Research Software

List of research software currently developed and maintained by Bernhard Rieder

Over the last years, I have been working on quite a number of research tools, mainly for the data driven analysis of social media platforms. My main goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the logics embedded in these platforms and their APIs, but I think that writing research tools is an excellent way to pursue this kind of exploration. Nothing beats first hand experience. Most of my code is available on github and I have instruction videos on my YouTube channel.

These tools are “as is” software, no support is provided. High quality bug reports are much appreciated. Please send bug reports to tools@polsys.net.

Check out other tools developed by the digital methods initiative here.

Depending on availability, I’m interested in participating in research software development on a freelance basis. If you’re looking for consulting or programming capacity in the area of web APIs, (interactive) visualization or data mining (machine learning, clustering, etc.), drop me a line at tools@polsys.net.

I develop and maintain these tools in my spare time. If they are useful for you, please consider to
