[FIXED] How did I get 111 npm downloads already?

Issue

So 2 days ago I published my first npm package
A simple library to trim and join audio files.
https://www.npmjs.com/package/aviatojs\
The weird thing is I already got 111 downloads somehow.
I havent shared this package with anyone
Neither have I documented anything. The readme is literally blank
.
could this be a mistake??

Solution

Npm’s download stats are native by design: they are simply a count of the number of HTTP 200 responses we served that were tarball files, i.e. packages. This means the number includes:

  • automated build servers
  • downloads by mirrors
  • robots that download every package for analysis
