What is Sourcegraph?

Sourcegraph is a code search engine that lets you search across hundreds of thousands of libraries and browse code in the same way you can do in a great IDE. Search for a function, see live examples of how it’s used by other repositories, and jump to the definition of other code around it—even if the definition is in a completely different repository.

What is Hound by Etsy?

Hound is an extremely fast source code search engine. The core is based on this article (and code) from Russ Cox: Regular Expression Matching with a Trigram Index. Hound itself is a static React frontend that talks to a Go backend. The backend keeps an up-to-date index for each repository and answers searches through a minimal API.
