Open Know-How Search

[Open Know-How Search]

Open Know-How Search is a project to create a search engine for the open source hardware designs. We are building a modern, clean and accessible search experience for makers. Our index will span the entire internet and all existing ways to share designs. Users and platforms will be able to make use of the Open Know-How meta-data standard to help get their projects into the index and surface those that are in advanced stages of development and worth looking at and attempting to re-build. The front page and top results in the search will be a useful resource to someone looking for a new open source hardware project to build and contribute to.
