If you are interested in filing an issue about npm's public registry API, please file over at the npm/registry repo. You can also find documentation over there!
npm's public APIs are haphazard, old-fashioned, and scattered. We can and will do better. An internal API was created to handle the needs of www, but needs some work before it can be publicly released. In particular, the existence of private packages means that
- we can't just expose all the data
- we have to provide an authentication mechanism, so you can see your data
This is very doable, and we intend to do it, but we don't have a timeline yet. In the meantime, this repo is for collecting feature requests and tracking work on this in future. Check out the issues.
