[Have you noticed recently this kind of titles appearing in more and more media outlets? They make me sick, but often make me seeking for the news as well 🙂 So, I am just curious if this post’s title caught your attention too? Nevertheless, the title says some truth as the post is about Hercules. And also about OpenUI5.]
This Monday my teammate Jonathan Baker started big with his #OpenSourceMonday introducing why OpenUI5 is one of the best examples we have of full-fledged active open source at SAP. He referenced to some metrics about the contribution to OpenUI5 repository.
Reading about metrics is good, but seeing is better. Luckily recently I found that nice piece of code called the project Hercules. So, Hercules looked at the OpenUI5 repository at GitHub and produced some visualizations. FYI, it took about 2hs on my laptop running Herkules to analyze and visualize the repo.
