Watermelon for Visual Studio Code
Watermelon is a Passive Documentation Search Engine serving both our GitHub app and IDE extension. Our set of plug-ins help developers understand code context, improve their coding velocity and merge PRs like a breeze.
We've built a search algorithm that indexes the most relevant passive documentation for a given block of code.
To obtain business context in your IDE, use this extension.

We use VS Code's telemetry library. The library respects the user's decision about whether or not to send telemetry data.
We also have settings to disable it.
Watermelon doesn't store your code
Watermelon is built by a globally distributed team of developers devoted to making software development easier. Join our Discord community, follow us on Twitter and go to the Watermelon blog to get the best programming tips.
