Couple of notes about searching on Github that have proven to be quite useful:
- You can include/exclude specific files using the
filenameproperty in a search.
The following searches for content “some content” only in
some content filename:.config
The following searches for content “some content” in all files but
some content -filename:.config
- You can include/exclude specific users and organizations in a search. This is handy when I’m trying to judge how much use a library of mine is getting in the open source community while avoiding my own projects.
The following excludes matches in the specified users/organizations.
scala-debugger -user:ensime -user:chipsenkbeil
