Somewhere along the line, Krugle moved from a private beta to being “available out there!” It’s a neat idea that I’ve long hoped for – a search engine focused on finding code.
I keep hoping that the top result for “django” will be something in the django subversion respository, but they do at least point to the project under their “Tech Pages” tab. Their relevance mechanism seems a bit skewed towards java, but that can’t be too surprising since there’s probably more java code out there than python.
They have a nice interface that they clearly have put a LOT of work into. Tab based, very slick, and works nicely under Safari (sometimes that is no mean trick!) And of course its cool that their using Lucene and Nutch under the covers to make their stuff work.
