Google speeds up code search for better and quicker development

Google said that the Cloud Source Repositories are powered by the same underlying code search infrastructure that Google engineers use to perform their code search. According to a study, the programmers conduct an average of five search sessions with 12 total queries each day. The motive of code search is to find the location of code, why it is behaving a certain way, who edited the code and when was it done, and how to perform a task.

“Using this code search can improve developer productivity, whether you host your code in Cloud Source Repositories or mirror your code from the cloud versions of GitHub or Bitbucket.”

When any code is typed in the search box, the suggestions will appear for matching results. Google said that the developers will see suggestions indicating whether the match is an entity if the search term is for Java, JavaScript, Go, C++, Python, TypeScript and Proto files.
