Navigate, explore, and understand the code you are looking for, even if you didn’t know it existed.
Just type your query into Sourcegraph, and it'll find matches. It supports regular expressions, punctuation, exact matches, and much more. Use the visual query builder to narrow down your search and get familiar with search syntax for next time.
Find what you're looking for in a few hundred milliseconds, even across 10,000s of repositories or in a massive 40 GB monorepo. We're maniacal about making Sourcegraph fast. You can also quickly refine your search using suggested filters to narrow down results by repository, language, directory, or custom scopes.
Find the definition or callers of functions and anything else in code, even across package, dependency, and repository boundaries. Even if your IDE can do this, Sourcegraph lets you explore code intelligently in your web browser in any repository on any branch, instantly and without losing your local context. Works for 32 programming languages.
Look through diffs and commit messages to see recent changes related to a specific function or error message. DevOps teams and SREs find this especially useful when responding to incidents, to find out what code changes might be responsible and who to loop in.
Other code search tools limit you to searching a single branch and often have stale results from hours ago. With Sourcegraph's hybrid search (combining indexed and on-the-fly), you can search any branch and any commit. The code is always up to date, and you never need to wait for indexing.
For our new developers, Sourcegraph has been invaluable to get to know the repository structure, to track down where code lives, and self-service during their investigations.
Software engineering is more about reading code than writing it, and part of this process is finding the code that you should read.
