Get library data

Hey I am writing a platformIO wrapper for neovim.
I wanted to ask is there a way to get data for all the library available in josn format like you get data for all available board by using the command pio pkg --json-output

You mean you want to retrieve all existing libraries in the PlatformIO registry ( Which are like… a lot?

Or the ones installed in the project?

Yeah I wanted to retrieve all existing libraries, but now it sounds stupid. Do you know how to get the data in json by giving a search query, like I want output of this pio pkg search in json

See core code.
