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

Anonymous created an issue

Hello,

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 : http://bitbucket.org/languages/python

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 :

    <?php 
    $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 :

    <?php 
    $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.
