GitHub Badge is a nice, little web utility that gives a 10.000 feet overview of your GitHub activity. It has a very high data-ink ratio, showing the programming languages you employ frequently, as well as some valuable statistics about your source code repositories. It is being developed out in the open by fellow hackers berkerpeksag and BYK.
This cute little application was the subject of well-deserved enthusiasm when I first saw it, and one of my immediate reactions were: “Hey, why don’t you add sparklines? Now, that would be cool, right?”. Apparently the developers listened and went on to spread more information visualization love. Well, now, don’t you consider this yet another reason to be fond of open source and interactive development that is becoming more and more popular every single day, thanks to the success of systems such as Github?
Oh, by the way, no, I’m not on vacation. Really. Err, maybe regarding my GitHub projects but… (Maybe I should open another issue for that ;-)
