The beginning of the year provides a great opportunity to acknowledge the terrific work done by the Ohloh team in 2012. Here’s a recap of the accomplishments:
- Introduced Ohloh “Organizations”, allowing the grouping of FOSS projects by the entity that fosters them, and aggregating project statistics for those organizations across multiple projects
- Launched the Ohloh Open data initiative, making Ohloh data freely available for almost any use
- Added integrated code search capabilities via Ohloh Code
- Today, more than 15 billion lines of code are searchable
- Redesigned project pages to improve the user experience
- Simplified how projects are added
- Improved tagging, so that similar and related projects are more relevant
- Reconstructed the UI with the Bootstrap framework
- Made various API improvements
- Implemented back-end improvements to improve data quality
- Migrated documentation and the blog (Ohloh Meta) to WordPress
I’d like to thank the Ohloh team – Abhay, Amar, Ben, Jared, Nithya, Paddy, Peter, Ramya, Rich, Robin, Sathish, Sathosh, and Thila – and the Ohloh Code team – Anuj, Kaj, Joe, Krishna, Matt, Mike, Mike Jr., Mugdha, Nitin, Pooja, Scott, Sushil, and Susie. These individuals, and those in supporting roles who helped them, made it happen!
And thank you, as always, to all of our users and supporters!
As for the coming year, we have some great plans ahead. Please stay tuned.
