Registry of 3rd party libraries / packages / modules
Most of the major programming languages have lots of open source extensions. Many of the development frameworks also have packages. Even some of the editors and IDEs have such extensions.
These extensions are sometimes referred to as modules or libraries or packages.
Sometime they get a different name.
Module counts show the list of all the module/package/library systems and the number of items in them.
Here I tried to replicate and extend that list.
- Closure Clojars
- Crystal CrystalShards and Shardbox
- C# .NET NuGet the package manager for .NET.
- D lang DUB the D package registry

C++ seems to be a category of itself

The C++ language does not come with an integrated package manager to deal with external dependencies of a project. However, there exists various third party package managers for C++ with their package repositories:
- Conan with ConanCenter with 867 packages
- build2 with cppget with 83 packages
- Meson with Wrap DB with 163 packages (recipes)
- vcpkg from Microsoft with vcpkg with 1656 packages
