I had mentioned Krugle last November when Ken Krugler gave a demo at the Chicago Perl Hackathon. (Krugle is a search engine for code.) Well, it looks like the Yahoo! Developer Network is now using Krugle to power it’s code search at ydn.krugle.com, which is very cool.

Ken was really open to ideas and suggestions when he demoed krugle, and it looks like it’ll be a good match for both parties. Congrats to Ken and his team and the folks at Yahoo!

Krugle is a search engine for code. Ken Krugler (the guy behind Krugle) gave a talk at the Chicago Perl Hackathon about about it, and was looking for feedback and suggestions on how to improve it.

Here are a few interesting points from his talk:

  • Krugle has 20 million source files, which is about 1 billion lines of code
  • Much of the code is sucked down from repositories and cached locally to allow for their browsing interface
  • Sponsored results will always be separate from search results
  • Krugle is not affiliated with Google (Yes, they got a letter…)
  • Krugle will always compliment existing communities, and not diminish the value of those communities
  • Krugle is build on open-source, the UI is theirs, eventually they will add API‘s to allow you to take you data with you

Ken Krugler And of course, there’s the question of the business model. Ken said they’ve gotten some money from VC‘s, they also show sponsored ads, they’ve got a developer programs, and are working on an enterprise product.

Oh, they’ve also got a blog, like any new company should…
