About the Krihelinator project

This project proposes an alternative to github's trending page, by exposing projects with high contribution rate, instead of daily stars (similarly to github's pulse page). The krihelimeter of each repository is calculated using the number of authors, commits, pull requests, and issues of that project, from the past week.

Krihelimeter =  20  * authors +
8  * merged and proposed pull requests +
8  * new and closed issues +
1  * commits

During the development of this project I found out that people use github as a backup service, automating hundreds of commits per week. Therefor, to filter these projects out, only projects with more than one author enters the Krihelinator DB.
