Right now, components are listed in a relatively random order (perhaps most recently added or edited?), and when a search term is entered it appears to be sorted by relevance, but that may not be the most appropriate sort order.
I'd recommend the default sort be popularity, based on number of downloads initially then powered more by cognitive network. There will be lots of components that people contribute that just aren't as widely used and may be limited in documentation, so we want to de-emphasize those.
Recommend adding a sort by option that includes:
4. Date Created
5. Date Modified
Ultimately there would be a filter and sort for pricing as well.
You make some great points. We'll point the development team to this as we look to advance our features.
