Vingy, a search plug-in for Visual Studio

The first thing that most developer do when they have a problem, is google it. But then you are overwhelmed with the amount of results. So if you want less quantity and more quantity, you start searching on sites like StackOverflow, CodeProject, MSDN etc.

With Vingy – a simple, but effective add in for Visual Studio 2010 – you can search on all these site without leaving your Visual Studio environment.

Installing Vingy

Vingy is free and you can install it from this direct link  or via the Extensions Manager in Visual Studio 2010 (Search Vingy in the Online Gallery). Enjoy, happy coding!!

Let me know your feedback. This version is minimal, but I’ll add more meat based on your feedback. Also, planning to make it open source after a bit of code cleanup.

Using Vingy

You can bring up Vingy either by clicking View->Other Windows –> Vingy Search Window from the Visual Studio IDE, or just by highlighting some text in the document and then clicking Tools –> Search Selected Text (Ctrl + 1).
