Linux turned 30, so I built a site to instantly search through 1M Linux commits

  1. 1

    Hey everyone,

    I'm Jason and I work on Typesense (an opensource Algolia/ElasticSearch alternative): https://typesense.org.

    I recently learnt that the Linux Kernel I've used for the past 20 years crossed 1 Million commits and also turned 30 years old in 2021.

    I've been on the lookout for interesting datasets to build search interfaces with and with the 1M Linux commits milestone, I figured it would be fun to index all the 1 million Linux commit messages in Typesense and build an instant-search + browsing interface on top of it, especially to find interesting tidbits from the commit messages.

    This site is the result of that effort, and a tribute to all the hard work that has gone into a piece of software that powers a good chunk of the modern world and has personally been a bedrock for my journey into programming.

    If you find any interesting commit messages & search queries, please do share them here!
