Here is a free service to discover recent activities of any GitHub user. This service is named as “Gitstalk“. From comments to commits, branch to repo, you can see what a particular user has done recently on GitHub. A lot of important items are visible in the latest activities of a GitHub user. For example, you can see the issue closed by user on a particular date, comment created on an issue, repo starred by user, branch created, commit pushed to a particular repository, branch deleted, and more. That simply means you can track what a GitHub user has done recently.
Though GitHub also provides feature to check contribution activity of a user by accessing user profile, there you can see only the total number of commits in repositories, total number of repositories created, created issues, opened issues, etc. This service on the other hand gives a lot more information. You will see the difference yourself once you will try this service.
Let’s check the screenshot added below. As you can see, this service is showing all the latest activities of a particular GitHub user. Each activity is visible separately with the necessary information and date. The repo link is also provided where some commit, comment, or other activities has happened. This helps you quickly access that repo.
Now see the screenshot that I added below. This is the contribution activity section for the same user on GitHub. You can clearly see the difference and that’s why this service is handy.
