Searching was improved significantly in #81, but it's still not perfect. If you search for something and it doesn't show up, or not in the order you expect, post it here so I can start to think about what kinds of search queries need to be optimized.

I'll start off:

  • searching for "lua socket" or "socket" does not find "LuaSocket"

@pannous it looks like torch-rnn is only available in the development manifest:

luarocks install --server=http://luarocks.org/dev torch-rnn

Also I don't see a package named stn at all.

Sort by downloads

Search doesn't have pagination and only the first 50 results are shown, I almost missed discovering some useful libaries because of this. Sorting by downloads would be much better too.

@dragon28 this is for luarocks website search, not the command line install, which takes exact package name. I don't see that package on the luarocks manifest at all, what do you expect it to install?

I would like to have a way to search for modules for a particular version of Lua.

@chandraadhikari This issues tracker is for the luarocks website search, not the command line install
