Quick stats about the number of downloads of MVVM Light:
- 143’586 full installation (http://mvvmlight.codeplex.com)
- 85’247 full version on Nuget (https://www.nuget.org/packages/MvvmLight/)
- 69’415 libraries only on Nuget (https://www.nuget.org/packages/MvvmLightLibs/)
- 8’043 portable class libraries on Nuget (https://www.nuget.org/packages/Portable.MvvmLightLibs/)
- TOTAL: 306’291 downloads
I would have thought that the proportion of PCL downloads was much higher based on the Twitter chatter but I guess that it only means that these users are more actively engaged in the community. Same thing with the users of the “libraries only” version, which is less than half of the “full version” (which includes templates and code snippets), and also less than the “Nuget full version” (which adds a MainViewModel, a ViewModelLocator and wires them to your existing app).
On the other hand, the total number of downloads through Nuget is now more than the downloads on Codeplex, which is cool.
