  • Code Search Is Hard

    The hardest part about getting code search right imo is grabbing the right amount of surrounding context, which septum is aimed at solving on a per-file basis.

    Another one I'm surprised hasn't been mentioned is stack-graphs (https://github.com/github/stack-graphs), which tries to incrementally resolve symbolic relationships across the whole codebase. It powers github's cross-file precise indexing and conceptually makes a lot of sense, though I've struggled to get the open source version to work

    > It doesn't have the faintest idea where the name is defined, or if there's even a difference between a function name, a parameter name, or a word in a comment.

    I don't think what you are saying is actually true for stack-graphs[0][1].

  • Should I be worried or not worried about Tree-sitter now that the Atom editor has been killed?

    I think GitHub still has some use for tree-sitter. In this post it's mentioned that their new code navigation system is based on tree-sitter. In a more recent post they welcome contributers to add special code navigation queries to existing languages. You can find their public repository here if you want to follow along with any developments. Since their code navigation system relies heavily on tree-sitter I don't think it's going anywhere soon (fingers crossed).
  • What happened with GitHub's semantic project?

  • Stack Graphs
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 9 Dec 2021
    As mentioned elsewhere on this thread, stack graphs and Semantic were built by the same team (which I manage). Semantic is not abandoned, we've just been focusing on a different layer of our tech stack for the past year or so. https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=29501389

    That PR on the Semantic repo was our first attempt at implementing these ideas. We decided to reimplement it in a separate library (also open source, https://github.com/github/stack-graphs), which only builds on tree-sitter directly so that there's an easier story for us and language communities to add support for new languages. It's a fair point that we could have closed the Semantic PR to indicate that more clearly.
