Project Summary : Factoids

Analyzed about 21 hours ago. based on code collected 7 months ago.

Very well-commented source code

Color-Spectrum-Multi is written mostly in Perl.

Across all Perl projects on Open Hub, 26% of all source code lines are comments.

For Color-Spectrum-Multi, this figure is only 44%.

This very impressive number of comments puts Color-Spectrum-Multi among the top 10% of all Perl projects on Open Hub.

A high number of comments might indicate that the code is well-documented and organized, and could be a sign of a helpful and disciplined development team.

Short source control history

The source code repository for Color-Spectrum-Multi has less than a year of continuous activity. This likely is a relatively new project.

A short history is not necessarily a bad thing (all projects have to start somewhere!) but often, newer projects are changing rapidly and are thus less stable. They are also often innovative and exciting!

As this project matures, a longer source control history in conjunction with recent activity might indicate that the project has enough merit to hold contributors' interest for a long time. It might indicate a mature and relatively bug-free code base, and can be a sign of an organized, dedicated development team.

Note: The source code for Color-Spectrum-Multi might actually be older than the source control history can reveal. Many new projects begin by incorporating a large amount of source code from existing, older projects. You might be able to tell whether this is the case by looking for a rapid rise in the amount of code early in the project's history.

Stable Y-O-Y development activity

Over the last twelve months, Color-Spectrum-Multi has not seen any change in activity. This may be a good sign, and an indication that development is continuing at the same pace and not dropping off.

Open Hub makes this determination by comparing the total number of commits made by all developers during the most recent twelve months with the same figure for the prior twelve months. The number of developers and total lines of code are not considered.

No recent development activity

The source code for Color-Spectrum-Multi has not been changed in over a year.

Over 75% of all projects on Open Hub have no recent activity. Open source has a "long tail" of projects whose developers have moved on. But the code is still there for all to benefit from!

For this measurement, Open Hub considers only recent changes to the code. Over the entire history of the project, 1 developer have contributed.
