RunKit +

Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including npm-search with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

npm-search lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

// require("npm-search/[??]")

npm-search v0.0.1


An index of npm using levelup.


#download all the json in npm (~350 mb in feb 2013)

#initialize db
node index.js

node search.js physic~ vox~
{ 'voxel-control': [ [ 'PHYSICAL', 3 ], [ 'VOXEL', 5 ] ],
  'voxel-physical': [ [ 'PHYSICAL', 1 ], [ 'VOXEL', 1 ] ],
  'player-physics': [ [ 'PHYSICS', 6 ], [ 'VOXEL', 2 ], [ 'VOXELJS', 2 ] ],
  'voxel-player': [ [ 'PHYSICS', 2 ], [ 'VOXEL', 9 ], [ 'VOXELPLAYER', 2 ] ] }

Queries like that will take 200ms to 1000ms, most of this time is spent opening the database.

If you want it to go really fast, open a server, and then request to it.

node search.js --port 9876 &

# search terms seperated by /
curl localhost:9876/search/terms

If you end a search term with ~ then it will return everthing that matches that prefix.

node search.js stream~ err~


This is currently just a bunch of scripts. Will polish this to make it a propper tool.
