Python is #8 in the TIOBE index (October 2014), #4 in the Redmonk ranking (June 2014), and #3 in the Gartner index (October 2014).

Go is #42, #21, and #24, respectively. Rust is only on the Redmonk list at #58. Swift is #19, #68, and #29. Dart is #17, #38, and #22.

The methodology of this is always questionable but it's still fun to see languages grow and others fade.

What'd be fun is a relative measure of rate of change. Then you'd at least have something to normalize to so you could compare the rates of change or direction of change across indexes.
