About searching for packages

You can search for packages globally across all of GitHub, or search for packages within a particular organization. For more information, see "About searching on GitHub."


  • For a list of search syntaxes that you can add to any search qualifier to further improve your results, see "Understanding the search syntax".
  • Use quotations around multi-word search terms. For example, if you want to search for issues with the label "In progress," you'd search for label:"in progress". Search is not case sensitive.

Searching within a user's or organization's packages

To find packages owned by a certain user or organization, use the user or org qualifier.

Qualifier Example
user:USERNAME user:codertocat matches packages owned by @codertocat
org:ORGNAME org:github matches packages owned by the GitHub organization

Filtering by package visibility

To filter your search by whether a package is public or private, use the is qualifier.

Qualifier Example
is:public is:public angular matches public packages that contain the word "angular"
is:private is:private php matches private packages that contain the word "php"
