Libscore's founder, Julian Shapiro, created the project in 2014 while he was on a web development grant awarded by Stripe, a major payments processing company. While developing Libscore, he brokered a partnership with DigitalOcean to participate as the project's second and final sponsor. Stripe provides legal resources and covers the cost of Libscore's development, while DigitalOcean lends its technical resources to perform the monthly crawling.
In June 2015, Libscore 2.0 was released, which introduced the ability to compare the popularity of libraries over time. It also provided comparative graphing, for comparing library growth trends against one another, and auto-suggest to make library searching easier.
As of October 2020, the Libscore website is unavailable.

Libscore also provides monthly statistics on the top libraries, scripts, and sites, in addition to regularly publishing charts showcasing library adoption percentages.
There is also a Libscore API that provides developers programmatic access to Libscore's monthly data.
