New GitHub repos per year, by programming language via Donnie Berkholz (@dberkholz)
Please republish with corrections. These data have been smoothed to hide information (e.g. variance, granularity, frequency)- what’s the point of that? Also the labels are not clearly associated with curves (e.g. which curve is java, which is ruby?) Also, the total number (rather than percentage) would be interesting, as would number of checkins or some other measure of ongoing activity. (“new” repositories over-represent flash-in-the-pan projects).
However, don’t get me wrong. It is interesting. A set of 12 charts exploring these phenomena in more detail would make an interesting article for SIGPLAN.
