[SciPy-Dev] Python Scipy Block Diagram Editor with ACG

Hey Guys,

I am Dwight Reid an electrical engineer and lecturer at the University of Technology (also IEEE member and branch counselor)  in Jamaica. Some months ago I had started working on a block diagram editor for python that I dream one day will become a reasonable alternative to Matlab Simulink. I want to put a special emphasis on automatic code generation (ACG) and so far I have done ACG for python Scipy and also for the arduino, these are however just an implementation of some basic functions.

As is, the block diagram editing is done in libre office draw and you have to manually type in the functions and commands, I have 
attached an example exported to pdf.

Would anyone be willing to help with this, I have no experience developing with the open source community.

I think it would definitely get more people using python since it is much easier to program graphically and it would be very useful to scientific computing. I imagine a better, moretailored graphic editor with predefined blocks that you can pull out like simulink or scilab xcos (maybe a stripped down libre office draw), implementing this is beyond my current skill level so it goes slowly.

I hope I'm clear enough, let me know what you think.
