GitHub creates Rust code search engine from scratch


Share post:

The developer platform GitHub has now developed its new code-focused search engine, Blackbird, using the Rust programming language, which is continuing to gain popularity. GitHub wants users to use its search engine, which is currently in beta, rather than browsing forums for solutions.

For programs written in Python, Java, and JavaScript, Blackbird from GitHub allows code searching across 15 terabytes of code and 15.5 billion documents, though it only offers partial coverage with support for searching across about 45 million repositories.

According to Pavel Avgustinov, vice president of software engineering at GitHub, Blackbird, a custom search engine written in Rust, is more effective and provides GitHub with “substantial storage savings via deduplication and guarantees a uniform load distribution across shards.”
