JavaScript hubReport: #1

This post looks at the top 10 JavaScript projects on GitHub that were created in the last 30 days.

hubReports: Project review

hubReports is a side project of mine. It's a site that gathers data from GitHub on a daily basis and then presents it via the website. I went live with the latest interation of it on November 1st 2013 and thought it was time to review how I think it did and where to go next.
