Python 3.6+ interface to PyPI Stats API to get aggregate download statistics on Python packages on the Python Package Index without having to execute queries directly against Google BigQuery.

Data is available for the last 180 days. (For longer time periods, pypinfo can help, you'll need an API key and get free quota.)

Installation

From PyPI

pip install --upgrade pypistats

From source

git clone https://github.com/hugovk/pypistats
cd pypistats
pip install .

Example command-line use

Run pypistats with a subcommand (corresponding to PyPI Stats endpoints), then options for that subcommand.

Top-level help:

$ pypistats --help
usage: pypistats [-h] [-V]
                 {recent,overall,python_major,python_minor,system} ...

positional arguments:
  {recent,overall,python_major,python_minor,system}

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -V, --version         show program's version number and exit

Help for a subcommand:

$ pypistats recent --help
usage: pypistats recent [-h] [-p {day,week,month}]
                        [-f {json,markdown,rst,html}] [-j] [-v]
                        package

Retrieve the aggregate download quantities for the last day/week/month

positional arguments:
  package

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -p {day,week,month}, --period {day,week,month}
  -f {json,markdown,rst,html}, --format {json,markdown,rst,html}
                        The format of output (default: markdown)
  -j, --json            Shortcut for "-f json" (default: False)
  -v, --verbose         Print debug messages to stderr (default: False)

pypistats python_major pip --last-month
pypistats python_major pip --month april
pypistats python_major pip --month apr
pypistats python_major pip --month 2019-04

And:

pypistats python_major pip --start-date december --end-date january

NumPy and pandas

To use with either NumPy or pandas, make sure they are first installed, or:

pip install --upgrade "pypistats[numpy]"
pip install --upgrade "pypistats[pandas]"
pip install --upgrade "pypistats[numpy,pandas]"

Return data in a NumPy array for further processing:

import pypistats
numpy_array = pypistats.overall("pyvista", total=True, format="numpy")
print(type(numpy_array))
# <class 'numpy.ndarray'>
print(numpy_array)
# [['with_mirrors' '2019-09-20' '2.23%' 1204]
#  ['without_mirrors' '2019-09-20' '2.08%' 1122]
#  ['with_mirrors' '2019-09-19' '0.92%' 496]
#  ...
#  ['with_mirrors' '2019-10-26' '0.02%' 13]
#  ['without_mirrors' '2019-10-26' '0.02%' 12]
#  ['Total' None None 54041]]

Or in a pandas DataFrame:

import pypistats
pandas_dataframe = pypistats.overall("pyvista", total=True, format="pandas")
print(type(pandas_dataframe))
# <class 'pandas.core.frame.DataFrame'>
print(pandas_dataframe)
#             category        date percent  downloads
# 0       with_mirrors  2019-09-20   2.23%       1204
# 1    without_mirrors  2019-09-20   2.08%       1122
# 2       with_mirrors  2019-09-19   0.92%        496
# 3       with_mirrors  2019-08-22   0.90%        489
# 4    without_mirrors  2019-09-19   0.86%        466
# ..               ...         ...     ...        ...
# 354  without_mirrors  2019-11-03   0.03%         15
# 355  without_mirrors  2019-11-16   0.03%         15
# 356     with_mirrors  2019-10-26   0.02%         13
# 357  without_mirrors  2019-10-26   0.02%         12
# 358            Total        None    None      54041
#
# [359 rows x 4 columns]

For example, create charts with pandas:

# Show overall downloads over time, excluding mirrors
import pypistats
data = pypistats.overall("pillow", total=True, format="pandas")
data = data.groupby("category").get_group("without_mirrors").sort_values("date")

chart = data.plot(x="date", y="downloads", figsize=(10, 2))
chart.figure.show()
chart.figure.savefig("overall.png")  # alternatively

overall.png

# Show Python 3 downloads over time
import pypistats
data = pypistats.python_major("pillow", total=True, format="pandas")
data = data.groupby("category").get_group(3).sort_values("date")

chart = data.plot(x="date", y="downloads", figsize=(10, 2))
chart.figure.show()
chart.figure.savefig("python3.png")  # alternatively
