Suchen,

Verwende die REST-API, um auf GitHub AE nach bestimmten Elementen zu suchen.

Informationen zur Suche

Du kannst die REST-API verwenden, um nach dem bestimmten Element zu suchen, das du finden möchtest. Du kannst beispielsweise bestimmte Benutzer*innen oder Dateien in einem Repository suchen. Du kannst dir die Such-API wie eine Google-Suche vorstellen. Sie ist so konzipiert, dass du das eine Ergebnis findest, nach dem du suchst (oder vielleicht die wenigen Ergebnisse, nach denen du suchst). Wie bei der Google-Suche möchtest du manchmal einige Seiten mit Suchergebnissen anzeigen, damit du das Element finden kannst, das deine Anforderungen am besten erfüllt. Dafür bietet die GitHub AE-REST-API bis zu 1.000 Ergebnisse für jede Suche.

Du kannst deine Suche mithilfe von Abfragen einschränken. Weitere Informationen zur Syntax der Suchabfrage findest du unter Erstellen einer Suchabfrage.

Sortieren von Suchergebnissen nach Rang

Wenn keine andere Sortieroption als Abfrageparameter bereitgestellt wird, werden die Ergebnisse nach der besten Übereinstimmung in absteigender Reihenfolge sortiert. Mehrere Faktoren werden kombiniert, um das relevanteste Element an den Anfang der Ergebnisliste zu bringen.

Rate Limit

Die REST-API verfügt über ein benutzerdefiniertes Ratenlimit für die Suche. Für Anforderungen mit der Standardauthentifizierung, OAuth oder Client-ID und Geheimnis kannst du bis zu 30 Anforderungen pro Minute senden. Für nicht authentifizierte Anforderungen ermöglicht die Ratenbegrenzung bis zu 10 Anforderungen pro Minute.

Weitere Informationen zum Bestimmen des aktuellen Ratenbegrenzungsstatus findest du in der Dokumentation zur Ratenbegrenzung.

Erstellen einer Suchabfrage

Von jedem Endpunkt für Suchvorgänge werden Abfrageparameter dazu verwendet, Suchvorgänge für GitHub AE auszuführen. Beispiele, die den Endpunkt und die Abfrageparameter enthalten, findest du bei den einzelnen Endpunkten.

Eine Abfrage kann eine beliebige Kombination aus Suchqualifizierern enthalten, die für GitHub AE unterstützt werden. Das Format der Suchabfrage lautet:

SEARCH_KEYWORD_1 SEARCH_KEYWORD_N QUALIFIER_1 QUALIFIER_N

Wenn du beispielsweise nach allen Repositorys von defunkt suchen möchtest, die die Wörter GitHub und Octocat in der README-Datei enthalten, verwende die folgende Abfrage mit dem Endpunkt Durchsuchen von Repositorys:

GitHub Octocat in:readme user:defunkt

Hinweis: Stelle sicher, dass du den bevorzugten HTML-Encoder deiner Sprache verwendest, um deine Abfragezeichenfolgen zu erstellen. Beispiel:

// JavaScript
const queryString = 'q=' + encodeURIComponent('GitHub Octocat in:readme user:defunkt');

In Suchen auf GitHub findest du eine vollständige Liste der verfügbaren Qualifizierer, ihr Format und ein Beispiel für ihre Verwendung. Informationen zum Verwenden von Operatoren zum Suchen von Übereinstimmungen mit bestimmten Mengen oder Datumsangaben oder zum Ausschließen von Ergebnissen findest du unter Grundlegendes zur Suchsyntax.

Einschränkungen der Abfragelänge

Du kannst keine Abfragen verwenden, die:

  • länger als 256 Zeichen sind (ausschließlich Operatoren oder Qualifizierern)
  • über mehr als fünf AND-, OR- oder NOT-Operatoren verfügen

Diese Suchabfragen geben eine Fehlermeldung „Überprüfung fehlgeschlagen“ zurück.

