This morning my favorite code search engine, Krugle, has made two big announcements:
- The launch of their second generation Code Search Appliance that can access SCM systems. If you can get your hands on one of these then you don’t have to rely on a hacked together app that searches code or worse yet, just dumping everything locally and using something like Google desktop search. Code reuse is an important part of writing programs efficiently, but it only works when you can quickly find the code you need to reuse, Krugle can make that happen.
- The second announcement is it’s OpenAPI for partners. I believe this will be good news for programmers who work with the large Dev networks that Krugle supports (IBM developerWorks, CollabNet, SourceForge.net, Yahoo! Developer Network, etc.) , and should allow for easier to use and better integrated tools.
