I know that Google has code search that helps to find something within code.

I wonder if there is any way to get list of sites that uses particular engine?

For example find all sites that use XWiki engine or MediaWiki engine?

I know that sources of this opensource projects here:



And Google Code Search searches within them. But I was looking for a way to list sites that use this engine.

Can anyone advise me? Could it be that there is some other search service that I can use for this purpose?

    Google Code provides code project hosting. It's search engine only searches the content that resides in its own repository; it doesn't search content in hosted in other sites. – Rubén Oct 6 '15 at 17:36

This may not provide the complete list of wiki sites on the Internet as some wiki sites are private and configured to be not indexed.

You can get an idea of the numbers with nerdydata.com.


Search <link rel="alternate" type="application/x-wiki" in nerdydata.com

23,595 result


Search <meta name="generator" content="MediaWiki in nerdydata.com

49,526 result
