Geminispace Statistics Visualized

Last updated: Thu 26 May 2022 01:00:10 AM UTC

With Stéphane Bortzmeyer's kind permission, I wrote a script to download and parse his statistics page daily and generate charts from the data.

Statistics on the Gemini space

My script first downloads and parses the gemtext of the statistics page and then saves the data to a SQLite database. Charts are generated from the data stored here. This database has been seeded with data from Stéphane's archive which keeps the statistics for the first day of every month. You can download it here and use it for your own projects:
