Repository Health Project for CSCI 4900

Build Status Coverage Status

This repository holds the proof of concept for the repository health and sustainability project for CSCI 4900 at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. This repository will hold the backend and frontend source code to extract data from Github and ghtorrent and provide statistics about a selected repository. Description of the backend and frontend source are provided.

Please be aware this project is not ready for production use.


Docker is the preferred way to get an environment running. If you would like to not use Docker, please click here. Please note the Docker environment uses a development server and serves the backend application in a development state. This is not safe for production use.

This was tested using v1.12.6 of Docker and v1.11.2 of Docker Compose. Any version below these are untested.

Step 1: Clone repo-health onto your local machine. Run git clone to clone this repo.

Step 2: Make sure mysql is not running locally and that port 3306 and 8000 are free. If running on ubuntu, run service mysql stop.

Step 3: Go to the root folder of repo-health and run docker-compose up. This will run through all of our configurations. This process will take roughly 10 minutes.

Step 4: Once complete, a message will display saying that the server is listening to port 8000. You may now go to localhost:8000 to view this application.


Once the app is installed and running, visit the localhost link above to enter a Github repository URL such as:

You may also enter only the owner and repo name portion of the URL such as: cakephp/cakephp and acheive the same result.

Please be aware the data set currently used is outdated and does not contain all the repositories on Github today.



The Django web framework is used in the project to leverage quick development and the third party packages available.


The frontend source is written in ES2015 using Angular. We are using Angular Material for our styles.


To run UI tests:

cd repo_health/index/static
npm test

To run Backend tests:

python test
