Example response:

[
  {

    "name": "com/mycompany/my-app",
    "version": "1.0-SNAPSHOT",
    "package_type": "maven",
    "created_at": "2019-11-27T03:37:38.711Z"
  },
  {
    "id": 2,
    "name": "@foo/bar",
    "version": "1.0.3",
    "package_type": "npm",
    "created_at": "2019-11-27T03:37:38.711Z"
  },
  {
    "id": 3,
    "name": "Hello/0.1@mycompany/stable",
    "conan_package_name": "Hello",
    "version": "0.1",
    "package_type": "conan",

    "tags": []
  }
]

By default, the GET request returns 20 results, because the API is paginated.

Although you can filter packages by status, working with packages that have a processing status can result in malformed data or broken packages.
