The topics metric represents the most popular project topics within an economy, using the topics feature for repositories. It gives the total count of unique developers making at least one git push to a repository with a given topic. See our documentation for Topics for more information about how developers assign topics to repositories.

How to read this chart

Each data point corresponds to the rank of a topic based on the count of unique developers who uploaded code to a repository tagged with that topic during a given quarter. Topics with a greater count of unique developers appear higher on the chart and later values appear farther to the right. Note that topics related to programming languages and GitHub profile configuration files have been excluded.

Methodological note

Metrics for economies are only reported when there are 100 or more unique developers performing the relevant activity within the time period. See the datasheet in our repository for more on the metrics, definitions, representativeness, and limitations of the GitHub Innovation Graph.
