pypinfo accepts 0 or more options, followed by exactly 1 project, followed by 0 or more fields. By default only the last 30 days are queried. Let's take a look at some examples!

Tip: If queries are resulting in NoneType errors, increase timeout.

Percentage of Python 3 downloads of the top 100 projects in the past year

Let's use --test to only see the query instead of sending it.

$ pypinfo --test --days 365 --limit 100 "" project percent3
SELECT
    file.project as project,
    ROUND(100 * SUM(CASE WHEN REGEXP_EXTRACT(details.python, r"^([^\.]+)") = "3" THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) / COUNT(*), 1) as percent_3,
    COUNT(*) as download_count,
FROM `bigquery-public-data.pypi.file_downloads`
WHERE timestamp BETWEEN TIMESTAMP_ADD(CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(), INTERVAL -366 DAY) AND TIMESTAMP_ADD(CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(), INTERVAL -1 DAY)
    AND details.installer.name = "pip"
GROUP BY
    project
ORDER BY
    download_count DESC
LIMIT 100

Downloads for a given version

pypinfo supports PEP 440 version matching.

We can use it to query stats on a given major version.

$ pypinfo -pc 'pip==21.*' pyversion version
Served from cache: False
Data processed: 34.45 MiB
Data billed: 35.00 MiB
Estimated cost: $0.01

| python_version | version | percent | download_count |
| -------------- | ------- | ------- | -------------- |

| 3.8            | 21.3.1  |   7.81% |          1,034 |

| Total          |         |         |         13,246 |

We can also use it to query stats on an exact version:

$ pypinfo -pc 'numpy==1.23rc3' pyversion version

| 3.10           | 1.23.0rc3 |   8.33% |              5 |
| Total          |           |         |             60 |

Installation

Click to unfold installation

pypinfo is distributed on PyPI as a universal wheel and is available on Linux/macOS and Windows and supports Python 3.7+.

This is relatively painless, I swear.

Create project

  1. Go to https://bigquery.cloud.google.com.

  2. Sign up if you haven't already. The first TB of queried data each month is free. Each additional TB is $5.

  3. Sign in on your account if you are not already;

  4. Go to https://console.developers.google.com/cloud-resource-manager and click CREATE PROJECT if you don't already have one:

create

  1. This takes you to https://console.developers.google.com/projectcreate. Fill out the form and click CREATE. Any name is fine, but I recommend you choose something to do with PyPI like pypinfo. This way you know what the project is designated for:

click

  1. A while after creation, at the left-top corner, select the project name of your choice on dropdown component AND at the left-top corner "Navigation Menu", select option "Cloud Overview > Dashboard":

show

Enable BigQuery API

  1. Click on top-left button "Navigation Menu" and click on option "API and services > Library":

api_library

  1. Perform a search with keywords "big query api" on available text field:

big_query_api_search

  1. Enable Big Query API by button "Enable" press:

big_query_api

  1. After enabling, click CREATE CREDENTIALS:

credentials

Note: You will be requested to go back to Big Query panel. In this case, click on top-left button "Navigation Menu", option "API and services > Enabled APIs and services" and on consequent page, on item "Big Query API":

enabled_credentials

  1. On the page after clicking the "CREATE CREDENTIALS" button, choose "BigQuery API", "Application Data" and "No, I'm not using them":

credentials_page_1

  1. Fill account details and press button "Create and Continue":

credentials_page_2

  1. Select role "BigQuery User" (option path "BigQuery > Big Query User"), press button "Done":

credentials_page_3

  1. On Big Query API panel (See Note on item 10), click on tab "CREDENTIALS". On section "Service accounts", click on created credentials on items 11, 12 and 13.

create_service_credential_key

  1. On page from credential click, click on tab "KEYS". On dropdown menu "ADD KEY", click on option "Create new key":

create_credential_key

  1. On appearing box, click on option "JSON" and press button "CREATE": This will start the download of credentials on a JSON file with name pattern {name}-{credentials_hash}.json:

create_private_key

Installation and authentication

  1. Run python -m pip install pypinfo in the terminal.
  2. pypinfo --auth path/to/your_credentials.json, or set an environment variable GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS that points to the file.
