices
  • Line Plots
  • Butterfly Plots
  • ERP Images
  • Topo Plots
  • Parallel Coordinates Plot

Coordinated Multiple Views

Code Notes

The code files can be found in the src folder.

Documentation Notes

The documentation can be found in the doc folder. We use Documenter.jl and plan to use Literate.jl for future usage. In the src folder contained within it exists as "raw" .md files and in the build folder contained within it exists as .html after running the make.jl file. These are specifically the "index" file with more files in sub folders.
