Highlighting Repository Languages

Today we pushed a redesigned feature that highlights language statistics on repository home pages, allowing you to quickly see what languages a repository contains. It’s a great way to get a general picture of a repository before you dive into the code.

We’re using linguist to collect language statistics from repositories. Linguist is aware of common files and directories, so code like jquery or directories labeled vendor won’t be included in the final count. If you happen to spot a language that linguist doesn’t recognize, let us know!
