Omnis class organization poll results
That would be interesting, although I feel you’d need to compress the libraries to get a fair comparison. As I understand it libraries as essentially datafiles. As such, they’re prone to fragmentation and can carry extra dead space. Of course, not all code compresses the same…so perhaps sizing a clean JSON dump of a library would give the best apples-to-apples comparison.
I was also considering a poll on which version of Studio everyone is running, or another asking about plans to update to Studio 8.1. The tools we’ve open-sourced are in 8.1 because that’s where the JSON export is, but I worry the version requirement is prohibitive to other developers using them.
