re: A very simple command line tool as a side-project to learn go. VIEW POST


TIL about both Buku and Larder, but I have a question: How do they differ from tools like Evernote/OneNote - and assuming you've used either, which (out of all of them) would you say is the best?

I've been using

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. Here it is in action:

Quick Start Guide

Using Go Tools

  1. Use the Go tools to install Hound. The binaries houndd (server) and hound (cli) will be installed in your $GOPATH.
go get github.com/etsy/hound/cmds/
  1. Create a config.json in a directory with your list of repositories.

  2. Run the Hound server with houndd and you should see output similar to:

2015/03/13 09:07:42 Searcher started for statsd
2015/03/13 09:07:42 Searcher started for Hound
2015/03/13 09:07:42 All indexes built
2015/03/13 09:07:42 running server at http://localhost:6080...

Using Docker (1.4+)

  1. Create a config.json in a directory with…

search tool to collate repos that I find (and deem useful for development) for a while - online however, I've used both Evernote and OneNote and neither have really been that useful to me.

Recently I've also started using the "Email this page" Chrome extension in the hope that I can use Google's searching within gmail to help me refer back to useful articles.


Hey Alex, I'm not sure if we can compare any of the tools you mention. But hey, if it works for you nice!
