EtherCurve, a tool for visualizing network packets

I just put the finishing touches (for now) on a small visualization project of mine.
a tool that uses a space-filling Hilbert curve to
visualize packets in your network. Packets are scaled by their sizes and coloured using a
qualitative colour map that can be custommized easily.
I wrote this mainly to get acquainted with
libpcap and parts of Qt5. I
also have a secret passion for fractal curves and yearn to use them in more projects. For my current
research, they have already been of some use in a joint project, but the idea for
even older. As you can see from the git log, I wrote this more in spurts than in sprints…
