    Quite a lot, actually! It's definitely not ready for prime-time usage or anything, but:

    * There are some Docker commands you can use to try it out on some Go code right now[0] (still working on getting binary releases for each OS so Docker is not necessary)

    * There's a not-too-bad frontend (written in Elm), screenshots in the README are real & it all functions!

    * There's an indexer implemented for the Go language[1] that runs tree-sitter queries & emits a basic schema[2], the idea is each language would emit to a common schema like this and then the frontend can serve it, we can index it for search, etc.

    So, I mean, yeah - just a week into it, but like - you can already view documentation for Go functions in it so moving quickly!

    Whoa, hey everyone! Wasn't expecting to see this on HN! I've literally only done a week of work on this, so it's super early stages. Here are our plans for it:

    * 100% OSS tool, run locally on your machine (static Go binary) or use https://doctree.dev (plug in a repository name, get docs) - really want this to be a proper, useful FOSS tool.

    * The online version doesn't exist yet, we do own the domain :)

    * Will work with any language, based on tree-sitter.

    * Will provide symbol-level search functionality.

    * We're thinking we can leverage Sourcegraph's open source code index to do statistical analysis of how functions are commonly called (what parameters look like most often), similar to https://codestat.dev, so that we can surface real-world usage examples automatically.

    Tech details (again, just a week in):

    * Go for backend, Elm for frontend

    * Indexers will be written in Go, use tree-sitter queries to produce a standard index schema which then gets served to Elm frontend for rendering. https://github.com/sourcegraph/doctree/blob/main/doctree/sch...

    Probably so early stages it's not worth trying out right now, but if you're interested in it we set up a Discord server for collaboration, etc.

    Happy to answer any questions!
