You can search wikis using search qualifiers in any combination to narrow your search results.


  • There's a list of search syntaxes you can add to any search qualifier to further improve your results.
  • Use quotations around your multi-word search terms. For example, if you want to search for issues with the label "In progress," you'd search for label:"in progress". Search is not case sensitive.

Search within a user or organization's repositories

To find wiki pages from all repositories owned by a certain user or organization, use the user qualifier. To find wiki pages from a specific repository, use the repo qualifier. For example:

Matches wiki pages from repositories owned by @defunkt.
Matches wiki pages from @defunkt's "gibberish" repository.

Search within a wiki page title or body text

The in qualifier limits the search to the wiki page title or body text. Without the qualifier, both the title and body text are searched.

usage in:title
Matches wiki page titles with the word "usage."
installation in:body
Matches wiki pages with the word "installation" in their main body text.

Search by last updated date

The updated qualifier matches wiki pages that were last updated within the specified date range.

usage updated:>2016-01-01
Matches wiki pages with the word "usage" that were last updated after 2016-01-01.

Sort the results by last updated date

With any of the qualifiers above, you can also sort by the most recently updated wiki page in descending or ascending order. For example:

usage sort:updated-desc
Sorts pages containing the word "usage" by descending last updated date.
usage sort:updated-asc
Sorts pages containing the word "usage" by ascending last updated date.
