The trendy five: Ring in the new year with the coolest GitHub repos of December 2019
It’s that time of month again, time to browse the GitHub trending page and pick the best, coolest, or most impressive open source projects for the month. December 2019 was full of great repos, and as always, it’s hard to narrow it down to just the top five. Last month we saw a way to make Docker containers smaller, a helpful source code explorer, and more.
Every month, we go over the GitHub trending page for any cool repos that stand out from the crowd. We choose five of the most innovative, interesting, and well-thought-out projects to highlight in our monthly report. As always, it was tough to narrow down the list of GitHub repos to our five favorites.
So, in no particular order, here are our top picks for December 2019.
This helpful tool became open source software and has been trending on GitHub since then. Sourcetrail is an interactive source code explorer that helps developers learn and understand what is going on in existing source code, providing useful context.
The UI consists of three different parts: search, graph, and code display.
Since Sourcetrail does not establish an internet connection, all confidential code is secure. All data remains securely on your local machine.
Test it out: Sourcetrail supports several code editors including Atom, CLion, Eclipse, Emacs, IntelliJ IDEA, Vim, and Visual Studio Code.
