Github Activity

    Definition

    Unlike Development Activity which excludes some of the events, the GitHub Activity metric uses all events to compute the metric.

    There are 3 development activity metrics available:

    • github_activity - Computed on-the-fly using the Github data. Because of this the metric can compute data for any asset or any random Github organization that has public repositories like Google, Facebook, or any other organization.
    • github_activity_1d - Precomputed daily metric for each asset that is available on Santiment. This allows the metric to be aggregated when the value is needed for all assets at once.
    • ecosystem_github_activity - Precomputed for each ecosystem. An ecosystem dev activity is defined as the sum of the dev activities of all assets that belong to it. For example the ethereum ecosystem contains all the project that build on the Ethereum blockchain or contribute to the blockchain in any other way.

    Fetch the github_activity for an arbitrary organization. You need to provide only the organization name to the parameter, not the whole URL. Github links look like this: https://github.com/<organization>/<repository>.
