How are community plugin download stats calculated?


it’s nice that Obsidian counts how many times community plugins have been downloaded. The stats are visible in Obsidian itself (in the community plugins list), and on GitHub as a community-plugin-stats.json file.

The JSON file even tells how many times specific versions of a plugin have been downloaded.

I’d like know, how these statistics are counted?

  • If I upgrade a plugin that I’ve already downloaded, does it count as a download too?
  • I assume that if I install a plugin to five of my vaults, it is registered as five downloads, not one?

Thanks! :slightly_smiling_face:
