Try Catch Stack Overflow Join the chat at

Try Catch Stack overflow (TcSo) is a project that is inspired from an online meme on javascript and stack overflow: tsso-meme As you know that, today most of the developers waste their time by searching for the generated error on Google and finding out the right solution for those from stack overflow. What if we can fully automate this process. TcSo Is a collection of Try statements in all the programming languages under the globe which catches the exception and searches for the cause of the caught exception in the stack overflow automatically. So whenever a new exception occurs, it will automatically open the stack overflow page of that exception in your browser.

Available Languages

TcSo is currently available for the following programming languages:


There are hundreds of programming languages out there. The aim of this project is to make the Try catch Stack Overflow available in all the programing languages under the globe. You can contribute to the project by:

Adding a new language

You can make this project available in your favorite programming language. Just follow the steps below:

  1. Fork it!
  2. Make a local clone:

    git clone{YOUR_USERNAME}/tcso.git
  3. Switch to the directory: cd tcso

  4. Create a new folder for your language

    mkdir your_language
    cd your_language
  5. Create your new language branch: git checkout -b language_name

  6. Add your source code try catch stack overflow to the folder.

    • Use external dependencies if and only if there is no other way of doing it natively.
    • The catch block must be able to launch the web browser with the respective stack overflow search page of the error. The browser maybe either Firefox or Google chrome.
    • You can use stack overflow tags for filtering search results based on language see: For implementing a JavaScript TcSo you will have to open the page[js]{Your-error-message-here}, Here [js] represents tag. If your language doesn't have a tag then omit the [tag] box. Then point your browser to{Your-error-message-here}
    • Use error code or error description to get best result
    • Please try to make platform independent code. If the code is not platform independent then please use the naming convention: tcso_windows.cpp, tcso_linux.cpp
    • Add a to your language folder. You can use this as a reference.
    • Add changes to git index by using git add --all .
  7. Commit your changes: git commit -am 'Added new language'

  8. Push to the branch: git push

  9. Submit a pull request :smile:
