PyPI usage statistics, the zc.buildout effect

by Tarek Ziadé

It is interesting to look at the usage statistics at PyPI:

Besides the front page, the most visited pages are in order (same thing in April):

  • zc.buildout
  • setuptools
  • zc.recipe.egg
  • plone.recipe.zope2instance
  • plone.recipe.distros
  • python-openid
  • elementtree
  • plone.recipe.zope2install

Then the packages in the top 60 are mainly zope eggs. This corresponds to the sequence done by a Plone or Zope being build in a buildout.

If you take a closer look at, the  next top hits  corresponds to zope.* then plone.* packages.
