A recent press release reports, “Sourcegraph, the leader in universal code search, intelligence, and automation, today announced a new collaboration with GitLab, along with the world’s first universal source code search engine. The company has experienced exponential growth fueled by its expanding community of over 10,000 paid developers and tens of thousands of free open source developers who actively use its platform. ‘GitLab and Sourcegraph are both oriented around the open source developer community and strive to improve the lives of developers everywhere,’ said Quinn Slack, co-founder and CEO of Sourcegraph. ‘Today’s news of our integration shows that GitLab recognizes that code intelligence is essential, and is putting their weight behind Sourcegraph to provide it for all developers around the world’.”
The release goes on, “Sourcegraph’s native GitLab integration provides code intelligence for all open source projects on GitLab.com and GitLab self-managed. Developers can access go-to-definition and find references from inside their code review workflow to reduce context switching and improve the quality of code reviews. With this integration, Sourcegraph enhances developers’ existing code review tool with inline code intelligence, helping speed up the review cycle and catch bugs before they’re deployed to production. Developers know, love, and have come to expect good find references and go-to-definition functionality in their IDEs. Sourcegraph provides this functionality at scale across all repositories and code hosts within an organization, and adds this functionality natively to GitLab.”
