I’d love the ability to filter search results so that über-old packages aren’t displayed.
I’ve had a lot of bad luck searching for packages with very relevant descriptions, but which don’t work because they are outdated. Relying on outdated versions of Node.js itself and outdated versions of other popular npm packages are both a problem.
npm search [terms] --last-updated=YYYY-MM-DD
npm search [terms] --last-updated=#y[#m[#d]]
@Zearin you can kind of do this by including 2013 or 2014 in your search terms.
@timoxley Well, yes. I know. :) But that’s a workaround. I’m request a feature.

Because we're not going to get to this in the next year, I'm closing this feature request. Thanks for your time!
