Show HN: Whize (Alpha) – Discovery focused search engine
1 point by Grimm1 9 days ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 1 comment

Hi there, so this is an early version of Whize, a discovery focused search engine. Currently, as a proof of concept / concept demo we've crawled all (as of a few weeks ago) of public github and given you a search engine that returns repo results based on relevancy and our notion of novelty and recency.

We are privacy focused and want to provide a search experience that doesn't follow you across the internet.

We would love feedback and generally, we are trying to figure out if we should expand on this and are trying to gauge people's interest.

You can read in-depth about what we are trying to do here: https://medium.com/@iantbutler01/existing-search-engines-fail-independent-and-small-businesses-enter-whize-404958949534
