Google Code Treasures

The Google Code Treasure Chest

Today in my general daily online pottering I was looking around for some Google Maps examples, and trying to see if PlaceSearch was still a thing. Turns out it’s been deprecated, however, I did manage to find a repository of all the Google Maps sample code and examples. Pretty cool – but nothing that special. Then I started thinking about what other gems might be hosted on the googlecode.com domain. A quick sub-domain lookup later and I’d uncovered 61 different Google projects – most of which I’d never heard of.

I haven’t yet managed to trawl through all of them, and a few of them are for pretty old, there’s some gems in there, for example, the Official Google HTML/CSS Style Guide, the Google Web Toolkit, a full list of examples and sample code for Google Maps V3, and some more questionable tidbits like a tool for “exploring personal information from social networks” Witch Doctor. Don’t get too excited though – it looks like it hasn’t been worked on since 2008.

So, to save you a bit of time, the full list is below. I should point out that these generally go to the Google Code entry for each project. If you want to go straight to the SVN trunk (where all the fun stuff is), just navigate straight to http://[PROJECT URL]/svn/trunk, for example http://gmaps-samples-v3.googlecode.com/svn/trunk.

Have fun anyway, and if you find any really good ones then please add a comment!

UPDATE

A second glance at the results of the sub domain lookup revealed that all the googlecode.com sub domains live on the same IP address 173.194.70.82 – so just to check if there was any others there that hadn’t been found by the sub domain lookup, I did a reverse DNS lookup on that IP. Short answer – there’s LOADS of them. Here’s a full list, paginated for your pleasure:
