I am interested in Bioconductor and I want to dive into the stats pages

Is there a way to get a downloable file with the stats or do I need to do it one by one?

Is there any other parsable stats page? This is the only type of stats page apart from this other one

PS: I previously posted this at biostars.org, but they redirected me here.

You need to scrape the package stats pages one by one. There is no publicly available page that has all the stats on it.

Note that the data are not 100% reliable; occasionally you'll have a rogue cluster downloading packages to all its nodes every day and that causes a spike in downloads for some packages. So the numbers are accurate but do not always reflect actual unique end users.

Yes I am aware they are not 100% reliable. There isn't any historic download page, so I can't know the absolute number of download neither.

Thanks for the answer.

Hi Lluis,

Here are some statistics in our latest newsletter - 

http://www.bioconductor.org/help/newsletters/2015_January/#project-statistics

Also our dashboard has some stats -

Thanks,

Sonali.

The latest newsletter, doesn't provide stats of individual packages.

I wasn't aware of the dashboard I couldn't find any link even when searching on the main page. But it provides just information of a couple of packages. 

But thanks for the information!

The annual reports provide a running log of download statistics, although these are not entirely consistent.
