Most active GitHub users (git.io/top)

The count of contributions (summary of Pull Requests, opened issues and commits) to public repos at GitHub.com from Wed, 21 Sep 2022 till Thu, 21 Sep 2023.

Only first 1000 GitHub users according to the count of followers are taken. This is because of limitations of GitHub search. Sorting algo in pseudocode:

githubUsers
  .filter(user => user.followers > 1000)
  .sortBy('contributions')
  .slice(0, 256)

Made with data mining of GitHub.com (raw data, script) by @paulmillr with contribs of @lifesinger and @ahmetalpbalkan. Updated once per week.

Updated for 2023, but github now exposes private contributions, so this isn't as telling as before

@ljharb

ljharb commented Sep 21, 2023

@paulmillr could you perhaps alter the script to filter out private contributions?

@paulmillr
Copy link
Author

@ljharb I don't see any easy way to do this, you need to go user-by-user manually and check their daily contributions by hand.

I will do this now for the first 20-50-100 users.
