Repository search filtering

By on December 3, 2010

It’s been amazing to watch all of the projects being added to Bitbucket since modifying our pricing plan in late September. The growth of your public and private repositories even has us looking to expand our diskspace sooner than we original planned!

With all of this growth, we’ve noticed that it’s sometimes difficult to sift through all the awesome projects that have been added to Bitbucket. To help you discover popular, existing and trending repositories we’ve added new filtering options to the repository explorer.

The new controls allow you to filter repositories by date (weekly, monthly, all time) and activity (commits, followers or forks).

Also this week, while doing some basic gardening of the APIs (bug fixes) we added a new feature that allows you to manage the access control list of your public and private repositories. Using the new API, you can add, modify or remove a user’s read, write or admin access to a repository.

If there are other REST APIs you’d like added to Bitbucket, please let us know.

Until next week, here’s the full list of changes this week:

    Looks good.

    One minor improvement would be to use css cursor: pointer; on the repo explorer filter buttons, so you get some feedback about hovering the buttons.

    Also noticed the font for the tabs seems to have changed for the worse – The new one looks like it's compressed; Not as tall and wider than the old.

    This is on Windows with the latest version of Firefox 3.6.

    Great changes.

    Are there any plans to let the users filter by language? That's very helpful if you're learning a new language and trying to find a project you can participate in.
