Search Engine For Coders to Launch

Zonk posted more than 8 years ago | from the sounds-codetacular dept.

Google 149

karvind writes "According to Wired, 'Krugle' is set to next month. The search engine indexes programming code and documentation from open-source repositories like SourceForge, and includes corporate sites for programmers like the Sun Developer Network. The index will contain between 3 and 5 terabytes of code by the time the engine launches in March. According to article, Krugle also contains intelligence to help it parse code and to differentiate programming languages, so a PHP developer could search for a website-registration system written in PHP simply by typing 'PHP registration system.'" Update: 02/17 21:04 GMT by Z : Summary edited for accuracy.

Koders.com is good. I enjoy writing code for dead systems, so I still use Google and many scattered websites in order to find code and documentation. Krugle will be for modern open-source projects.

Community? (4, Interesting)

binaryDigit (557647) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745107)

Some other interesting features above and beyond simple searching could be:

- merge with semantic web work to be able to search on higher level concepts (e.g. if I type "bubble sort" it returns all bubble sorting code even if it doesn't explicitly say "bubble sort" anywhere).

- "community" features that allow developers to leave comments on code (no, not comments _in_ code, but on code, similar to epinions et al).

- if this index is available via api like the main google index, then people could do things like have automated lint type tools.

- code chain. If I search for some code, then it'd be nice to be able to then peruse that codes hierarchy within the search engine (vs having to download it or cvs over to it).

And after that, you could search for "given the initial input, code that terminates"! That would be awesome [wikipedia.org] .

Re:Community? (1)

babbling (952366) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745720)

The only way I see this being useful is if it searches comments/code descriptions.

Imagine searching for "if( x == 5 )". It would be useless to search code. Searching comments and returning code as a results would probably be better, since something like "bubble sort" would then have a chance of bringing up what you want.

Also seems like it's a program, not a website. Not sure whether that's good or bad. I could go either way, I suppose.

Rock! (2, Insightful)

AKAImBatman (238306) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745115)

This could so seriously rock. Every time I need a library to do a specific function, I always have to do some searching to find all of the competing options. Invariably, at least a couple of options get missed as you sort through the excess nonsense and out of date information. (Sometimes it's the best solution that gets missed.) I can't count how many times I've wished there was a simpler way to get all the competing options.

And then there's the issue of missing modules that are referenced by other code. Usually you have to find them by trial and error. In a code search engine, (theoretically) it will simply come back with all instances of the constant I put in. Which means that I can locate the missing module faster than ever before!

If this works, Google will have seriously made the lives of thousands of programmers that much easier. :-)

Google doing a lot, too much? (1)

Serveert (102805) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745141)

So they get into another niche. This is troubling, let me explain.

Let's say I have a website that allows for searching of source code and I display google ads. Google looks at the traffic and revenue then decides to compete with me using their own service. So the question is, why do people display google ads? The money's good now but google could very well get into your business and wipe you out if it does too well and they notice.

IMO, they should either do advertising and stick with that and nothing else, or get into providing content while not having an affilaite network. Only fools advertise with google IMO. The money might be good now but be wary if you do too well.

Re:Google doing a lot, too much? (1)

Serveert (102805) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745175)

given the revision of this thread topic things are a bit different but the reasoning stays the same, google could still enter this space if you give them your ad traffic and they deem it profitable enough to compete with you, puting links to their competitor before your search results.

Re:Google doing a lot, too much? (1)

tomservo291 (863856) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745285)

Re:Google doing a lot, too much? (1)

but when you're giving them your traffic patterns/sales/etc via analytics then providing them with your effective CPM/CPC and of course impressions and clicks via adsense, then they have a better idea vs if you just didn't go through them.

Re:Google doing a lot, too much? (1)

Penguinoflight (517245) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745641)

A anti-libertarian who is paranoid? say it isn't so! Google's messing with advertising makes them look bad, but think about their other options. If Google went straight to advertising only, everyone would just assume they were as bad as doubleclick. I cant think of one advertiser that is legitamite, and at least when google puts adds off their own site it doesn't seem to cloud things.

