Find code snippets. Lightning fast and always a step ahead.

Ctrlflow provides fast and powerful code search for Java developers. Whether you need snippets for method arguments or references to methods, or you’re looking for particular strings in the code, Ctrlflow returns results in milliseconds and even includes expressions, type casts and string literals.

As soon as you start typing your search query, context-sensitive algorithms begin analyzing the code environment at the current cursor position. This enables Ctrlflow to recognize what’s important to you and present all the relevant code snippets — in real-time.

Ctrlflow displays even large quantities of results in a clear and easily understandable way. Frequently-used code snippets are easy to spot thanks to the many aggregation options. And the powerful filter and sorting functions enable you to sort the results not just by project, package or class but also according to the frequency and usage of the expressions.

With Ctrlflow’s integrated preview feature you can immediately view all the snippets, including the surrounding code, all without a separate editor or cluttering your screen with additional windows.
