About the dependents graph

The dependents graph contains data on both packages and applications. Packages are repositories that contain a library in a package manager, whereas applications are repositories that depend on the selected repository. The list of applications in the dependents graph is sorted by the most recent project that depends on the repository.

The dependents graph contains data for these languages:

  • RubyGems
  • NPM
  • PyPI
  • Maven (pom.xml only)
  • Nuget

Note: The dependent counts are approximate and may not match the dependents listed.
