2021 has been quite a busy year for Conan. We are working hard to get Conan 2.0 ready, almost 4 years after 1.0 was released. And, of course, the 1.X series is still very active, with 10 versions released during the year.

Conan Center has not lagged behind. In 2021, only two years after its inception, we celebrated with our community a great milestone: in August, Conan Center reached 1,000 recipes.

So Conan and Conan Center have come a long way over the last few years. Let’s take a look at some numbers to see how much we have grown.

So Conan is the most used, but how much? There are a lot of ways to install Conan, and we don’t have data on installs coming from mirrors. The most popular source, though, is PyPI, the Python package index. In there, we are currently having around 500.000 monthly downloads. Almost 520.000 in December.

The PyPI installs number must be taken just as an estimation. Their stats are kind of noisy because of mirrors and other reasons.
