A simple CLI to access PyPI download statistics via Google’s BigQuery


pypinfo is a simple CLI to access PyPI download statistics via Google’s BigQuery.

Installation

pypinfo is distributed on PyPI as a universal wheel and is available on Linux/macOS and Windows and supports Python 3.6+.

This is relatively painless, I swear.

Create project

Go to https://bigquery.cloud.google.com.

Sign up if you haven’t already. The first TB of queried data each month is free. Each additional TB is $5.

Go to https://console.developers.google.com/cloud-resource-manager and click CREATE PROJECT if you don’t already have one:

This takes you to https://console.developers.google.com/projectcreate. Fill out the form and click CREATE. Any name is fine, but I recommend you choose something to do with PyPI like pypinfo. This way you know what the project is designated for:

The next page should show your new project. If not, reload the page and select from the top menu:

Enable BigQuery API

Go to https://console.cloud.google.com/apis/api/bigquery-json.googleapis.com/overview and make sure the correct project is chosen using the drop-down on top. Click the ENABLE button:

After enabling, click CREATE CREDENTIALS:

Choose the “BigQuery API” and “No, I’m not using them”:

Fill in a name, and select role “BigQuery User” (if the “BigQuery” is not an option in the list, wait 15-20 minutes and try creating the credentials again), and select a JSON key:

Click continue and the JSON will download to your computer. Note the download location. Move the file wherever you want:

  1. pip install pypinfo
  2. pypinfo --auth path/to/your_credentials.json, or set an environment variable GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS that points to the file.

Usage

$ pypinfo
Usage: pypinfo [OPTIONS] [PROJECT] [FIELDS]... COMMAND [ARGS]...

  Valid fields are:

  project | version | file | pyversion | percent3 | percent2 | impl | impl-version |

  openssl | date | month | year | country | installer | installer-version |

  setuptools-version | system | system-release | distro | distro-version | cpu |

  libc | libc-version

Options:
  -a, --auth TEXT         Path to Google credentials JSON file.
  --run / --test          --test simply prints the query.
  -j, --json              Print data as JSON, with keys `rows` and `query`.
  -i, --indent INTEGER    JSON indentation level.
  -t, --timeout INTEGER   Milliseconds. Default: 120000 (2 minutes)
  -l, --limit TEXT        Maximum number of query results. Default: 10
  -d, --days TEXT         Number of days in the past to include. Default: 30
  -sd, --start-date TEXT  Must be negative or YYYY-MM[-DD]. Default: -31
  -ed, --end-date TEXT    Must be negative or YYYY-MM[-DD]. Default: -1
  -m, --month TEXT        Shortcut for -sd & -ed for a single YYYY-MM month.
  -w, --where TEXT        WHERE conditional. Default: file.project = "project"
  -o, --order TEXT        Field to order by. Default: download_count
  --all                   Show downloads by all installers, not only pip.
  -pc, --percent          Print percentages.
  -md, --markdown         Output as Markdown.
  -v, --verbose           Print debug messages to stderr.
  --version               Show the version and exit.
  -h, --help              Show this message and exit.

pypinfo accepts 0 or more options, followed by exactly 1 project, followed by 0 or more fields. By default only the last 30 days are queried. Let’s take a look at some examples!

Tip: If queries are resulting in NoneType errors, increase timeout.

Percentage of Python 3 downloads of the top 100 projects in the past year

Let’s use --test to only see the query instead of sending it.

$ pypinfo --test --days 365 --limit 100 "" project percent3
SELECT
  file.project as project,
  ROUND(100 * SUM(CASE WHEN REGEXP_EXTRACT(details.python, r"^([^.]+)") = "3" THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) / COUNT(*), 1) as percent_3,
  COUNT(*) as download_count,
FROM `bigquery-public-data.pypi.file_downloads`
WHERE timestamp BETWEEN TIMESTAMP_ADD(CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(), INTERVAL -366 DAY) AND TIMESTAMP_ADD(CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(), INTERVAL -1 DAY)
  AND details.installer.name = "pip"
GROUP BY
  project
ORDER BY
  download_count DESC
LIMIT 100
