Browse GitHub like an IDE, with the Sourcegraph Chrome extension
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could browse and search code on GitHub as easily as you can in an IDE, with jump-to-definition, doc tooltips, and cross-references? We think so. That’s why we built the Sourcegraph Chrome extension for GitHub .
Install from the Chrome Web Store. For Go and Java only; more languages coming soon!
The Sourcegraph Chrome extension includes two features to keep you in the coding zone:
- Jump-to-definition: When you’re browsing files on GitHub, you can use the extension to click on anything in your code to jump to its definition, or hover over it to get documentation tooltips.
- Semantic code search: Searching for functions, classes, and other code elements — not just text. Click the “Search code” button or use the keyboard shortcut Shift+T to search for any piece of code in your repository.
It’s totally free. We’re excited to share some of the early feedback:
After installing it, view some code on GitHub and hover your mouse over identifiers:
