Browse/search repositories by language/name/keyword/etc (BB-39)

Issue #2934 open
Former user created an issue


It would be neat if we could browse the different repositories by language (Python, Javascript, ... ). This parameter is already there when you create a repository, so I don't believe it would be a huge change.

Something like :

Would show you a list of the repos "crafted with Python".

What do you think?

Thank you.

    Similar, will there be a way to search for projects by name but only ones owned by a given user? As a consulting firm, we have many, many small projects and it would be nice to search something like this: ?owner=OurName&name=muni to return all repositories that we've created that deal specifically with municipalities. That's just an example. If there is already a way to do this that doesn't involve clicking links to page through results, please let me know.

    I wanted to search All Python and All Delphi and All C# projects on BitBucket and I could not.

    This is a fundamental functionality failure, since SourceForge has had that for years!

    In fact there are NO BROWSING FEATURES AT ALL. It's like someone at Atlassian said, hey, if we suck really bad at this, maybe GitHub will completely take over and we can quietly go home and retire BitBucket.

    I am laughing right now because there is this thing at the top level page of bitbucket that says "heeeeeey! These cool projects like tortoiseHg are hosted here!!!!".

    But then, Nothing. No browse feature. Nothing.

    Standard templates are : pagelen , page, format, callback, after.

    for example :

    $url= "?pagelen=50&page=2&format=xml&after=2014"


    And the templates are needed : language, repo_name, username, scm .

    Also the values of these templates can be separated by commas.

    for example :

    $url = "?language=php,java,ruby&repo_name=api,rest,oauth&username=hadi,kevin,dylan&scm=git";

    What do you think?

    Also you can to see URI Templates

    This would be particularly useful in work environments where there are SEVERAL projects, particularly those that have many projects that may have fallen by the wayside. For instance, due to an oracle upgrade, we've discovered that older grails projects that no one has touched in awhile and the original developers aren't available anymore are unable to auto-detect the correct dialect for those databases. It would be incredibly useful to just instantly find out which of many many projects may be affected by being able to filter by repo language, rather than having to dig through each project to determine its language individually.

    Note for others who come across this issue:

    One can currently search Bitbucket projects from here (if logged out) and here (logged in or out). One can search for a string and optionally filter by language.

    The weird part? 'repo' is actually some user's name and can be any existing name.

    Hello, we still cannot browse projects by languages? I really hope I can browse awesome projects in the languages I use and skip those I don't care about. Please, add this feature.

    Now you have three choices in 2018.

    Github. Browseable. Everyone goes here. Bitbucket will die. Only matter of time.

    Gitlab. Run your own instance or use the public one.

    Bitbucket. Still no browse/category/tag/searching capability.

    It's 2018 my dudes.

    This makes the public portions of Atlassian's code difficult to find, as well. Trying to find the functionality of a preinstalled plugin in Confluence Cloud, such as the blueprints, is near impossible. The only way I was able to find the project was through a dead link, that I had to modify to find the PROJ project and still ended up with the referenced repo no longer being accessible.
