I remember when I started my project Climoji, I wanted to see how many downloads it had and if it was useful.
The problem is that data was removed from PyPI, and it isn’t easy to get download stats of that project. If you want this data, you should query the data in the official download stats repository, and it is tedious. Also, if you want to add a fantastic badge like the one below, it was impossible.
To solve that problem, I created pepy.tech. It queries the official data for you, and also it generates a badge to insert into your README.md, like this one: .
Now it is quite popular in the Python community, as a lot of popular libraries use this badge to display download stats. Some of these libraries are:
Here is the number of users visiting pepy.tech each week from the beginning of the project. Currently, the site has over 1000 weekly visitors.
I hope this project helped the community. I will try to improve it in the future.
