Gatsby GitHub Stats
Note: As of May 9, 2021 I am stopping the crawling for this dataset and will eventually take down the website. Feel free to fork this repo if you wish to continue.
A website that tracks the last two weeks of statistics about the gatsbyjs/gatsby repo.
This is an unnofficial project and not maintained by the Gatsby Core Team.
The site is a Gatsby site at it's core. It uses a JSON file generated by a GitHub Action as the data source and then passes said data into a variety of charts using the Recharts chart library.
The inner workings of the site is powered by gatsby-theme-github-stats.
To work with the site locally in a development mode:
- Clone down the repo:
git clone https://github.com/lannonbr/gatsby-github-stats/
- Install the dependencies:
- Run Gatsby in development mode:
There are two actions that continually update the site. They are both found in the
.github/actions/ directory of this repository.
First off is an action that queries the GitHub V4 GraphQL API for various stats like the number of open / closed issues, PRs, etc. and then sends the stats to a NoSQL database on Google's Firebase platform.
The other action then queries the Firebase database to grab the last 336 entries which equates to the last 2 weeks of data. It then prints it out to a
data.json file in the
src/data/ directory and then commits it to the repository. This triggers a deploy to Netlify for the site to be rebuilt.
