Apache why???

Your projects' page let's me view all the projects sorted by category, language, etc.

https://projects.apache.org/project...

But I can't view a description... I have to open the link...

Starts writing a scraper and realizes the project list is not static, it's loaded from a JSON document using JS... The document has all the descriptions and other info...

WHY THE FUCK DO YOU NOT SHOW THIS ON THE PAGE BUT MAKE EVERYONE OPEN ANOTHER PAGE SEE THEM...

Spends an hour writing an app in C# to parse the json because a simple Flattener isn't good enough because of the structure...

Probably going to end up creating a GUI so I can browse it more easily and Star the ones I may be interested in...

    @C0D4 if not, I'd need to open like 300 tabs?

    The key issue though is if they send the data anyway, why not show it like with a mouseover... They generate charts and graphs of stats but miss something so simple...

    And actually I have most of the logic, just need a View.

    DAO:
    -fetch
    -loadFromFile
    -save
