Viewing contribution activity in a repository

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 commits that don't include changes aren't included in this graph.

Repository members graph

You can view graphs for each contributor below the main graph. Commit co-authors can also be considered repository contributors if their commits are merged into the repository's default branch.

Troubleshooting repository contribution activity

If your GitHub username is not appearing in the repository's contributors graph, it may be because you are not one of the top 100 contributors, you have unmerged commits, or your email address hasn't been added to your GitHub account.

Tip: To see all commit contributors to a repository, use the GitHub API.

If you only have commits on an unmerged branch, you will not show up on the graph. To have your commits merged, you can open a pull request.

Commits made to the gh-pages branch won't be reflected in the repository's contributors graph unless gh-pages is the repository's default branch.

If you haven't set your commit email address in Git to your GitHub account, your commits will not be linked to your account and you will not show up in the contributors graph.
