GitHub is removing the Trending tab

In case you haven't seen it

Github

Personally, I use it a lot to discover cool new libraries.
What about you?

We are trending on GitHub now, probably for the last time :(
Can you help us with a like so we at least stay there a little bit more? ❀️

It seems they have decided to reconsider after the feedback they received on this. They took down the deprecation notice. And this is a link to a response to a discussion that indicates they are going to re-evaluate the decision.

That's actually a relief, we got all our growth from there 🀯

I'm glad to see they're reconsidering their decision, but I believe the narrative that the team surfaced as part of the feedback cycle. I do use the trending tab, but it is very infrequent, maybe once every 1-2 years.

I most recently used it in the last 90 days, and spent a decent amount of time going through different lists that had been put together. I got some value, but at the same time it wasn't exactly what I was hoping or with my browsing. The curated lists could likely be refined further, and maybe market their curations more frequently.

I think the Trending Tab is great but as you said it might need a bit of retouching

I was unaware it even existed until I read this post, and actually had to hunt around for it. I won't miss it if it goes.

This is one of the best way to discover new projects

I've never once considered GitHub as a place for that. I really wish services would stick to what they do well instead of turning everything into a social network with a feed.

Do people actively seek out new projects just because they're new or popular, without actually searching for something specific? If so, why? I don't see the point. Sure, I follow some tech news feeds and will sometimes take a look at interesting stuff... but I never think "Hey, I want to find some interesting new repos!"

I like the "You don't know what you don't know".
I used to write many stuff myself such as Authotization, Notifications and Payment
and then I discovered Novu, Permit and Lago.

Guys. Developers are becoming less exciting :(. A moment of silence, please.

I have always wondered why GitHub doesn’t have robust discover features like other social platforms. They have it for the GitHub actions but it’s pretty difficult to discover projects otherwise.
