The main use case for Pangea is writing an analysis script, and deploying it in parallel on all the systems in the corpus. The analysis needs to be written only once and can be run on models from corpora written in different languages, since it works with a language-independent meta-model.
The following is a script which is available as
examples/noc.st file in your distribution. It prints to
stdio the system name, and the number of classes in the system.
"Print the number of classes in the system" Script is: [ CommaSeparated values * Pangea model systemName; * Pangea model allModelClasses size printString; print. ].
To deploy the script on all the systems in the corpus and collect the results in a .csv file you run:
pangea run script -c QualitasCorpus-20120401r examples/noc.st > noc.csv
Visualizing the noc.csv we get a glimpse of the sizes of the systems in the corpus:

Pangea runs on a Mac, but should also work on Linux and Windows, as long as
bash is installed. Pangea can consume north of 20GB of space (10G sources and 20G of tools, models, and intermediate representations only for QualitasCorpus).
A list of currently supported software corpora can be found here.
To install Pangea create a working folder, and run the following command:
git clone https://github.com/caracciolo/pangea.git
Since pangea without a corpus, is like corn flakes without milk, now you can query the available corpora:
./pangea corpora Available: QualitasCorpus-20120401r Squeaksource-100 micro-qc Installed: none
The three corpora you see available are the Qualitas Corpus, a corpus of 100 Smalltalk systems, and a small test corpus, named micro-qc. Say that you want to install the Qualitas Corpus. In the Pangea folder you run the following two commands to get it:
./pangea get mse -c QualitasCorpus-20120401r ./pangea make models -c QualitasCorpus-20120401r
This will (1) download the pre-built Moose models (in MSE format), and (2) build Moose images for each project.
Step (2) will create Moose images for all the systems using the latest Moose release. If you want a specific Moose release instead of the latest release (e.g. you want the latest development version), then before running step (2) you should copy that version to the
2.0/tools/image/ folder and name it
If for your analysis you also need the sources of the systems, then you can run:
./pangea get src -c QualitasCorpus-20120401r
Caveat: about 2GB of data will downloaded for the mse models and the same for the sources. Depending on your connection and machine, this can take some time.
