GitHub Bus Factor

More meaningful statistics for GitHub projects than just stars.

$ gem install github_bus_factor

Usage

You will need to create a GitHub access token. Head over to https://github.com/settings/tokens and create a new one, call the app GitHub Score and copy the token.

To fetch a report for a particular repository

$ github_bus_factor octokit/octokit.rb

First time you call it, it will prompt you to provide the token you just created.

To remove the token

$ github_bus_factor logout

If you ever forget what each line of the report means, run

$ github_bus_factor about

Report

🙂 Description
🍴 Forks. Might mean people planning are fixing bugs or adding features.
🔭 Watchers. Shows number of people interested in project changes.
🌟 Stars. Might mean it is a good project or that it was featured in a mailing list. Some people use 🌟 as a "Like".
🗓 Age. Mature projects might mean battle tested project. Recent pushes might mean project is actively maintained.
🍻 Pull Requests. Community contributions to the project. Many closed PRs usually is a good sign, while no PRs usual is bad.
🛠 Refactoring. Balance between added and deleted code. Crude value not including semantic understanding of the code.
📦 Releases. Might mean disciplined maintainer. Certain dependency managers rely on releases to be present.
🚌 Bus factor. Chances of the project to become abandoned once current collaborators stop updating it. The higher - the worse.
