Marcel Pociot has written up a post to finish out 2017 and provide a year in review for the community and language via some Github statistics.
It’s this time of the year again – the end of the year is coming up fast, so why not step back and take a look at what we, as a PHP community, have achieved this year?
For these statistics, I used the free GitHub Archive data in combination with Google BigQuery, which lets you process 1TB of data per month free of charge.
So let’s take a look at some numbers
He first breaks it up into three main categories:
- most starred PHP repositories
- most starred new PHP repositories
- most contributed PHP repositories
From there he "digs deeper" and looks at the packages requiring the most dependencies and graphs the frameworks according to how many dependencies they require to install.
