Handy new tool: GitHub Contributions Archive based on the GitHub Archive providing your github history

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/05

The GitHub Contributions Archive is based on the GitHub Archive (see below) and provides insight in anyones contributions. I discovered through a recent post by Ilya Grigorik:

Handy new tool (built on top of dataset!) that aggregates all of your GitHub activity: I’ve contributed to… – Ilya Grigorik – Google+

The GitHub Archive is amazing as it provides way more history than Github does by itself:

GitHub Archive is a project to record the public GitHub timeline, archive it, and make it easily accessible for further analysis.

Researching that data can provide tons of information, for instance about behaviour. It is also available through Google BigQuery so you can write your own queries for it.

The GitHub Contributions Archive – built by Liam Bowen – provides one (very usable) kind of insight: contributions, but there is much much more as quite some research, visualizations and talks have shown.

Interesting stuff!
