Community Health Analytics for Open Source Software

GrimoireLab is one of CHAOSS Software founding projects

Free, libre, open source tools for
software development analytics

How it works Aim and components

The aim of this project is to provide an open source platform for:

  1. Automatic and incremental data gathering from almost any tool (data source) related with contributing to Open Source development (source code management, issue tracking systems, forums, etc.)
  2. Automatic gathered data enrichment, merging duplicated identities, adding additional information about contributors affiliation, calculation delays, geographical data, etc.
  3. Data visualization, allowing filtering by time range, project, repository, contributor, etc.

Supported data sources

Source Code Management

Git, Baazar(*), Mercurial(*) (*exporting to git)

Issues / Tasks Management

Bugzilla, GitHub Issues, GitLab Issues, JIRA, Maniphest, Redmine

Source Code Review

Gerrit, GitHub Pull Requests, GitLab Merge Requests

Mailing lists / Forums

Askbot, Discourse, Gmane, Hyperkitty, mbox files, NNTP, Pipermail, Stack Exchange

Continuous Integration


Synchronous Conferencing

IRC (Supybot), Slack, Telegram


Confluence, MediaWiki

Meetings Management



DockerHub, RSS


Each piece of the platform includes its own documentation, but if you want to start playing with it, we recommend you to go to the open book we are writing about it:

GrimoireLab Tutorial


The platform provides the following components:


Sir Perceval goes on the quest to retrieve and gather data from git, GitHub, Bugzilla, JIRA, Gerrit, mbox, pipermail, StackExchange, Discourse, etc.

Check Perceval repository


King Arthur commands his loyal knight Sir Perceval mananging the tasks to retrieve data for analysis. It manages data incremental update, parallel downloading, etc.

Check Arthur repository


Playground for testing the whole set of tools as a platform for software development analytics. It's is a prototype of the Grimoire Open Development Analytics platform.

Check GrimoireELK repository

Sorting Hat

Tool to manage people identities information, to merge multiple person identities across different data sources, enrich profile information with affiliation information, etc.

Check Sorting Hat repository


Custom fork of Kibana to work on new ideas for metrics & data visualization to be used by GrimoireLab Panels.

Check KiBiter repository


Set of pre-defined widgets and dashboard templates to visualize Elasticsearch indexes generated by GrimoireELK with KiBiter.

Check Sigils repository


Docker container to help you deploying the Grimoire Lab using a set of configuration files.

Check Mordred repository


Automatic generation of reports from the enriched indexes with items from Perceval data sources (git commits, github pull requests, bugzilla bugs ...) enriched using GrimoireELK.

GrimoireLab is an evolution of the work done during +10 years by Bitergia, LibreSoft URJC research group and several contributors in Metrics Grimoire, VizGrimorie and GrimoireLib projects, to provide Open Development Analytics.

Since September 2017, GrimoireLab is part of The Linux Foundation CHAOSS Software community as one of the founding projects.

We truly free, libre, open source software and the power of the Community, so these set of tools are and always will be free, open source software. Feel free to contribute!
