Extensions should be able to contribute search results to a search. For example, if I type a query foo into Sourcegraph or GitHub search, it should be possible for extensions to provide additional results that are displayed on the search results page.

Use cases: extensions that provide search results from:

  • Google Docs
  • Formatted documentation (e.g., from Sphinx, JSDoc, etc.)
  • JIRA tickets' full text and metadata (related: #141)
  • Logs (e.g., by hitting the search API of your logging system)

This makes it possible for developers to have a single search box that searches everything they care about (all of their tools/systems).
