Very Low Activity

Project Summary : Factoids

  Analyzed 2 days ago based on code collected 4 days ago.

Very well-commented source code

PixelLight is written mostly in C.

Across all C projects on Ohloh, 19% of all source code lines are comments. For PixelLight, this figure is 68%.

This very impressive number of comments puts PixelLight among the top 10% of all C projects on Ohloh.

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.

Young, but established codebase

The first lines of source code were added to PixelLight in August, 2010. 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 PixelLight 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.

Decreasing Y-O-Y development activity

Over the last twelve months, PixelLight has seen a substantial decrease in development activity. This could mean many things. It may be a warning sign that interest in this project is waning, or it may indicate a maturing code base that requires fewer fixes and changes. It is also possible that development on this project has moved to a new source control repository somewhere else.

Ohloh 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 PixelLight has not been changed in over a year.

Over 75% of all projects on Ohloh 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, Ohloh considers only recent changes to the code. Over the entire history of the project, 12 developers have contributed.
