Code base comparison, made in Blender

I was commissioned to make a little animation for Kite Programming on the subject of a code base comparison not long ago. Fully made in Blender ofc.

A codebase is basically ... we'll let's ask our big ol' friend Wikipedia: "...a codebase is a collection of source code used to build a particular software system, application, or software component. Typically, a codebase includes only human-written source code files. ..."

(PS: I wasn't responsible for the pop up "link in description")

As this was a client-commissioned project, Blender was not included. Does anyone know how many lines of code the 'trunk' version has nowadays?

ah let's face it, you don't want to read my life story. or do you: I was born in 2990 when Blender (the program I am using) is actually called Adobe 3000. I have traveled back in time to prevent the events leading to the acquisitions of our beloved programs by monopolies. My father was a simple farmer. He worked pretty hard everyday, almost an hour from 15pm to 16pm, that's quite a lot in the future as temperatures are as high as 50°C due to massive hot tubs used by the super rich on a daily basis. As you can see the future is grim, and that's why you should become a patron and help me out here.


  1. Wow! Even having done development, I realize that what I wrote was just a paragraph compared to these applications and programs we used everyday..
    It's true that in the 80s/90s pieces of code where small and limited and I remember when COO came, we had a hard time to keep the code from becoming spaghetti code.. We were not realizing that coding in Java, Php and others was in fact relying on a larger body of code to allow our module to work.. more of less.
    Thanks for your work
