Report number of lines per language in repository charts
As of now, repository charts report percentage of language in the repo. First, it is not obvious how this percentage is computed (number of files? number of lines? bytes? what about comments? libraries?). Second, I would love to see some absolute data (number of files, lines, bytes).
As a user I would like to see the number of lines of code per language. Ideally, excluding blank lines and comments, but that is optional.
As for use cases:
- better understand the repo structure
- if this is your repo, being able to report the number of lines of your main language
- this is one of the metric employers would like to know (I personally was surprised by this question on interview and could not clearly respond)
- all those use cases for general repo graphs (like pie chart of languages)
