Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Sorry for the confusion here - this part of the API changed when we moved "watching" to mean "starring" and is explained in this post from the API blog:
`watchers` corresponds to the number of users that have starred a repository, while `subscribers_count` corresponds to the number of watchers. For example, looking at the Atom repository:
Right now it has:
This is because there are 2468 watchers (= subscribers) and 48009 stargazers.
I hope that clears things up but if you have more questions, please let us know!
Hmm, not sure what the issue just from the code screenshot but are you able to reproduce the problem with `subscribers_count` with a `curl` request? For example, I see https://github.com/AgoraIO/Electron-SDK in your list of repositories but if I get that repository  with `curl`:
$ curl https://api.github.com/repos/AgoraIO/Electron-SDK | grep subscribers_count "subscribers_count": 34
We see `subscribers_count` in the response. If you can't reproduce with `curl`, my guess is that there's an issue with the code.
