Krugle The Google For Programming Code

 3:46 pm on Feb 15, 2006 (gmt 0)

InfoWorld story [ww6.infoworld.com]

The first, Krugle , demonstrated a search engine that finds code for reuse. Its unofficial tagline is "the Google (Profile, Products, Articles) for programming code." The benefit of Krugle's search engine is obvious to any developer who has looked to the open source community to find some nifty utility, rather than starting from scratch.

Cool! I am looking for a search engine which actually searches HTML-Code.

Maybe this will help ease my CSS formatting sufferings. :)

I wonder what percentage of the search results will have WW pages in them. Tee hee!

this message paid for by krugle.com and the letters l and a and m and e. Cool idea, but wow, what a bad "launch".

One has to scroll till he ses the posts.

My open source buddies use Koders.com - has been around for quite sometime now apparently.

vibgyor79, great SE, thanks for the link! I hadn't heard of this one. I don't know if 250mill is a lot of lines of code, but the few test phrases I plugged in came back with results I'd expect to find, so ++.

vibgyor79, great SE, [koders.com...] .225,816,744 lines of code with the option of different languages does make it a very special one.

For most people, open source is a synonym for free software. But for programmers, open source is about sharing code, building on the work of others and not having to reinvent the wheel -- at least, that's the ideal. In practice, code reuse remains very low, because it's often too hard for programmers to find relevant bits of code for their applications.

Interesting concept,however not something unique,would be interesting to compare with other engines once they are up
