Community Packages Web Interface, w/ Instant Search!

Community Packages Web Interface, w/ Instant Search!

Postby wbond on Fri Dec 16, 2011 3:10 pm

My latest contribution to the Sublime community is a web interface to browse and get stats on the community packages available through Package Control.

http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/community

I've only been gathering stats for around 18 hours, but there is a fairly significant amount of information in there already. If you are a Package Control user and don't want to submit usage statistics, you can set the submit_usage setting to false (http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/packa ... l/settings).

Update (12/21/2011)
After less than a week the stats are up to well over 8,000 users and 26,000 package installs!

Nice, thanks. Do disabled packages also count as installs?

There are some surprisingly low numbers for some excellent plugins... interesting.

Yes, for the initial import, all packages that had evidence of being installed via Package Control are counted. There is no tracking of packages being disabled.

It is still pretty early from a statistics point of view since it has been less than 24 hours, however I would imagine sampling almost 1000 users already would give a general idea of the install percentages. I've been keeping an eye on it since yesterday and most of the percentages have stayed the same since around 100-200 users had submitted.

One possible reason for the low number for many plugins may be due to the fact that their readme files actively encourage using git, or manually downloading the package instead of using Package Control. I know that many of the plugins with high numbers have been promoted in popular blogs that also encourage using Package Control.

Goodah shit dude!
Install stats are based on a sampling of 5279 installs over 1366 users. Of those users, the platform breakdown is:

49% OS X


Interesting.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt

It's really interesting watching this grow. It gives you an idea of how many people are using sublime and how they're using it.
