Clojure Open-Source Code Metrics
I have assembled a file called
massive.clj. It is 325k lines worth of concatenated open source Clojure code, every
.clj from the top 50 most starred Clojure projects according to Github (excluding Clojure itself).
Let’s roll with some stats to understand some basic metrics of the most-used Clojure code, shall we?
|Lines of code*||275,690|
|Total amount of forms||477,000|
- without whitespace, without parentheses-only lines
In general, we have 1:11 code-to-comment ratio, average of 138 total lines per file (out of them, 107 lines are code). The longest file is 8,065 lines (a huge config of UIKit bindings in the Clojure-C project), the longest non-config file is
clojure.typed‘s test.core at 4,573 lines and the longest non-config, non-test file is charts.clj in
