Tell how many users are on the latest plugin version

Use case or problem

As a plugin developer I frequently patch bugs or ship new features and I’d like to know if anyone is updating aka how many people are on the latest version. Seeing this number go up will keep me motivated to push new functionality.

Proposed solution

The simplest would be to add next to the downloads a section with how many users are on the latest version.

Current workaround (optional)

None. I guess I’d have to implement custom tracking somehow.

You can use: https://tooomm.github.io/github-release-stats/, or you can take a look at this file: https://github.com/obsidianmd/obsidian-releases/blob/master/community-plugin-stats.json to see download stats.

Running any sort of client-side analytics on plugins is explicitly forbidden as per our Developer policies, and will mean that your plugin will be removed from the list.
