It would be nice to have a rating based on number of downloads last month.
Or a front page "most downloaded" category...
I agree with @ubershmekel this should be closed, the front page basically provides this.
The categories I see on the frontpage are "Recently Updated", "Most Depended Upon", "Most Starred", "Most Prolific Recently". But not "Most downloaded today" e.g.
@ubershmekel Ah, you're right - I misread your original comment. This would be a good PR.
Thanks for filing this, but the npm-www repository is being retired. If this issue also applies to the new npm website, please search for it at https://github.com/npm/newww/issues. If you don't see the issue there, please open a new one.
