  • Analysing Github Stars - Extracting and analyzing data from Github using Apache NiFi®, Apache Kafka® and Apache Druid®

    Spencer Kimball (now CEO at CockroachDB) wrote an interesting article on this topic in 2021 where they created spencerkimball/stargazers based on a Python script. So I started thinking: could I create a data pipeline using Nifi and Kafka (two OSS tools often used with Druid) to get the API data into Druid - and then use SQL to do the analytics? The answer was yes! And I have documented the outcome below. Here’s my analytical pipeline for Github stars data using Nifi, Kafka and Druid.
  • Ask HN: Why so many projects set their GitHub links to /stargazers?

    It's analytics. Google search brings up

    "Years ago I dedicated a Flex Friday (our version of 20% time) to stargazers, a tool to query the CockroachDB repository for information about its GitHub stars and analyze the results. At the time of writing, we had 6,000+ stars (which felt like a lot), and the data in this blog will be based on that original set of 6,000 stargazers."

    Which links to

    "GitHub allows visitors to star a repo to bookmark it for later perusal. Stars represent a casual interest in a repo, and when enough of them accumulate, it's natural to wonder what's driving interest. Stargazers attempts to get a handle on who these users are by finding out what else they've starred, which other repositories they've contributed to, and who's following them on GitHub."

    Go ahead and use the Stargazers repo yourself to analyze yours (or anyone else’s) repo’s trends. Depending upon the number of Stargazers you have, it can take some time. It took us about 7-8 hours (with a 5K/Hr rate limit).
