ABSTRACT
Software evolution is supported by a variety of tools that help developers understand the structure of a software system, analyze its history and support specific classes of analyses. However, the increasingly distributed nature of software development requires basic repository analyses to be always available to developers, even when they cannot access their workstation with full-fledged applications and command-line tools. We present URBANIT, a gesture-based tablet application for the iPad that supports the visualization of software repositories together with useful evolutionary analyses (e.g., version diff) and basic sharing features in a portable and mobile setting. URBANIT is paired with a web application that manages synchronization of multiple repositories.
