As discussed with @0xazure in real life - I'd like to work on a PR that adds a capability to sort by languages found in a user's starred repos.

@Mordax this sounds like a great idea!

It looks like the GitHub API includes information about a project's languages (see the languages_url key).

You'll likely also have to modify the Star structure here:


Lines 67 to 71 in 66f5bc5

#[derive(Debug, Deserialize)]
struct Star {
starred_at: DateTime<Utc>,
repo: Repository,

to capture this data as we pull it from the API. I'm not totally sure how this is going to work with serde and the #[derive] attributes because serde expects a particular struct structure to correctly (de)serialize the API data.

Looking forward to seeing this functionality added to supernova!