Grenzwerte des Suchbereichs

Damit die Geschwindigkeit der REST-API für alle aufrechterhalten wird, wird die Anzahl der Repositorys begrenzt, die von einer Abfrage durchsucht werden. Von der REST-API werden bis zu 4.000 Repositorys gefunden, die deinen Filtern entsprechen, und es werden Ergebnisse aus diesen Repositorys zurückgegeben.

Timeouts und unvollständige Ergebnisse

Damit die Geschwindigkeit der REST-API für alle aufrechterhalten wird, wird die Dauer einer einzelnen Abfrage begrenzt. Für Abfragen, die das Zeitlimit überschreiten, gibt die API die Übereinstimmungen zurück, die bereits vor dem Timeout gefunden wurden, und in der Antwort ist die incomplete_results-Eigenschaft auf true festgelegt.

Das Erreichen des Zeitlimits bedeutet jedoch nicht in jedem Fall, dass die Suchergebnisse unvollständig sind. Es kann sein, dass weitere Ergebnisse gefunden wurden.

Zugriffsfehler oder fehlende Suchergebnisse

Du musst dich erfolgreich authentifizieren und Zugriff auf die Repositorys in deinen Suchabfragen haben. Andernfalls wird ein 422 Unprocessable Entry-Fehler mit einer Meldung „Überprüfung fehlgeschlagen“ angezeigt. Die Suche schlägt beispielsweise fehl, wenn deine Abfrage repo:-, user:- oder org:-Qualifizierer enthält, die Ressourcen anfordern, auf die du keinen Zugriff hast, wenn du dich bei GitHub anmeldest.

Wenn deine Suchabfrage mehrere Ressourcen anfordert, enthält die Antwort nur die Ressourcen, auf die du Zugriff hast, und stellt keine Fehlermeldung bereit, die die Ressourcen enthält, die nicht zurückgegeben wurden.

Wenn deine Suchabfrage z. B. nach den Repositorys octocat/test und codertocat/test sucht, du aber nur Zugriff auf octocat/test hast, zeigt deine Antwort Suchergebnisse für octocat/test und nichts für codertocat/test. Dieses Verhalten simuliert, wie die Suche auf GitHub funktioniert.

Metadaten für Textübereinstimmung

Auf GitHub kannst du den Kontext verwenden, der von Codeschnipseln und Hervorhebungen in Suchergebnissen bereitgestellt wird. Von den zur Suche verwendeten Endpunkten werden zusätzliche Metadaten zurückgegeben, mit denen du die übereinstimmenden Suchbegriffe beim Anzeigen von Suchergebnissen hervorheben kannst.

Hervorhebung von Codeausschnitten

Für Anforderungen besteht die Option, diese Textfragmente in der Antwort zu erhalten, und jedes Fragment wird von numerischen Offsets begleitet, die die genaue Position jedes übereinstimmenden Suchbegriffs identifizieren.

Gib zum Abrufen dieser Metadaten in deinen Suchergebnissen den text-match-Medientyp in deiner Accept-Kopfzeile an.

application/vnd.github.text-match+json

Wenn du den text-match-Medientyp bereitstellst, erhältst du einen zusätzlichen Schlüssel namens text_matches in der JSON-Nutzlast, der Informationen über die Position deiner Suchbegriffe innerhalb des Texts und die property bereitstellt, die den Suchbegriff enthält. Innerhalb des text_matches-Arrays enthält jedes Objekt die folgenden Attribute:

NameBESCHREIBUNG
object_urlDie URL für die Ressource, die eine Zeichenfolgeneigenschaft enthält, die einem der Suchbegriffe entspricht.
object_typeDer Name für den Typ der Ressource, die in der angegebenen object_url vorhanden ist.
propertyDer Name einer Eigenschaft der Ressource, die in der object_url vorhanden ist. Diese Eigenschaft ist eine Zeichenfolge, die einem der Suchbegriffe entspricht. (In der von object_url zurückgegebenen JSON wird der vollständige Inhalt für das fragment in der Eigenschaft mit diesem Namen gefunden.)
fragmentEine Teilmenge des Werts von property. Dies ist das Textfragment, das einem oder mehreren Suchbegriffen entspricht.
matchesEin Array eines oder mehrerer Suchbegriffe, die in fragment vorhanden sind. Die Indizes (d. h. „Offsets“) sind relativ zum Fragment. (Sie sind nicht relativ zum vollständigen Inhalt von property.)

