Welcome to ctags-instant.

This is a web-interface that allows you to search through identifiers
in your source code.  Currently, tags are generated using ctags;
support for other tag generators like GNU/Global will be added later.

This is just a proof of concept app, and I would not consider this a
well written software by any standards.  Please use this with
caution. :)

How to run
----------

You'll need the following programs.  The first two need to be in your
$PATH.

  * Exuberant ctags: http://ctags.sourceforge.net
  * mongodb: http://www.mongodb.org
  * python: http://www.python.org

You'll need the following libraries for python.  All of them can be
easy_install'ed..

  * pymongo
  * Flask: http://flask.pocoo.org
  * termcolor
  * json
  * argparse

Then, just type:

  $ python instant.py -d /path/to/source/dir

Then, point your browser to: http://localhost:5000
