Usage rates are a vital metric for every open-source project maintainer. It's been a while since we shared our latest Allure Report usage stats. In the meantime, Allure gets close to 3 million monthly users and 3000 GitHub stars! Let's take a closer look at the numbers.
Allure Report is an open source, lightweight multi-language test report tool maintained by Qameta Software.
Allure Report Users and usage
Let me add the usual disclaimer: our analytics are limited as it contain only users sharing anonymous statistics who make reports on open networks. That means, there are lots of Reports generated in shadow for us. Even with that, we've got 200k more monthly users and 7 million more reports.
Let's dig a bit deeper: we get 409k+ daily users on average. In detail, Monday-Wednesday number is around 450k users, while on the weekend there are around 350k-380k of users (or would it be more correct to say CI's). Looks good, as this means that most reports are generated automatically (or someone is systematically overtimes).
With a simple calculation we get around 15-16 reports per user. So, it looks like a report is generated every working day, except... Friday? Maybe, as the Friday numbers are slightly lower. Of course, these are mere assumptions, but it's always interesting to build a hypothesis around large numbers.
We, as the Qameta Software team and TestOps ambassadors, recommend running tests as frequently as possible, including weekends and nights! Just automate the runs and let the testers dig into “nighly” results by day.
Our main allure2 repo is almost at 3k stars goal! It's been a long way and we're thrilled to beat the score to move on. In fact, it results in 0,1% of users dropping us a star! So, if you use Allure Report and want to support us - drop us a star at the project's Github Page!
