The RebelLabs '17 report ranks Apache Groovy 3rd in language popularity, right behind Java 7 and Java 8:
And I wanted to share some recent download stats, combining downloads from Maven Central and Bintray.
For the first 8 months of 2017, Groovy was downloaded more than 30 million times!
Compare this with the 23.4M for the whole of 2018!
Groovy was downloaded more than 4 million times a month those past 4 months.
And in August, we even reached 5M+ downloads!
Not bad, right? :-)
