For the last several years we have tracked open source project velocity, which has enabled us to monitor the trends and technologies that resonate with developers and end users. For comparison, have a look at past timeframes from our blogs

Here are the main takeaways I see from these charts: 

CNCF projects – Last 12 months (interactive map)

cncf projects

Linux Foundation Projects – Last 12 months (interactive map)

LF projects

Top 30 open source projects – Last 12 months (interactive map)

Open source projects

NOTE: We use bubble charts to show three axes of data: commits, authors, and comments/pull requests, and plot on a log-log chart to show the data across large scales. 

All of the the current and past reports are available on GitHub, as well as a list and charts on the Google sheets below:

All of the scripts used to generate this data are at (under an Apache 2.0 license). If you see any errors, please open an issue there.
