A golang CLI to output stargazer stars histogram for a GitHub repository


bestgo is a CLI that pulls live data from https://api.bestofgo.dev (UI coming soon). This is an application that scrapes GitHub data for Go repositories that have 50 or more stars

⭐️
once an hour.

The API is Protobuf-based and implemented with Twirp. You can view the Protobuf docs for the APIServer here:

https://buf.build/mf192/bestofgo/docs/main/api#api.APIService

Usage

Usage of bestgo:
  -i string
        grouping interval. Supported: year, quarter, month (default "year")
  -repo string
        full repository name. Example: go-chi/chi (mandatory)

Example:

$ bestgo -repo go-chi/chi -i year 
2015 [215]	|■■■■■
2016 [730]	|■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
2017 [1826]	|■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
2018 [1769]	|■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
2019 [2081]	|■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
2020 [1948]	|■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■
2021 [1310]	|■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■

Repository: go-chi/chi has 9879 ⭐️ stars total

Bonus

Since the API is Protobuf-based, anyone can pull the SDK Client and just use it. Huh? Don’t I need to pull the proto files, install a bunch of plugins and then locally generate my source code?

Nope!

Heh, check out the source code, the interesting bit is where the SDK is being fetched from:

import "go.buf.build/demolab/twirp-go/mf192/bestofgo/api"

That’s right, there are hosted Protobuf files on buf.build as well as protoc-based templates (in this case Go + Twirp). Which means code generation is taking place remotely and you don’t have to do anything.

Just go get the code, run go mod tidy and you’re ready to use it, just like this CLI!

If this doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what will. Maybe this tweet

The folks over at https://buf.build are working on some neat stuff, check it out!
