Language usage in GitHub projects: https://madnight.github.io/githut/#/pull_requests/2021/3

A similar statistic can also be found in: https://githut.info/

Be aware that a source of bias in those figures is that github mostly hosts open and free software.

That means that the part of the programming world that doesn't want to share won't be well represented. So for example, I can't see Ada at all but I can see Smalltalk - my instinct is that there is much more Ada written every year than Smalltalk but it is written in places that mandate Ada and are very much unminded to share their code outside of 4 very well guarded walls.

With python being so much ahead of PHP and Javascript, hopefully we see it being integrated to web browsers in the future.
It would be so great to generate .html files with python code executed in them.

TIOBE Index for January 2022
January Headline: Python Programming Language of the Year 2021

Python has won the prestigious TIOBE Programming Language of the Year award. Congratulations! This is the second time in a row. The award is given to the programming language that has gained the highest increase in ratings in one year. C# was on its way to get the title for the first time in history, but Python surpassed C# in the last month.

Python started at position #3 of the TIOBE index at the beginning of 2021 and left both Java and C behind to become the number one of the TIOBE index. But Python's popularity didn't stop there. It is currently more than 1 percent ahead of the rest. Java's all time record of 26.49% ratings in 2001 is still far away, but Python has it all to become the de facto standard programming language for many domains. There are no signs that Python's triumphal march will stop soon.

Are there any serious contenders for Python? Any new and shiny languages that might compete in the future? If we look at the promising languages of the last few years, we see the following changes in 2021: Swift from #13 to #10, Go from #14 to #13, Rust from #26 to #26, Julia from #23 to #28, Kotlin from #40 to #29, Dart from #25 to #37, and TypeScript from #42 to #49. So, except may be for Swift and Go, we don't expect any new languages entering the top 5 or even the top 3 any time soon.
