Codimension is an exciting project!

When I did an introductory programming course a few years ago I discovered the DRAKON flowcharting program, and it was a huge help for planning and visualizing my projects. So I am very excited to see you combine text and flowcharts dynamically in Codimension.

I’ve been looking into other visual programming tools, too. For example, are you familiar with Stride and its frame-based editor? (See also the related research papers.)

I realize it might not work, but I am trying to get Codimension running on Windows 10 in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) , plus using the VcXsrv X Server to enable the WSL to run graphical apps.

I’m getting the following error, and I would be very grateful for any suggestions.


This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb"
in "".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Aborted (core dumped)

Here’s how I set things up:

Installed Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS on the Windows Subsystem for Linux.

Installed and ran VcXsrv.

Ran Ubuntu and entered the following Bash commands:

Confirmed that the X server is working:

$ sudo apt install x11-apps
$ export DISPLAY=:0
$ xeyes

Installed packages required by Python3:

$ sudo apt install python3-pip
$ sudo apt install python3-venv

Installed packages required by Codimension:

$ sudo apt install g++
$ sudo apt install python3-dev
$ sudo apt install libpcre3-dev
$ sudo apt install graphviz

Created and activated a Python Virtual Environment for Codimension:

$ python3 -m venv codimension
$ source codimension/bin/activate

Updated pip for Python:

$ pip install --upgrade pip

Installed Codimension:

$ pip install wheel
$ pip install PyQt5
$ pip install codimension

Ran Codimension:

$ codimension

Error message:


This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb"
in "".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.

(P.S. When previewing my post, the Edit button didn’t work to return me to editing. Luckily, navigating back in the browser history and then forward again restored my draft.)

Thanks for developing this amazing program! smiley
