On VersionEye every software library has his own page where we show some important numbers related to that software library.
For example on the right side you can see the numbers for the current version of the Ruby gem twitter-oauth. As you can see version 0.4.94 of twitter-oauth was released 6 months ago and the average time between releases for that package is 81 days.
The references number shows how many other software libraries are referencing / using the current library. As you can see there are 20 other libraries that use twitter-oauth. Up until now VersionEye didn’t show you more than that, but now this number is a link!
When you click on the references number you’ll see which packages use twitter-oauth.
This is one of our newest features and it works with every software library on VersionEye we have dependency information for.
Please try it for yourself and let us know what you think!
