Navigator Data Sources
Cloudsmith Navigator gathers data from top sources such as libraries.io, GitHub, npm, RubyGems, PyPI, and Maven. These sources provide a wealth of information on packages, including version history, dependencies, maintainers, and more. By combining these sources, we offer developers a one-stop solution to discover, analyze, and track open-source packages efficiently.
Libraries.io is a critical component of our platform, serving as a vital resource for discovering popular open-source packages and accessing fundamental base data. We rely on their extensive repository to maintain up-to-date awareness of prevailing trends within the open-source community. It is important to note that the data provided by Libraries.io is released under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 license, thereby necessitating responsible utilization and adherence to the requirements of this specific licensing framework. Consequently, we ensure due attribution and compliance with all stipulated terms and conditions. This collaborative association empowers developers with dependable insights while fostering an environment of cooperation within the open-source ecosystem.
We rely on Security Scorecardsto obtain foundational information about the quality and health of packages. By utilizing the capabilities of Security Scorecardswe can directly assess package security from their respective repositories. This comprehensive approach enables us to gauge security posture, identify vulnerabilities, and evaluate overall package health accurately. Integrating Security Scorecards into our system ensures developers have access to reliable and up-to-date security insights, enabling informed decisions and prioritizing secure, high-quality packages for their projects.

To obtain more detailed insights into packages, including download data, we integrate with NPM. Through this integration, we leverage the NPM registry to access comprehensive information about packages hosted on the platform. This includes download statistics, version history, dependencies, and other relevant details. By querying NPM, we enhance our tool’s capabilities, providing developers with a deeper understanding of package popularity, usage trends, and overall package health. This valuable data empowers developers to make informed decisions, select optimal packages, and optimize their project development.
As part of our effort to provide comprehensive package insights, we integrate RubyGems to obtain additional information on RubyGems packages. Through this integration, we gain access to valuable details about RubyGems packages hosted on their registry. By leveraging RubyGems, we acquire essential data, including version history, dependencies, maintainers, and other pertinent metadata. This enables developers to make well-informed decisions, understand package dependencies, and ensure compatibility within their Ruby projects. Our RubyGems integration enhances the tool’s capabilities, offering developers a streamlined experience to discover, assess, and utilize high-quality RubyGems packages for their projects.
In order to access and analyze download statistics for RubyGems packages, we integrate with BestGems (https://bestgems.org/). Through this integration, we leverage BestGems’ data to obtain download metrics, giving us insights into the popularity and usage trends of RubyGem packages. By utilizing BestGems, we empower developers with crucial information, enabling them to make informed decisions regarding the selection of packages for their Ruby projects. The integration with BestGems enhances our tool’s capabilities, providing developers with valuable data to optimize their package choices and improve project development efficiency.
To enrich our platform’s insights into Python packages, we seamlessly integrate with the PyPI API. This integration grants us access to valuable additional information related to Python packages hosted on the PyPI repository. By leveraging the PyPI API, we retrieve essential details such as version history, dependencies, maintainers, and other pertinent metadata. This empowers developers to make well-informed decisions, understand package interdependencies, and ensure compatibility within their Python projects. Our PyPI API integration enhances the tool’s capabilities, offering developers a streamlined experience to discover, evaluate, and utilize high-quality Python packages effectively.
In our efforts to provide comprehensive insights into Python packages, we seamlessly integrate with PyPI Stats. This integration allows us to access and analyze download data for Python packages hosted on PyPI. By leveraging PyPI Stats, we obtain valuable metrics on package popularity and usage trends, empowering developers with crucial information to make informed decisions about their package choices. This data-driven approach enhances the tool’s capabilities, enabling developers to optimize their Python projects by selecting high-demand and widely-used packages. The integration with PyPI Stats enhances the overall development experience, fostering efficient and well-informed package selection for developers.
