Do more with project dependents

I think the (relatively) new dependency graph is a cool way to find projects. More specifically, lets say I want to use library a. I would like to be able to look at the dependents of library a to get an idea for how others have used it in a production-ish project.

Technically, this is possible right now, but it’s not as effecient as I would like. Generally I’d like to see high-star repositories first, but the dependents page doesn’t have any sorting that I can see. I’d also like to sort by last updated time. It doesn’t appear to be possible to apply any sorting, or even fetch dependents, using the public API.

What do you guys think?
