Package Versions Going Down

#1

Hey, I sometimes get “update notifications” in my package.json file for a library I can update. When I do, I always compare the version that I’m updating to the new version. Some times I notice that the version Glitch wants me to update to is smaller than the version I have. Is there something that can be done about this? It’s not a huge error/suggestion, but a tiny detail that bothers me at times.

Hey @EdwardRBLX thanks for letting us know. For this sort of thing we use the libraries.io API to tell us about package versions, so it’s possible that the packages you’re seeing this behavior on have metadata in libraries.io that is out of date.

We don’t have any work planned for this in the immediate future, but I’ll make sure that the rest of the team knows about the issue you’ve seen for future consideration.

Happy Glitching!
