MediaWiki code search is een geheel gratis software tool waarmee je gemakkelijk door alles kan zoeken van MediaWiki core, extensies, en skins die gehosted worden op Gerrit. U kunt het zoeken beperken tot specifiek repositories maar ook types van repositories. Reguliere expressies worden ondersteund bij zowel de zoek string en bij het het filteren op path.



Codesearch uses Hound as the search implementation. It indexes the origin/master branch of all specified repositories, and updates them every 90 minutes, and adds new repositories every 24 hours. Each search profile is backed by a different instance of hound. A small Python Flask server acts as the proxy for the web frontend, backed by gunicorn, to the individual hound instances.
