I think most of the developers like to explore different tooling to make them more productive. Tools like Vim or Emacs seems like proof of this (not commenting on their learning curve though).
One of the things developers spend most of their is search. We read different studies concluding that devs spend about 15% of their time just typing queries into Google. My co-founder and I care about developers' productivity a lot and we think there should be a better solution.
We started building Devbook. Devbook is a search engine for developers. We are starting with a crude initial version that allows you to search in docs, Stack Overflow, and public GitHub code using a single input (more resources coming soon!). It's a desktop app that works similar to spotlight we the focus on being able to control using just a keyboard and not getting in your way.
We have all kinds of developers using Devbook. There beginners, students, or skilled senior devs from companies like Amazon.
You can download Devbook here. For now, it's completely free.
Would love to know what do you think about Devbook!
Also, I'd be interested to know what tools and services are you using to make you more productive? Share your stack!
