About Augur

Augur is focused on prototyping open source software metrics.

Functionally, Augur is a prototyped implementation of the Linux Foundation’s CHAOSS Project on open source software metrics. Technically, Augur is a Flask web application, Python library and REST server that presents metrics on open source software development project health and sustainability.

Getting Started

Please follow the ‘Getting Started’ guide in our documentation.

Note: we currently only support (most) UNIX systems. If you would like to use Augur but only have access to a non-Unix system, we recommend setting up an Ubuntu 18.04 VM if you can. If this is not feasible for you, please reach out to us at p9j0r6s0m4a0t8v5@augurlabs.slack.com and we will try to help you come up with a solution. In the meantime, if you have Windows and feel so inclined check out issue #403 as a starting point until we can finalize a Windows installation.

Data Collection

Please follow the instructions for collecting data about specific repositories of interest. We are also currently working on putting together an easily distributable sample database to enable people to get going faster.

If you have any issues, please feel free to request to email straight into our slack channel p9j0r6s0m4a0t8v5@augurlabs.slack.com for new developer support!!


To contribute to Augur, please follow the guidelines found in our CONTRIBUTING.md and our Code of Conduct. Augur is a welcoming development community that is open to anyone and everyone of every skill level!

Check out our documentation for information about our system.

Please note we require all commits to be signed off with a Developer Certificate of Origin in accordance with the CHAOSS Project Charter section 8.2.1. This can be easily done by using the -s flag when using git commit, e.g. git commit -s -m "Update README.md". Any pull request containing commits that are not signed off will not be eligible for merge until all commits are signed off.
