No one enjoys the long hours and wasted time before you find the right spray to your bug.
What it does
Leverages the wealth of stack sites and their api's to get you the best and most relevant answers so you no longer need to google your bugs.
How I built it
Consumed api's provided by the Stack sites so that all searched are done against realtime data. Provided the core functionality in a graphql based Api so that anyone can intergrate it into anything they want, from text editors, ide's mobile apps, bots, etc.
Challenges I ran into
Material on the Api's. New to React (mainly a front-end dev). My team went silent on me.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The backend api. Making graphql work.
What I learned
What's next for Stack Search
Hopefully a messenger bot to start with and then atom and code integration to start with.
