Krugle, Inc., which is a code search engine for developers, has announced it will supply search functionality for the Yahoo! Developer Network.
The Yahoo Developer Network is a centralized resource for the developer community that offers open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and Web Services that make it easy to extend and build on Yahoo’s products and services.
It will also provide users with contextual information as they browse the code, such as associated documentation and dependencies, bug reports, commentary, and user-tagged code and search results that are easily shared among colleagues.
“One of the reasons for Yahoo!’s success has been the company’s strong belief in opening up its products for third party developers,” said Steve Larsen, CEO of Krugle. “By publishing open APIs and helpful documentation, they create an active and engaged community and encourage developers to create applications which utilize Yahoo!’s technology in new and innovative ways. With this partnership, Krugle will make it easier than ever to leverage the true potential of Yahoo!’s open APIs and Web Services.”
