The fully automated processing of Awesome lists allows the health of various open source ecosystems to be captured and analyzed. This gives developers, user and contributors a better understanding whether additional resources are needed and which software packages have a healthy community and development.
So-called Awesome List are a central part of the open source ecosystem. They allow developers to get an overview of open source projects in different areas. A cross-platform search engine for open source projects does not yet exist. Therefore, they represent the central dictionary for the most diverse areas within the open source ecosystem. The Awesome.re website offers a central point of contact here, as it provides an overview of all subdomains. The central task of this list is to make projects within a subject area easier to find. Thus, users can browse appropriate resources. At the same time, developers can check which projects already exist, so that resources are concentrated and the wheel is not always reinvented.
The OpenSustain.tech website is based on such an Awesome list, and we are currently working on an open source tooling to analyze the state of the open source ecosystem in the area of climate change related open source technology.
