Download counter on GitHub


I didn’t see an Download Counter on any Project.

This could be useful to find out if it’s famous or several people used it.



you can  use github developers api to check that

I would really like to see a built-in counter for downloads. That seems pretty useful for developers and users. Having to write our own and only good for 2 weeks is really not helpful.

Can GitHub reconsider adding this feature? I’m sure others would applaud this capability.

There is this where you can check download stats online. Should be fairly easy to integrate into gh-pages. However if you want a badge for Readme you would need an external service/api.
