Hi.

I know Swarm isn't GitHub, but when it comes to code browsing for the teams, GitHub is a good example and source of inspiration.

Are you planning to introduce a depot files search by keyword, like one can do on GitHub?
We'd find this very useful. In fact, that absence of such feature now is a paint.

Please let me know if search is anywhere on the roadmap for development of Swarm.

Thanks.

GitHub is a fantastic example and a great source of inspiration I agree.

We've had a team working on search, we too like the idea very much. A bit of detail on their work is documented here:

Though p4-search is presently an independent product, you can configure it to take you to Swarm to view the details when results are clicked.
We'd like to add a search box right into Swarm that leverages p4-search but I'm afraid I don't know if/when that might happen.

Has anything ever come of this? It would be really nice to have a search box for file content/metadata in Swarm.
