As well as the website, there is also an IPSW Downloads API, which is used by the website and other developers in their projects - most notably iFaith and sn0wbreeze (popular jailbreaking tools).

There are many projects that contribute to the IPSW downloads pages, the open source ones can be found on the Just a Penguin GitHub.