Beispiel

Mit einem curl-Befehl und dem obigen Beispiel für die Suche nach einem Issue würde unsere API-Anforderung wie folgt aussehen:

curl -H 'Accept: application/vnd.github.text-match+json' \
'https://HOSTNAME/api/v3/search/issues?q=windows+label:bug \
+language:python+state:open&sort=created&order=asc'

Die Antwort enthält ein text_matches-Array für jedes Suchergebnis. Im folgenden JSON haben wir zwei Objekte im text_matches-Array.

Die erste Textübereinstimmung ist in der body-Eigenschaft des Issues aufgetreten. Es wird ein Fragment aus dem Issuetext angezeigt. Der Suchbegriff (windows) wird zweimal innerhalb dieses Fragments angezeigt, und wir haben die Indizes für jedes Vorkommen.

Die zweite Textübereinstimmung ist in der body-Eigenschaft eines der Issuekommentare aufgetreten. Wir haben die URL für den Issuekommentar. Und natürlich sehen wir ein Fragment aus dem Kommentartext. Der Suchbegriff (windows) wird einmal innerhalb dieses Fragments angezeigt.

Search code

Works with GitHub Apps

Searches for query terms inside of a file. This method returns up to 100 results per page.

When searching for code, you can get text match metadata for the file content and file path fields when you pass the text-match media type. For more details about how to receive highlighted search results, see Text match metadata.

For example, if you want to find the definition of the addClass function inside jQuery repository, your query would look something like this:

q=addClass+in:file+language:js+repo:jquery/jquery

This query searches for the keyword addClass within a file's contents. The query limits the search to files where the language is JavaScript in the jquery/jquery repository.

Due to the complexity of searching code, there are a few restrictions on how searches are performed:

  • Only the default branch is considered. In most cases, this will be the master branch.
  • Only files smaller than 384 KB are searchable.
  • You must always include at least one search term when searching source code. For example, searching for language:go is not valid, while amazing language:go is.

Parameters

Headers
Name, Type, BESCHREIBUNG
acceptstring

Setting to application/vnd.github+json is recommended.

Query parameters
Name, Type, BESCHREIBUNG
qstringRequired

The query contains one or more search keywords and qualifiers. Qualifiers allow you to limit your search to specific areas of GitHub AE. The REST API supports the same qualifiers as the web interface for GitHub AE. To learn more about the format of the query, see Constructing a search query. See "Searching code" for a detailed list of qualifiers.

sortstring

Sorts the results of your query. Can only be indexed, which indicates how recently a file has been indexed by the GitHub AE search infrastructure. Default: best match

Value: indexed

orderstring

Determines whether the first search result returned is the highest number of matches (desc) or lowest number of matches (asc). This parameter is ignored unless you provide sort.

Default: desc

Can be one of: desc, asc

per_pageinteger

The number of results per page (max 100).

Default: 30

pageinteger

Page number of the results to fetch.

Search issues and pull requests

Works with GitHub Apps

Find issues by state and keyword. This method returns up to 100 results per page.

When searching for issues, you can get text match metadata for the issue title, issue body, and issue comment body fields when you pass the text-match media type. For more details about how to receive highlighted search results, see Text match metadata.

For example, if you want to find the oldest unresolved Python bugs on Windows. Your query might look something like this.

q=windows+label:bug+language:python+state:open&sort=created&order=asc

This query searches for the keyword windows, within any open issue that is labeled as bug. The search runs across repositories whose primary language is Python. The results are sorted by creation date in ascending order, which means the oldest issues appear first in the search results.

Note: For user-to-server GitHub App requests, you can't retrieve a combination of issues and pull requests in a single query. Requests that don't include the is:issue or is:pull-request qualifier will receive an HTTP 422 Unprocessable Entity response. To get results for both issues and pull requests, you must send separate queries for issues and pull requests. For more information about the is qualifier, see "Searching only issues or pull requests."
