GitLab Search on GitHub

gitlab search

The code search in GitLab CE is limited to one repo at a time. With GitLab Search the scope of search is all repositories. After install, the configuration command can be:

gitlab-search setup --api-domain http://myMac.local read_api-PERSONAL-accessToken

When Terminal opens, the current directory is the user directory by default. Seems OK to create the config file there. SHIFT+CMD+. reveals it / hides it. Than when Terminal opens:

gitlab-search myOneWordSearchTerm
gitlab-search “my search term”
