I have noticed that the
downloads count for a node that I published a few months ago has consistently shown 0 on the nodes page for my package though the count shown on the npm page has almost always been non-zero.
I just wondered where this number comes from.
Should the count on the page for the package in the nodes library match the npm page for the package?
Does the count on the page for the package in the Node-RED nodes library only show downloads that were done through the NodeRED Manage palette process?
I noticed that some recently published nodes are including instructions to install using the Manage palette process. I wondered if this is necessary to get the download count to be accurate.
