How can I see when a project was forked?

I would like to see the commits that took place after a fork. Or to know what date the fork took place so that I can know at what point in the commit history the fork happened.

For example, I would like to see what the team here did after the fork of litecoin, but I dont know where in the commit history starts their team and fork vs litecoin’s team and original project.

I see there is a network and fork tab in the insights, but neither display anything for the project above, because of the network size, or whatever.


I don’t know of a way to see when exactly a project was forked. If you want to know approximately when work started based on the commit history, that’s probably much easier. You can go into the commit history on the project and if you append ?author=username to the URL, it will show you only the commits for username. Since the fork belongs to HashUnlimited, it stands to reason that they would be the first to add commits to their fork and the earliest commit I can see from them using the ?author=HashUnlimited method is 19 July 2017.

I hope that helps!
