Krugle helps you find the code you need and the related technical and licensing information to evaluate and use that code. And once you’ve found what you need, Krugle lets you save it and share it. The process of searching, evaluating and communicating are dramatically faster with Krugle.
Krugle was designed by programmers, for programmers. As a result, it is much more than just a search engine for code. It’s a powerful tool designed to provide the critical information software developers need.
Unlike conventional search engines, Krugle is designed to locate code. Krugle supports code search by crawling, parsing and indexing code found in all open source repositories, as well as code that exists in archives, mailing lists, blogs, and web pages. And Krugle makes navigating code repositories easy. Start with a single source file and then view its relationship to another file, to understand its use and dependencies. This ability to interactively browse and explore code in a meaningful context provides a more informed view and reduces the time required to make good code decisions.
Krugle also provides answers to code-related technical questions, enabling real-time comprehension by presenting contextual information quickly and efficiently: related code, dependencies, licensing information, compatibility requirements, bug reports and news group postings. Krugle’s intelligent crawlers evaluate and search sites that are technically relevant. This results in an optimized search engine for developers.
As you proceed through a search session, Krugle creates tabbed “pages” for each result viewed, whether code, web pages or other documents. This makes flipping back and forth between code and related information easy.
Krugle also lets you add your own comments to entire code files or specific lines of code, allowing for useful code-centric communication between developers.
In addition to its search and communication functions, Krugle is a perfect first source of information for anyone new to a particular language, tool, standard, or programming concept. Krugle’s Rich Search provides information on thousands of technical topics and APIs, including definitions, top links for sample code, documentation, and links to organizations and community oriented sites involved in the topic, such as standards bodies.
