Historical Rubygem Download Charts

Published on February 25, 2019

Today I'm happy to announce the launch of historical Rubygem download charts.

On each Rubygem's page you can now find a chart displaying both the total number of downloads as well as the downloads per month, starting in late 2010.

The dataset was reconstructed from Ruby Toolbox backups as well as the API. Thanks a lot to the Bestgems creator xmisao for collecting and providing this data!

You can also find an overview of how the dataset was reconstructed on our corresponding documentation page.

As usual if you'd like to give feedback or have suggestions for improvements on this a great place for that is the Pull Request of the feature.
