Top 10 C projects on Github

C is a general-purpose, imperative computer programming language, supporting structured programming, lexical variable scope and recursion, while a static type system prevents many unintended operations.
By design, C provides constructs that map efficiently to typical machine instructions, and therefore it has found lasting use in applications that had formerly been coded in assembly language, including operating systems, as well as various application software for computers ranging from supercomputers to embedded systems.


Linux is a family of free and open-source software operating systems built around the Linux kernel.
Typically, Linux is packaged in a form known as a Linux distribution (or distro for short) for both desktop and server use.
The defining component of a Linux distribution is the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991, by Linus Torvalds. Linux is written primarily in C and assembly language.


Redis is often referred as a data structures server.
What this means is that Redis provides access to mutable data structures via a set of commands, which are sent using a server-client model with TCP sockets and a simple protocol.
So different processes can query and modify the same data structures in a shared way.


netdata is a system for distributed real-time performance and health monitoring.
It provides unparalleled insights, in real-time, of everything happening on the system it runs (including applications such as web and database servers), using modern interactive web dashboards.
netdata is fast and efficient, designed to permanently run on all systems (physical & virtual servers, containers, IoT devices), without disrupting their core function.


Git is a fast, scalable, distributed revision control system with an unusually rich command set that provides both high-level operations and full access to internals.
Git is an Open Source project covered by the GNU General Public License version 2 (some parts of it are under different licenses, compatible with the GPLv2).
It was originally written by Linus Torvalds with help of a group of hackers around the net.


NumPy (NUM-pee)) is a library for the Python programming language, adding support for large, multi-dimensional arrays and matrices, along with a large collection of high-level mathematical functions to operate on these arrays.
The ancestor of NumPy, Numeric, was originally created by Jim Hugunin with contributions from several other developers.
In 2005, Travis Oliphant created NumPy by incorporating features of the competing Numarray into Numeric, with extensive modifications.
NumPy is open-source software and has many contributors.


Vim is a greatly improved version of the good old UNIX editor Vi.
Many new features have been added: multi-level undo, syntax highlighting, command line history, on-line help, spell checking, filename completion, block operations, script language, etc.
There is also a Graphical User Interface (GUI) available.
Still, Vi compatibility is maintained, those who have Vi "in the fingers" will feel at home.


wrk is a modern HTTP benchmarking tool capable of generating significant load when run on a single multi-core CPU.
It combines a multithreaded design with scalable event notification systems such as epoll and kqueue.
An optional LuaJIT script can perform HTTP request generation, response processing, and custom reporting.


cURL is a computer software project providing a library and command-line tool for transferring data using various protocols.
The cURL project produces two products, libcurl and cURL.
It was first released in 1997.
The name originally stood for "see URL".
The original author and lead developer is the Swedish developer Daniel Stenberg.


OpenResty is a full-fledged web application server by bundling the standard nginx core, lots of 3rd-party nginx modules, as well as most of their external dependencies.
This bundle is maintained by Yichun Zhang (agentzh).
Because most of the nginx modules are developed by the bundle maintainers, it can ensure that all these modules are played well together.
The bundled software components are copyrighted by the respective copyright holders.


img Darknet is an open source neural network framework written in C and CUDA.
It is fast, easy to install, and supports CPU and GPU computation.



Boostlog is an online community for developers
who want to share ideas and grow each other.
