Using basemaps with QGIS temporal controller

QGIS 3.14

Old version:

for i, layer in enumerate(QgsProject.instance().mapLayers().values()):
    if isinstance(layer, QgsRasterLayer):
        mode = QgsRasterLayerTemporalProperties.ModeFixedTemporalRange
        tprops = layer.temporalProperties()
        tprops.setFixedTemporalRange(QgsDateTimeRange(QDateTime(QDate(2020, 1, 1), QTime(1, i, 0, 0), Qt.UTC),
                                                   QDateTime(QDate(2020, 1, 1), QTime(1, 1+i, 0, 0), Qt.UTC)))


Github repo traffic

Get traffic of your repository.
GitHub provides traffic data for the last 14 days.
This code can be used to run one time of day or every 14 days to collect the traffic.

Python requirements (GithubAPI):
pip install githubpy

run the python file github_traffic.py
But First set this variables based on your repo:
Example: https://github.com/KIOS-Research/ImportPhotos
repo = ‘ImportPhotos’
org = ‘KIOS-Research’
token = ‘%token%’

Python code:

How to get your token:

Then generate token!
