[Github API V3] Listing repository languages only seems to support Python and C

First of all I would like to extend my thanks for the amazing documentation and API that Github provides, it is really useful to us ! 

The endpoint to fetch the list of languages for a specific repository only lists “Python” and “C” as the possible responses https://developer.github.com/v3/repos/#list-languages

I am wondering if this is by design or maybe it has not been updated ? If we refer to Github’s UI there seems to be a far broader array of languages supported.

If this is indeed an issue and needs to be updated, would it be possible to have a rough estimate of when this could be fixed ?

Cheers !

Hi @niceplace,

Thank you for being here! That should be an example on our documentation using the https://developer.github.com/v3/repos/#list-languages will list all the languages for the selected repository. For example:

https://api.github.com/repos/andreagriffiths11/spanish-quiz/languages

Returns:

{
  "Java": 7200
}

I hope this helps!
