It’s Your Content, Claim The Logs For It

Improved statistics we introduced last month give you much more information about the users that download open source software you publish than any other binaries distribution platform ever.

But why stop there? What if you want even more? One of the most powerful ways to slice and dice your download stats is to play with Apache-style logs. This standard, known as Common Log Format, is well familiar and there are tons of utilities for parsing, analyzing and generally going wild with these logs.

If you you’re an open source developer distributing your packages on Bintray, you may have wished for the logs. You may have also thought that since Bintray is SaaS and the platform’s logs are part of how the backend works, then you’ll need to settle with what we give you in the UI.

Well, wrong! The good news are – we give you all your logs, in standard Apache format, and it’s up to you how to get them – by a REST call or from the UI:

If your package is included in JCenter, you can go a head and download your log files today. Other repositories will get their logs soon.
