How to find your most active developers in your project

Hey, Everyone,

Every open source project wants to get a sense of which members are most active and bringing the most value to the community. Luckily, this is easy to do in LFX Insights.

Here’s how…

Step 1: Choose your project

Head over to and choose your project by clicking on the Go to Projects button:

In this example, we will look at the Academy Software Foundation projects.

Step 2: Open the Technical Metrics

When you go to the projects view, you will see the overall metrics for that collection of projects:

Click on the Technical Metrics option in the left-hand menu.

Step 3: Identify your top contributors

Now, in the main body of the LFX Insights you can see the list of top technical contributors:

Step 4: Recognize and reward

So, with this information, what do we do with it? Some recommendations:

  • Reach out and thank them for their fantastic work.
  • Send them some swag (e.g. t-shirts, water bottles, etc.)
  • Schedule a call with them and ask them their thoughts on the project and how you could make the community more engaging and empowering for them.
