by DPRating Team

If any projects want to be part of the list, just leave a comment below.

So without further ado, here is our list:

How do we rate?

Popularity of the Library

Popularity of the Library is defined as the mean number of Watch, Star and fork. Very High: > 500, High: between 100 and 500, MediumL between 20 and 100, Low: Below 20.

Number of Contributors

Number of Contributors: The number of contributors that have committed code in the last month. High: More than 12, Medium: between 6 and 12, Low: Below 6.

Release Frequency

Release Frequency: We took the version release frequency of Bitcoin and Ethereum, 14.31 days for a new release, as a reference value. We then divide the number of average days spent for a new release by 14.31 to get a release frequency score. High: below 2, Medium: between 2 and 4, Low: above 4.

e.g. A projrct has been released 35 times from 6/1/2017 to 7/2/2018, for an average of 9.13 days between new releases. This divided by 14.31 is 0.71, so the release frequency would be considered high.

Type of commit

A1: Continuously, steadily developing new features

A2: Fixing Bugs and testing after new feature developments

A3: Releasing few new features based on initial commitment and changing configurations.

B: Fixing bugs and testing for Devops

C: Changing configuration for Devops

D; Cannot be defined in any above category
