Bixo on CIA.vc

October 10, 2010

CIA.vc is an interesting site that I’ve kept on eye on for many years, ever since we first noticed it during the early days of Krugle. It calls itself “The open source version control informant.”, and its goal is to track changes across all of the open source projects with publicly accessible source code management systems.

I recently noticed that GitHub has a post-commit hook for CIA.vc, so I created an entry for Bixo (http://cia.vc/stats/project/bixo), and connected it to GitHub. So now it should be possible for anyone using CIA to easily track activity on the Bixo project.

All of these HTTP-based, at least somewhat RESTful-ish APIs are making it increasingly trivial to connect the dots, which is great. It’s too bad the Galactic Project Registry never took off, as I’d love to have One Source of Truth about all of the open source projects in the world, especially for license, activity, and usage data.
