Heat Map on GitHub

Hello!
I have a question about GitHub.
There is a heat map there. Why the marks are in different shades of green? Does it depend of how many files were downloaded or when you add or change something into the existing folders it marks it in light green on the other day as well?
Could I put into repository the code, but write text there on other day?

Thanks!

Their documentation should help you understand what that heatmap is about - https://docs.github.com/en/github/setting-up-and-managing-your-github-profile/viewing-contributions-on-your-profile#contributions-calendar
