Count number of lines in a GitHub repository without cloning
There are similar questions but all of them need you to clone repository and then run some utility on it.
I need a web-service which can give me those stats (something like using an URL e.g.
http://my-sloc-counter.com/project1 to get SLOC stats for project1 from GitHub)
One Solution collect form web for “Count number of lines in a GitHub repository without cloning”
For GitHub specifically, you have a possibility to compute an approximation of that data (LOC: Lines of Code) through the GitHub Statistics API.
You can see an example in “Can you get the number of lines of code from a Github repository?”, which does not involve cloning the repo.
