Does something like Quirk exist for topological (eg. braided) circuits?

Alternatively, any ideas on how @CraigGidney is getting these circuits (or something similar)?

    $\begingroup$ Those figures were created manually with sketchup, which is a 3d modelling tool. There was no simulation involved, only careful application of known rules. I have been working on a tool to both edit and simulate the braids, but it is very incomplete at the moment. And it may switch paradigms completely (to lattice surgery) before advancing more. $\endgroup$ Jul 24, 2018 at 13:53

There is QTop which is an open-source project that can simulate but also visualize topological quantum codes.
