Adding tiny but informative sparklines would be great! See http://www.edwardtufte.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=0001OR for some definitions and http://sparklines.bitworking.info/ http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2005/06/22/sparklines.html for examples implemented in Python.

Good idea. "pushed_at" property for each repo may be used to create a graph.

What should / could be shown via a sparkline? A preliminary suggestion: x-axis: time y-axis: number of commits (any other visualization ideas that can be realized via sparklines?)

We can create a "social" sparkline and a "coder" sparkline. Each can have its own calculations though for social for example number of issue events can be counted and for coder, commits can be a good measure. Any more ideas like pull requests, milestone completions, forks, etc.?

Definitely not bad for a starter! I liked it ;-)

Thanks! It took some effort and there is much to improve though at least we can have something to show =)

@emres here is how the badge looks like now:

Very similar to the previous shot but has some minor differences. It shows your commit activity for the past 14 days. The maximum is your maximum and the minimum is 0. We can play with it comfortably from now on. Any suggestions?

BYK/pyresto#8 was the blocker for this issue so some gory details can be found there and related commits with that issue.

This one looks much more streamlined indeed! I'm looking forward to the updated http://githubbadge.appspot.com/ eagerly ;-)

The new version is on the way and @berkerpeksag made it look even better! Thanks for the great idea =)
