Where are the docs for the registry front-end API?

I found, but only a couple have been updated less than 2 years ago, and that was in a single commit back in January of last year. I found another,, but it’s a repo labeled “WIP” with its last commit being over 3 years ago.

I was thinking briefly of making an experimental third-party client, but I don’t feel like trying to reverse engineer npm or npm-registry-client to figure that out.

Hi there, thanks for your patience in waiting for a reply. You’re right, these are the most up-to-date registry API docs: It is on our roadmap to revisit all our API documentation and make them more easily findable and user friendly, but unfortunately that hasn’t happened yet.
