Here are the stats: https://www.openhub.net/p/tikiwiki

In 2023-07, there was a question ("Why? More enthusiastic coders or more use of AI?") on Facebook and I am copying question and answers here for posterity:

It's a combination of things:
- Tiki25 was the biggest release ever, so that was a lot of commits: https://tiki.org/article497-Biggest-Tiki-Release-Ever-Tiki-25
- Moving to PHP 8.1 in Tiki26 was also a large number of commits: https://doc.tiki.org/PHP8
- We started using https://dev.tiki.org/Using-GlitchTip-as-part-of-the-Tiki-development-process so this leads to a lot of small fixes: remove mostly harmless error messages but also fix some real underlying issues.
- We recruited a lot of junior developers and after an adaptation period, the output in quantity and quality is ramping up.
So this combination of factors is not going to stay forever. Once PHP8 and error logs are in good shape, the commits there will go down. And we'll shift the energy to more substantive commits (adding a new feature can be 30x more work than fixing an error in the logs). And the junior devs will continue to improve.
Quantity and Quality: Beyond having a lot of commits, the quality is improving (the average commit is significantly better than the average of the current code base):
- We handled thousands of merge requests, and you can read all the thoughtful discussions: https://gitlab.com/tikiwiki/tiki/-/merge_requests?scope=all&state=all
- Thousands of tests are ran of each commit: https://gitlab.com/tikiwiki/tiki/-/blob/master/.gitlab-ci.yml
And we'll revamp our build system for Tiki27, among other things: https://dev.tiki.org/Tiki27

Tiki dependencies

We have a specific entry:


  • In the 2013-2015 period vs 2017 and after
    • The number of commits is very high
    • The fluctuations are intense from month to month, which is surprising given it's aggregate data for over 100 projets.

Potential explanation: Many projects used today by Tiki were born in 2011-2013 and there was a lot of initial activity and things stabilized because many projects became more established and because of the move to Git (more work/output per commit, because multiple commits are squashed into one). Also, some projects were started on GitHub.




  • For charts, there are 2 possible values for time_span​: 30+days and 12+months.
