Hooke is a force spectroscopy data analysis package. For example, Hooke can extract unfolding forces from your experimental data. You can then fit the unfolding forces to models using my sawsim simulator. Of course, some experiments (e.g. force clamp) need no Monte Carlo analysis, so for those, Hooke alone provides a complete analysis package.

Getting started

I've tested Hooke on Gentoo and Debian, and I've got an ebuild in my Gentoo overlay. It should also run fine on Windows, etc., but I don't have easy access to Windows boxes with Python, so I don't test it there as often.

See the README, manual, and PyPI page for more details.

Since I publish a lot of Git packages, I was interested to read about Joey Hess' rel=vcs-* microformat. I think recording the location of the repo sorcing a page is a great idea, but with the link stashed in the page header, I could easily browse on by without ever noticing that the link existed.

This looks like the same sort of problem that the Semantic Radar extension was designed to solve, except the SR extension notifies you about RDF files (SIOC, FOAF, DOAP, etc.). I've altered the SR extension to identify the rel=vcs-* tags.

The rel-vcs extension places an icon in your Firefox statusbar which goes "hot" when a page has rel=vcs-* tags and "cold" otherwise. When the icon is "hot", you can click on it to pop up a list of rel-vcs links. Clicking on an item in the list will open that URI in a new tab. Since Firefox can't speak git:// etc., the new tab will mostly be useful as a source of the URI for copy/pasting into a git clone ... call or similar. Alternatively, you can consider the "hot" icon as a suggestion to use webcheckout or other rel=vcs-* consumer on the source page.
