Viewing a project's contributors
You can see who contributed commits to a repository and its dependencies.
This repository insights graph is available in public repositories with GitHub Free, and in public and private repositories with GitHub Pro, GitHub Team, GitHub Enterprise Cloud, and GitHub Enterprise Server. For more information, see "About repository graphs" and "GitHub's products."

You can view the top 100 contributors to a repository in the contributors graph. Merge commits and empty commits aren't counted as contributions for this graph.
You can also see a list of people who have contributed to the project's Python dependencies. To access this list of community contributors, visit
Accessing the contributors graph
On GitHub, navigate to the main page of the repository.
Under your repository name, click Insights.
In the left sidebar, click Contributors.
Optionally, to view contributors during a specific time period, click, then drag until the time period is selected.
If you don't appear in a repository's contributors graph, it may be because:
- You aren't one of the top 100 contributors.
- Your commits haven't been merged into the default branch.
- The email address you used to author the commits hasn't been added to your GitHub account.
Tip: To list all commit contributors in a repository, see "Repositories" in the GitHub Developer documentation.
If all your commits in the repository are on non-default branches, you won't be in the contributors graph. For example, commits on the
gh-pages branch aren't included in the graph unless
gh-pages is the repository's default branch. To have your commits merged into the default branch, you can create a pull request. For more information, see "About pull requests."
If the email address you used to author the commits has not been added to your GitHub account, your commits won't be linked to your account, and you won't appear in the contributors graph. For more information, see "Setting your commit email address" and "Adding an email address to your GitHub account."
