VersionEye + Magento

Magento is one of the biggest open source ecommerce shops. It has a modular architecture. That means extensions can be provided as Magento modules. Some of the core modules are available as composer packages. The Magento Composer page is hosted here http://packages.magento.com/ via Satis.

Now VersionEye is crawling http://packages.magento.com/ once a day. Some of the packages are listed here. Now you can follow these Magento packages and you will receive automatically a email notification as soon a new version is available.

Beside the Magento repository VersionEye is crawling the Firegento repository as well. All together VersionEye is tracking more than 50K PHP packages on a daily basis.

Most referenced packages

We just updated our language pages. Up to now we only displayed the top 10 followed packages and the 10 currently updated packages. Now we display also the top 10 referenced packages from that language. Here is an example for the Ruby page.

The first columns shows the top 10 packages with the most references. Rspec is the most referenced package in Ruby! 19498 other GEMs are referencing it. It has more references then Ruby on Rails.

Feel free to checkout the other language pages as well:

VersionEye started its first Meetup group “Geek2Geek”

ImageGeek2Geek is a monthly Berlin Tech Talk. Our goal is to bring software developers with a diverse background together. We noticed that the coding community is often isolated, meaning that PHP devs. are only going to PHP UG’s and Java devs. solely to Java UG’s

However, we believe that we could achieve great things if we connect. If you’re a open source developer, start-up, techie, or geek using Java, Ruby, Python, Node.JS, PHP, JavaScript, R or Clojure, this group is for you!

Our first meetup is on July 23, 2013 and we’re pleased to announce that the speakers for our first Geek2Geek meetup are Christoph Beckmann from KaufDA and Tobias Balling from BLINKIST. This time we will focus on “IT infrastructure for DevOps”.

Christoph Beckmann
Christoph is team lead at KaufDA. He’s developing preferably with the Grails framework and is a DevOp expert. Over the past 2 1/2 years he has helped build the international KaufDA IT team. Previously, he gained experience at a consulting firm in Cologne and founded Germany’s first toilet search engine. Christoph will show how KaufDA manages its infrastructure with puppet in 5 countries.

Tobias Balling
Tobias is CTO at BLINKIST. He’s is currently thinking about the perfect presentation topic. So, more details are coming soon!

Thanks to VersionEye, snacks and beer are available for free, while supplies last. We’re looking forward to meeting you!

VersionEye’s new Dependency Badges

We are happy to announce that VersionEye now provides new dependency badges for Java, Ruby, PHP and Node.JS. They are available on every package page and look like this:

With the help of the badges you can see immediately if the dependencies of a software library are up-to-date, out-of-date or unknown. Click on the badges and a pop-up window will appear with code snippets for mostly used markup languages. To add the badges to your GitHub Readme.md or other HTML pages, simply copy and paste.

Image
Good news: The badges are also available for your public VersionEye projects.

You know a project is up-to-date when all of a project’s dependencies are up-to-date.

Can’t wait to see these badges on GitHub!  :-)
