How does libraries.io work?
Libraries pulls in data using their JSON apis, it uses two end points, one to get the names of all available packages, and one to get the meta data (things like description, homepage, keywords, dependencies, versions etc.). The initial import pulls data for everything, and then where available, an RSS feed is used to get the names of new or updated packages every 10 minutes, otherwise a reload of all the packages is undertaken every hour or day depending on the number of packages in each project.
