Download counts of CRAN packages
2018-01-28 22:01:36 +0100

R-hub simplifies your getting download counts of CRAN packages from RStudio's CRAN mirror download logs, that RStudio publishes daily at 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.
