SkyTowner's Features
Here, we'll go through all of SkyTowner's features, which are meticulously designed to boost your productivity.

Streamlined Search

Search is at the core of SkyTowner - we strive to accelerate your workflow by answering your questions as fast and as directly as possible. To achieve this, we offer a myriad of features to streamline your search.
timer

Real-time search

Search hints will appear as you type in real-time, and this helps narrow down your query.

list_alt

Search aliases

Aliases help you type less by mapping shortcuts to long terms.

For instance, if you set the alias df:DataFrame, then the query How to initialize a df is treated as How to initialize a DataFrame.

How to phone_iphone computer

To set search aliases:

  1. open up the search panel
  2. click on the settings icon on the right
  3. click on "Search Alias"
swap_horizontal_circle

Synonym Parsing

The search engine understands synonyms, and so queries such as Removing an item from an array and Deleting an element from an array will be treated equally.

exposure

Inclusion and exclusion

Just like for Google’s search engine, you can use syntax such as "" and - to further configure your search:
  • Initializing a list "Python" would only include search results related to Python.
  • Initializing a list -Python would exclude all search results related to Python.

local_offer

Filtering by tag

We cover a diverse range of topics, so you often want to apply filters to narrow down the scope of your search.

For instance, suppose you’re working on a project using Python, and you search for How to sort a list. Since lists exist in many programming languages, most of your search results will be irrelevant. In such cases, applying the filter Python will ensure that you only get results related to Python.

To set filters:

  1. open up the search panel
  2. click on the settings icon on the right
  3. click on "Filter by tag"

Personalized search

When you register an account, you will be able to indicate your interests as part of your profile. We optimize search results based on your specific interests.

For instance, if you include Python in your interest tags, searching for sorting an array will prioritize results related to Python.

mic_none

Voice search

Without opening the search panel, hold down the v key and ask us your question. If there is a relevant match, we'll take you to that page directly!

Warning

This feature is only available for Chrome on PC.

code

API search

You can directly search for a documentation of a specific API (e.g. properties and methods) by adding the @ prefix. For instance, @append will return the documentation of the append method across all programming languages and libraries.
