Recommendations for Timeline Generation Software

Postby /tmp » 2017-11-01 18:35

Hello! I'm working on a novel and would like to organize plot elements with a timeline.

So far I have found the creatively named "The TimeLine Project" as a multi-platform GPLv2 Python software Source

Also, there's a LaTeX option known as tickz-package which I may toy around with, an example of which is below:

Code: Select all
\begin{figure*}[htbp]
    \caption{some caption}
    \begin{tikzpicture}
        \draw (0cm, 0cm) -- (15cm, 0cm);
        \foreach \x in {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15} \draw (\x cm, 3pt) -- (\x cm, - 3pt);
        \draw (0cm - 3pt, 0cm + 3pt) -- (0cm, 0cm) -- (0cm + 3pt, 0cm + 3pt);
        \draw (0cm, 0cm) node[above=5pt] {0};
        \draw (5cm, 0cm) node[above=5pt] {100};
        \draw (10cm, 0cm) node[above=5pt] {200};
        \draw (15cm, 0cm) node[above=5pt] {300};
        \fill (12cm, 0cm) circle (2pt);\draw (12cm, 0cm) node[above=5pt] {some text};
    \end{tikzpicture}
\end{figure*}


Has anyone else found anything similar for timeline projects?

This search query returned a surprising amount of relevant-looking results.

The reason why I asked was to start a conversation and share personal experiences with said software.
