About package views

Your ability to view a package depends on several factors. By default, you can view all packages you have published.

Repository-scoped packages inherit their permissions and visibility from the repository that owns the package. The registries below use this type of permissions:

  • Docker registry (docker.pkg.github.com)
  • npm registry
  • RubyGems registry
  • Apache Maven registry
  • NuGet registry

For more information, see "About permissions for GitHub Packages."

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.
