Top 100 Most Valuable GitHub Repositories

Github Bug Bounty Program

GitHub undoubtedly has the most popular repositories in the coding world. It isn’t just a code hosting service which offers version control — it also serves a huge network of developers across the world.

Currently, GitHub hosts over 30 million accounts, 2+ million organizations, and more than 96 million repositories, among which exist some of the world’s most valuable Git repos.

Do you ever wonder the value of the repositories hosted there or which ones make their way all the way to the top?

Folks at U°OS ran a simplified version of a reputation algorithm to determine the top 100 most valuable repositories. The results are pretty interesting so let’s take a quick look at all of them.

As seen from the table above, the top spots are occupied by big tech companies that are hugely betting on open source projects. Google, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook and even companies like Baidu from China rank in the most valuable Git repos list.

Google Kubernetes tops the list and is followed by Apache Spark, and Microsoft Visual Studio Code on the second and third position.

Apart from familiar names like Red Hat OpenShift and Home Assistant, there are programming languages and frameworks on the list too such as Rust (fifth rank), Node.js, TensorFlow, Python etc.

There are educational projects like freeCodeCamp, Open edX, Oppia, and but at the same time, there’s a Chinese anti-censorship tool as well — XX Net.

We also have Bitcoin Core for cryptocurrency on the list and the particle detector for CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.

Google’s Flutter, which has seen a sharp increase in its popularity recently, also has a slot on this list.

As far as gaming projects are concerned, we can see familiar names like Space Station 13, Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead and there’s also a gaming engine called Godot.
