GHTorrent API

The GHTorrent API is a project based service for developers that is working to make the GitHub REST API queriable. By creating a scalable, offline mirroring of the data offered through the GitHub REST API, it provides tools for such services as monitoring GitHub's public events timeline, offering a messaging queue that sits between event mirroring and data retrieval phases to be able to run on a cluster of machines, and release data collected during the phases as downloadable archives. It collects information from the GitHub API and populates it into two data bases: raw data and linked entities.
