If you're a Composer user by now you've noticed a major overhaul that's happened to the Packagist.org website in the last few days. They've made a major improvement to how the site looks and have added some fun new functionality to help make finding packages easier.According to the Laravel News site, updates include a change in the recommended install method, the addition of more GitHub metadata and the inclusion of the project's README file. The site will also allow you to sort (ascending and descending) by the number of stars the repository has as well as the number of downloads.
The site still includes all of the information it dod before too including version listings, details about what the package requires, license information and links to more information and the actual repository. Check out the new look and see what you think. Packagist is also an Open Source project so if you find an issue, be sure to either report it to the project or get in, fix it yourself and make the pull request to submit it.
