Hibernating Rhinos 6 - Code Search Engine

time to read 2 min | 210 words

image This is a screen cast that was spawned as a result of the discussion in the ALT.Net about the ideal IDE. Glenn Block mentioned that something that would be cool is:

Ability to instantly search for a specific artifact (kind of like Google / windows live search). As I type it in, I see the filtered results.

I like challenges, and I happened to know some components that can make this very easy, so I set out to build the foundations of a code search engine that can match the above requirements. Now, refining it to the point where it is usable should take about a day or two, I think, but all the basics are there.

  • Length: 28:07:00
  • Download size: 40Mb
  • Code starts at: 1 minute mark

This is basically glue code, so be aware of it. It meant to show you how, not to actually show production level code to handle all the required scenarios.

You can download the screen cast here. As usual, the sound quality is probably suspect, and I recorded it at 2AM, so I am not sounding my best there.
