Was just checking on some IDEA plugins today. When browsing repositories, IDEA shows number of times a plugin has been downloaded. Results:
- Intellij-provided Scala plugin: About 140,000 downloads.- Intellij-provided Clojure plugin: About 27,000 downloads.- All Groovy plugins (none from Intellij): < 20,000 downloads.

groovy shows up as a bundled plugin, so i would guess no one would need to install it explicitly

also you need to keep track how often plugins are updated. more updates
= more downloads

For sure! I download the latest build of the IDEA Scala plugin almost every day.

Re: Interesting (though unscientific) Language Metrics

i configured my idea to notify/autodownload the newest nightlies :) but are these included, or do they count only the official releases?
