The code for the Android open source project consists of a series of Git-managed code libraries. To obtain or view this code, you need to use Git (an open source version control system) and repo (a code base management tool that complicates Git), which is why many of the developers’ usual tools, such as GitHub and Gitweb, don’t work well with it.

Working with our Code Search colleagues at Google and using Kythe, Google’s open source source analysis tool, we’re excited to launch the Android open source Search tool for developers. Hopefully, this tool will make open source code more fully available to developers.

The current features are:

  • Easy to view, search source code
  • A code jump that cross-references an entire code base by clicking on one part of the source code to jump to another
  • Switching between open source branches of Android (not all branches have cross-reference information)
  • Relating to the relevant code search tools and document can be in here to see: the source. The android, Google. Cn/setup/contr…

In addition to searching Android Open Source project (AOSP) code, our code search tool also provides source code search for CameraX, Jetpack Compose and other AndroidX libraries.
