Ecosystem Citation Index

A citation index is calculated for each module in the Perl6 Ecosystem, numbering 871 as of 2017-08-20.

279 Topline modules were cited, or 32.03% of the total.

A module simply cites another if it lists it in the "depends" list. A module recursively cites another if a cited module in turn cites another module.

The following modules are considered to exist in all installations and so excluded from this analysis: Test, NativeCall, zef.

This page contains the data for the top 50 modules in graphical form from the time data was collected to the present, tabulated for the top 50 modules. Modules not in the Ecosystem (possibly module meta data errors) are listed, followed by definitions and credits.
