Project Summary : Factoids

Analyzed almost 6 years ago. based on code collected almost 6 years ago.
 

Young, but established codebase

The first lines of source code were added to The Helium in August, 2011. If this young project has had recent activity, then it likely has passed its critical early start-up period, and has become established. The project still may be rapidly changing, innovative and exciting, and finding its focus.

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 The Helium 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.

Average number of code comments

The Helium is written mostly in JavaScript.

Across all JavaScript projects on Open Hub, 20% of all source code lines are comments.

This holds true for The Helium as well. It contains the same ratio of comment lines to code lines as the majority of JavaScript projects in 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.

Only a single active developer

During the past twelve months, this project has had only one active contributor.

Over half of all active projects on Open Hub are solo efforts.

For this measurement, Open Hub considers only recent changes to the code. Over the entire history of the project, 3 developers have contributed.
