If you want to quickly and flexibly understand a set of open source software projects, give Augur a try! "Augur" is the core software, and "augur-community-reports", "augur-spdx" (for licensing), and "Auggie", which is a slack plugin for notifications that enables you to get push messages from Augur.

Want to get started right away without doing much work? Email a list of repository to GitHub/GitLab organizations to Augur at with the subject line "Augur Instance", and we will respond with a timeline within a day. The more repositories you request, the longer it takes to gather data (FYI).

Augur Components

  1. START HERE: Augur is a Flask web application, Python library and REST server that presents metrics on open source software development project health and sustainability.
  2. Augur now also includes, which provides Jupyter Notebooks that enable open source projects to ask questions of Augur's rich, validated GitHub and GitLab datasets.
  3. You can also now subscribe to slack notifications at from your Augur instance, at this link, which is located at the repository. We even have a GitHub Webpage, here: that consolidates the and development guide in a nifty, aesthetically pleasing template, sure to lure the real estate agent in your life.

GrimoireLab is a set of free, open source software tools for software development analytics. They gather data from several platforms involved in software development (Git, GitHub, Jira, Bugzilla, Gerrit, Mailing lists, Jenkins, Slack, Discourse, Confluence, StackOverflow, and more), merge and organize it in a database, and produce visualizations, actionable dashboards, and analytics of all of it.

GrimoireLab is focused on analyzing activity, community, and processes. Nonetheless, it can be easily tailored for other aims, and integrated with other tools.

Built with GrimoireLab

Projects and services built using GrimoireLab technology:

  1. A SaaS solution that allows project managers, analysts, and developers to understand more about the community and processes involved in software development.
  2. TLF Community Bridge Insights: A centralized platform that collects and visualizes data to let you monitor and analyze your open source projects.
  3. Mystic is Open@RIT's addition to the GrimoireLab ecosystem, enabling anyone within the RIT community to collect metrics on their projects, from open source to open science.
  4. The Document Foundation Dashboard: TDF dashboard uses GrimoireLab tool in order to show a transparent overview of LibreOffice development.
  5. Bitergia Analytics Platform: A centralized source for metrics and data about software development projects.

Main components

GrimoireLab toolkit is organized in twelve different components. Each of them can be used as independent tools:

Data retrieval:

  • Perceval: Tool used to retrieve and gather data from software repositories.
  • Graal: Source data analysis with external tools
  • KingArthur: batch processing for massive retrieval

Data enrichment:

Data visualization:

Platform management, orchestration, and common utils:

  • Mordred: orchestration
  • GrimoireLab Toolkit: common utilities
  • Bestiary: web-based user interface to manage repositories and projects for Mordred
  • Hatstall: web-based user interface to manage SortingHat identities
