Searching for packages

You can search for packages on GitHub and narrow the results using search qualifiers.

Anyone can search for packages they have access to.

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 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."

Tips:

  • 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.

QualifierExample
user:USERNAMEuser:codertocat matches packages owned by @codertocat
org:ORGNAMEorg: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.

QualifierExample
is:publicis:public angular matches public packages that contain the word "angular"
is:privateis:private php matches private packages that contain the word "php"
