The problem


Source: modulecounts.com

104k modules to choose from

Why is that a problem?


Significant overlap


Many sub-optimal packages


Which modules are the good ones?


How do we compare with other languages?

Towards a Quality Metric


Downloads per day


GitHub stars / forks


Number of versions


Open issues vs closed issues


No need to peek inside the code!

Package quality


A proof of concept


Browse packages in npmjs.org

and then look for the GitHub project


Can be extended to other repos


Help me on GitHub

Thanks!
