git clone 'git://'


StackOverflow Search (SOS) mode for Emacs.


Invoked with the sos command

M-x sos

Enter your query and search results are displayed with their excerpts in an org-mode buffer:

M-x sos RET why is emacs so awesome? RET

In the search results buffer, if you have a question at point, you can use sos-answer to retrieve all answers for that question. You can also press “A” on the question to run sos-answer.

M-X sos-answer

There's an alternative to sos-mode floating out there: sx.el which uses the Stack Exchange API and works with more than just StackOverflow.
