Download counts of CRAN packages

R-hub simplifies your getting download counts of CRAN packages from RStudio's CRAN mirror download logs, that RStudio publishes daily at http://cran-logs.rstudio.com. The RStudio CRAN mirror is not the only CRAN mirror, but it’s a popular one: it’s the default choice for RStudio users. The actual number of downloads over all CRAN mirrors is unknown. Therefore, using numbers of downloads from that mirror is a proxy for actual numbers of downloads, and when analysing it one has to assume the observed trends are representative of what happens via other mirrors.
