Danesh is a tool to help people work more easily with procedural generators. With just a few lines of code you can connect your generator to Danesh and get a better understanding of what it can do, what it can't do, and what it might do with a few tweaks.
Danesh is designed to help people learning procedural generation for the first time, as well as experts who want to get the most out of the code they write. The tool will grow and develop based on your feedback, and our own cutting-edge research into generative analysis.
Rapidly generate content and tweak variables to see the effects
Describe things you want to see in your content, and let Danesh measure it
Create interactive visualisations of what your generator is doing
Let Danesh automatically find variable settings to achieve certain goals

We're hoping to get some brand new tutorials and videos ready about Danesh really soon.
Danesh is developed by The Metamakers Institute, in conjunction with Falmouth University.
The primary developer is Michael Cook (@mtrc on Twitter)
