SD Times news digest: Public code search tool for AOSP, DataRobot acquires Paxata, and Visual Studio Code 1.41
Google introduced a code search feature with cross references for the Android Open Source Project.
With the new feature, users are able to view the source code, navigate cross references across the entire code base and switch between Android’s open source branches.
The Android repository is made up of a collection of git repositories which are managed together using our ‘repo’ tool. Because of this, most tools (such as github, gitweb, etc) can’t see the source code the way that it’s laid out when it’s checked out on the system. In partnership with our colleagues who run Google’s internal Code Search and Kythe, we’re pleased to present a code search tool that presents a view of all of the Android source code as you actually use it,” the AOSP team wrote in a post.