Google only makes money by advertising at the moment, and they cant hardly give it up. They certianly cannot go to all advertising, everyone would just blacklist their networks.

Which is unfortunate since I need a snippet to make my fielded read loop ignore comments and I'm lazy.


Perhaps a
read -d \#
might work? (essentially, read until you encounter a hash character)

Re:Limited languages at present (1)

Medievalist (16032) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745729)

Well, I did this, which solves the problem, but is not particularly elegant in my opinion:

ReadFields () {
    local IFS=:
    Host="#"
    while [ `expr substr $Host 1 1` = "#" ]
      do
          read Host Key Interval Excludes Keep
    done
}

while ReadFields
    do

    (stuff gets done to each host)

done $ConfigFile

This method restricts commenting to lines with a first character of "#" and it reads a series of fields separated by colon characters (something like /etc/passwd or /etc/printcap format). The use of a function and a local variable prevents IFS getting polluted within the main while loop. I don't like it but it works in practice.

http://www.codefetch.com/ [codefetch.com] does let you search for bash scripts. Choose "Unix / Shell" from the main page.

Codefetch lets you know how much material it can search for a language and you can see by the single dot that it doesn't have a lot for bash but it still should have enough to help you.

Medievalist (16032) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745817)

Thanks, that's a cool site!

The examples it pulled up for me all used sed, though, and I've already got a somewhat lame method [slashdot.org] that doesn't require anything but bash.

I always try to minimise my use of external calls, regardless of language, in order to keep my code as portable as possible. Obviously there are limits, I use Graham Barr's LDAP perl modules rather than try to write my own LDAP routines for every perl hack I might need! But for this job I'd rather not call sed, gawk, grep, and friends unless it's really absolutely necessary.

I've bookmarked codefetch [codefetch.com] for future reference. Thanks again!

Sponsored by SCO (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 8 years ago | (#14745145)

Don't use it! Its sponsored by SCO. An insider at Krugle leaked that SCO was sponsoring it to get people to post their software so SCO could find more copyright violations. Everyone knows that the Linux kernel contains lots of SCO code and this will help them find even more. SCO has an extensive library of tools to look for copyright violations (most of them run on Microsoft). They got them from their MIT consultant in 2003.

rakerman (409507) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745149)

The Wired article title "Here Comes a Google for Coders" maybe caused the confusion. I guess the use of "a google" to mean "a search engine" was maybe a confusing choice.

What I'd like.. Google with regex (2, Insightful)

matt me (850665) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745212)

What I've always wanted is to use Google properly, with full regex functionality, see Perl. Currently Google gives you ten terms (I call them words), allowing you to quote some, and use a single-level of AND and OR. And excludes, but these eat away at the ten word limit speedily.

I want wildcards .* and to be able to escape punctuation! It may look like a cartoon character swearing, but for those that can, it would give us way more power.

Re:What I'd like.. Google with regex (1)

cosmo99 (157757) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745632)

http://www.codefetch.com/ [codefetch.com] offers a limited regular expression search as one of its main features. And it can do a true full-text search: You *can* search for "#!" for instance.

Its not Google, but it does search a lot of good code from published books.

That's not always reliable, I've submitted actual google stories, and had them rejected, admittedly one was posted by somone else within an hour, but the other one was for real, and a similar topic was posted months later. so it depends on the editor.

That said if Krugle doesn't have the ability to filter on a per license basis, it will not be practical (or safe) for many.

cosmo99 (157757) | more than 8 years ago | (#14745709)

http://www.codefetch.com/ [codefetch.com] is a search engine that searches a very useful collection of code: the source code from programming books.

Neither koders nor krugle cover that, plus codefetch searches the APIs of several languages, java, ruby, php, for example.

Finally, unlike koders, codefetch lets you do a true full-text search, just like in a text editor-- go ahead, search for "+=" and you can even use a few regular expressions.

Re:www.codefetch.com is another resource (1)
