VersionEye is tracking Open Source Software Libraries in the Internet. VersionEye is not interested in SourceCode. VersionEye is only interested in ready releases. In Artefacts that are “done” and you can reuse in your projects. The Graph down shows the amount of projects per language.
These numbers are collected from more than 50 different repository servers in the Internet, i.e. repository servers such as RubyGems.org, pypi.python.org, packagist.org and more than 40 Maven repository servers. SCM tools such as GitHub or BitBucket are not included.
This numbers contain only Software Library projects. Desktop Tools written Java and hosted on SourceForge are not included.
The following graph shows the growth of the repositories over time.
VersionEye started to crawle Repositories in April. That’s why we can not go further back in time. But the last couple months are already enough to show the growth speed of the repositories. If RubyGems is continuing to grow this fast, than soon it will be number 1.
