Python overtakes Java to become second most popular language on GitHub after JavaScript

GitHub’s annual "State of the Octoverse" report shows that Python has overtaken Java as the second most popular language after JavaScript, based on the primary language of repository contributors. Python is not the fastest growing language though, that honour belongs to Dart, up 532 per cent, probably thanks to the growth of Flutter, Google’s cross-platform development framework. Next is Rust with 235 per cent growth. Python was up by 151 per cent, impressive given that it was already a top-three language.
