Is there any source where I can understand the workmen issue in detail?
Thanks to Dennis and @rowlandm, found this really helpful: biojs/organisation#3
But it doesn't say much about the workmen issue so I still need some more details before I can think on it.

Okay, so I looked upon some latest packages to make our task easier.
Some relevant stuff I found:
  1. https://www.npmjs.com/package/npm-keyword
    This is a package to list all the npm packages with a certain keyword.
  2. https://www.npmjs.com/package/api-npm
    This module will do query NPM registry to fetch any NPM module details including statistics.
  3. https://github.com/sindresorhus/package-json
    Retrieves the whole package.json file of the package.

I think these packages would be quite useful to display stuff other than the visualizations. They're fast and reliable. What are you thoughts on this?

sounds fine to me. Wee might find issues down the track but that would just be an implementation problem

As Dennis said, the current workman is currently in progress. So the workman can actually use some of those packages.
