Sourcegraph API (experimental!)

You can use the mergestat command to query the Sourcegraph API.


You must provide an authentication token in order to use the Sourcegraph API tables. You can create a personal access token following these instructions. The mergestat command will look for a SOURCEGRAPH_TOKEN environment variable when executing, to use for authentication. This is also true if running as a runtime loadable extension.

Table-valued-function that returns results from a Sourcegraph search.


__typename will be one of Repository, CommitSearchResult, or FileMatch. results will be the JSON value of a search result (will match what's returned from the API)
