Update https://atom.io/packages Listings + API To Leverage Node Package.json Keywords In Search


#1

It would be nice if the package searching that is available on the website and within the editor allowed searching on keywords included in package.json https://www.npmjs.org/doc/json.html#keywords.

For example: https://github.com/joefitzgerald/go-plus/blob/master/package.json#L4-L14

This assists package authors in making their packages discoverable and package users in finding the right packages.

Additionally, it would also be helpful to sort the listing that comes back from a search using some measure other than alphabetical order (perhaps by download count?).

@ProbablyCorey any thoughts on this?

I like this idea, I added it to our internal issue tracker.
