Graphistry’s 2019 in open source has numbers that signal a rising tide in the data world

Posted by Graphistry Staff on January 2, 2020

Graphistry 2019 in open source signals quite a change:

  • PyGraphistry: ⭐️1K+ stars and πŸ‘¨β€πŸ”§100+ forks
    PyGraphistry is a library to extract, transform, and visually explore big graphs
  • Apache Arrow: πŸ†Top 2019 data project (O’Reilly), πŸ‘¨β€πŸ”§400+ contributors
    Apache Arrow is a cross-language development platform for in-memory data. It specifies a standardized language-independent columnar memory format for flat and hierarchical data, organized for efficient analytic operations on modern hardware…
  • RAPIDS (cuDF, …): πŸ†Top 2019 data project(Infoworld), πŸ‘¨β€πŸ”§ 100+ contributors
    Open GPU Data Science

We’ve been on a big journey to make modern end-to-end GPU data techniques the easy path. When Graphistry started, it was impossible to build the analyst experience we envisioned: we were just some crazy people with some election hacking demos and rejected NSF GPU dataframe proposals. We knew we had to make a lot of behind-the-scenes open source infrastructure investments to change the laws of software physics.

Amazingly, years later, the numbers are starting to say the tide is now rising. We’re increasingly able to focus our energy on building analyst experiences to leverage all this.


Thank you, & here’s to everyone building even more awesome data experiences in 2020!
