[#VS2013] Bing Code Search! (no, it is not the code search you are thinking right now)


If you’re a developer, for sure you feel a great illusion when you see the words SEARCH and CODE in the same sentence. Unfortunately, this is another example where you don’t have an integrated search engine of text in the source code repository.

However, this extension is very useful. What makes this extension is to save you the work of go to BING, search an example, navigate the answer and see the code example. This extension summarized you everything is in 2 steps

1. You are looking for within the IDE

2. The results are CODE SNIPPETS

A video that explain it with words as always best

VS Code Search

Well, while this seems a simple search box code, the truth is now making much more.

The first thing we have to bear in mind is that it is a creation of the friends of MS Research, so there is an academic level pretty good behind it.

A detail to take into account is that in addition to a search for the Code Snippet, if he is released from a context where for example a variable is used, the result of code includes the use of that variable. An example of this can be seen here.

And finally if you want to see an ONLINE demo of this functionality you can see it here.
