The Foss Evaluation program will help facilitate the interaction between a researcher and the FOSS/HFOSS projects on the Internet in an easy to use interface to search and find a project based on given criteria. The main functions of the FOSS Evaluation program are to not only search for a project, but to also retrieve and display the following information, if available, for the project: project name, project description, lines of codes, number of commits, maturity of the project, number of downloads, average number of downloads and average number of commits. Based on this information, it can be determined if a project would be an appropriate candidate for a project for students or a particular class.

This project has been separated into different groups to account for the amount of people working on the project. The project consists of these teams:

Community Team
Document Team
Development Team
UI Team


  • Search for HFOSS/FOSS project by name.
