New Project Charts and New Project Homepages

In our latest deployment of Ohloh, we’ve updated the project homepages to be more data-centric and have added a new charting tool to get more insights into a project.

New Project Charts

On the new project homepages, you’ll now notice a “Code Analysis” section containing the new chart.

Chart of Firefox codebase growth

With the new chart, you can
– drag within the chart to zoom in
– select/unselect labels from the legend
– mouse-over lines for specific data points

Charting Options

The new chart offers several options for viewing data. Below are examples for the Mozilla Firefox project.

Code

Chart of Firefox codebase growth for all time

Language

Chart of Firefox codebase growth by language for all time

Committers

Chart of number of Firefox committers for all time

Commits

Chart of number of Firefox commits for all time

Similar Projects Page

Although this is an existing feature, we’ve moved it to its own sub-page on the Project page to give it more visibility and to display more projects.

For example, https://www.ohloh.net/p/firefox/similar_projects

Wider-width Ohloh

Lastly, frequent visitors will notice something slightly different about the look and feel of Ohloh. We’ve increased the width of Ohloh to give us more flexibility in the data we display.

As always, if you have any feedback or suggestions how we can improve Ohloh, please let us know.
