I'm going to look into this but I think it'd be better if a call to the API did not increase the install count for that bundle. I'm wanting to use the API for a bundle of mine but just noticed from looking here that every call I make to the API will result in a +1 to the install count for that bundle.

Perhaps have a flag that Artisan can set in the URI that enabled the increment or use an entirely different route. I'm not sure what you'd like to see here.

I think it would be nice to totally rename that route. But since that really isn't an option I guess the second best way would be to create one for access outside artisan.

Speaking of the api do you need anything else? Or just the bundle info?

Yeah can't really rename it now. Or you could, you'd just have to force everyone to update their artisan related things.

As for anything else... At the moment I just fetched the bundle information and then from there fetched further details from GitHub itself. What else could you provide? User details perhaps?

Are there any plans to fetch the download count (and maybe use that for popularity measurement) via the GitHub API?
