R Question

Check how many times a package was installed from CRAN

Is there a way/place I can get simple metrics for


  1. How many times package X was installed and/or

  2. How many users installed package X



I recently released my own package on CRAN and I want to monitor it a bit.

Answer

http://cranlogs.r-pkg.org offers a variety of ways to access counts of the number of times a package has been downloaded (not installed) from the RStudio CRAN mirror (only), including an API for generating badges automatically and an R package.

For the mltools package:
