Feature request: Usage stats split by version
What’s the feature?
Provide the ability to access stats on package use split by package version
What problem is the feature intended to solve?
As a package owner, I’d like to know what the usage is like for various versions. e.g. I’m working on v6, have released a beta, and want to be sure a decent number of people are battle testing it before I release v6 proper
Is the absence of this feature blocking you or your team? If so, how?
No, but it’d give me the ability to release with more confidence
Is this feature similar to an existing feature in another tool?
It’s not unusual for projects to offer granular usage stats, though I can’t think of any examples off the top of my head
Is this a feature you’re prepared to implement, with support from the npm CLI team?
Copied from https://github.com/npm/registry/issues/266
libraries.io kind of gives a breakdown per version.
marked seems to have most users on v0.3.6
That’s really neat - thanks for sharing. I wonder how they do it?
However, it doesn’t quite fulfil the needs of the issue because:
- it appears to not update very often (e.g. missing some releases I made 2 days ago)
- it bundles many things into ‘other’. Beta releases woudl probably fall in here, so would get no information on betas
