There is a really nice feature on the secure.phabricator.com site which is when I type the name of a function name in arcanist,phabricator or phputil it comes up with the PHP method
clicking the method takes me to the code
This is excellent for browsing the code
This path is almost identical to the Diffusion path (but its not identical), so I assume somewhere there is a mapping of search terms to php code destination? (unless your using reflection in php)
is there or has anyone ever proposed a generalized mechanism to allow integration of Diffusion hosted source code (not just php,but c++, etc) into this search mechanism?
Whilst no one would expect phabricator to be able to look for functions in an arbitrary languages which typically get hosted in Git repos, I wondered if there was a way to add source file,location and search terms into the search engine (which could be generated by other external tools) to give similar functionality?
