Why did I do this?

In my opinion, none of the graphs/statistics provided by GitHub are useful. If anything, they can be misleading. Those metrics are not an accurate measurement of value, which is the only thing that matters.

Some real life examples that upset me enough to push me to create this:

  • Recruiters looking at the GitHub green bar like if it accurately displayed the quality of the Engineer.

  • Engineers judging other engineers just by looking at the GitHub profile.

  • Managers or other engineers looking at the commit and line counts. These metrics can be found for each Engineer and repository. Like if writing 1000 lines actually added 1000 times the value. Sometimes, a simple dependency version bump can improve performance and bring much more value.

Disagree?

If you think that code metrics are useful for anything, please open an issue to this repo, and if your argumentation is good enough I will even consider removing the repository and the npm module.

Contributing

I would be very glad if anyone wanted to contribute to this project. Crazy and nice features are totally welcomed!

Some ideas that still need some work are currently marked as WIP in the --help output.
