GitHut (http://githut.info) is an attempt to visualize and explore the complexity of the universe of programming languages used across the repositories hosted on GitHub.
-Programming languages are not simply the tool developers use to create programs or express algorithms but also instruments to code and decode creativity. By observing the history of languages we can enjoy the quest of human kind for a better way to solve problems, to facilitate collaboration between people and to reuse the effort of others.

-Github is the largest code host in the world, with 3.4 million users. It's the place where the open-source development community offers access to most of its projects. By analyzing how languages are used in GitHub it is possible to understand the popularity of programming languages among developers and also to discover the unique characteristics of each language.
