Remove coders query from plugins
« on: January 17, 2022, 11:28:22 pm »
It seems that coders query, alias black duck is now www.openhub.net and i do not seem to find the code search, it looks like some spamy website, with no real benefit (i am open if some one disagrees with me)

we probably should remove the plugin from our code base...

There are some other code search engine, such as:

https://www.codegrepper.com

Or

https://searchcode.com/

Maybe, we can let the user choose which search engine they like.  ;)
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

Looks like Grepper has no public API. Searchcode has an API, but it is a one person project so it may end abruptly.

FWIW, if nobody has complained about Koders Query not working in the last 10 years I am pretty sure that the plugin is not used at all.

Looks like removing cb_koders was proposed a while ago. The changes along with a bunch of other ones can be seen in the following PR:
