Is it possible to search public repositories in bitbucket? Currently, when I use the search function, I only get search results from my own repositories. 


I was hoping it would be a similar experience like Github. This makes engagement and contributions much more easier if we could explore new cool projects.

Hi @geocine,

You are right when you say that the search feature does not search on public repositories.

This is also described on the Bitbucket Search documentation page in the "Search scopes" paragraph:

To search in public repositories that aren't associated to any accounts you have access to, go to that repository and search there.

 

There are a couple of options available to achieve a similar result:

- First the Overview page (https://bitbucket.org/dashboard/overview) will populate with repositories that you have contributed and accessed overtime

- The Explore page (https://bitbucket.org/repo/all) has been created for the purpose of searching for new repositories

- Google search can help as well. These are in the end public repositories and, as such, are indexed in Google. By adding the "site: https://bitbucket.org" string to your search, you'll be able to find public repositories.

 

Cheers,

Caterina - Atlassian

That's correct @Daniel Sanchez, the link is not available in the dashboard.

This seems very counter intuitive. Surely making this easier would only make the open source community consider Bitbucket more over Github/Gitlab/et al.

I'm seeing 0 results from repo/all:Screenshot 2023-02-24 at 14-44-29 Repositories — Bitbucket.png

Is this what others are seeing now?

I just had a wonderfully unintuitive experience where I was browsing a repo on bitbucket and wanted to leave an issue. Bitbucket suggested I login before doing so. As an easily persuaded person, I thought why not. But when I did so, I discovered that there is literally no way to escape my own dashboard. After having pressed buttons for 5 minutes or so and concluding that I must be missing something, I did a search and came across this and felt compelled to tell this short story. All in all, don't regret moving my repos to github.

At least link

https://bitbucket.org/repo/all

somewhere on the dashboard. I don't know how I'm supposed to find it. Or provide something, even if it's a shortcut to a google search.

Any one can easily search github repos from Google , but it is not the same with bitbucket.

I want to search for a public repo. After struggling for 5 minutes with no hope, I have to google "how to search for public repo in bitbucket" to reach this page. While on github, the search bar to search for public repo is in the first page.

Bitbucket will just loose users with this weird design.

Why "https://bitbucket.org/repo/all" isn't listed on the main page is beyond me.. had to search on how to do this.. 

both github and gitlab have a search directly from the main github.com and gitlab.com pages

Bitbucket really needs to be doing the same

+1   I read somewhere that they are indexed on Google by default, but it is just untrue.
