Viewing packages

You can see details about packages published to a repository, and narrow results by organization or user.

Anyone with read permissions to a repository can view the repository's packages.

GitHub Packages is available with GitHub Free, GitHub Pro, GitHub Free for organizations, GitHub Team, GitHub Enterprise Cloud, GitHub Enterprise Server 2.22, and GitHub One.


GitHub Packages is not available for private repositories owned by accounts using legacy per-repository plans. Also, accounts using legacy per-repository plans cannot access GitHub Container Registry since these accounts are billed by repository. For more information, see "GitHub's products."

About package views

Packages must be installed at the repository level, but you can view all packages in an organization and all packages you've published. On the package page, GitHub provides metadata for each version, such as the publication date. You can see details about the package, including a description and installation and usage instructions. You can download any assets associated with the package and see information about download activity. For an example package page, see @Codertocat/hello-world-npm.
