Betreff: [Wikitech-l] Announcing MediaWiki code search
MediaWiki code search is a fully free software tool that lets you
easily search through all of MediaWiki core, extensions, and skins
that are hosted on Gerrit. You can limit your search to specific
repositories, or types of repositories too. Regular expressions are
supported in both the search string, and when filtering by path.
Try it out: https://codesearch.wmflabs.org/search/
I started working on this because the only other options to searching
the entire MediaWiki codebase was either cloning everything locally
(takes up space, and need to manually keep it up to date) or using
Github (not free software, has extraneous repositories). The backend
is powered by hound, a code search tool written by etsy, based on
Google's Code Search.
Please let me know what you think! More documentation and links are
