StackUnderflow.js is a lightweight JavaScript library that makes retrieving and rendering question summary information from Stack Exchange sites simple. It supports retrieving questions by question ID, tags, keyword, and even by Google search results to enable you to search the body of questions, even though the Stack Exchange API does not support it.

StackUnderflow.js is designed to be used within your own sites, enabling you to easily include Stack Exchange information on your sites.

It also adds the ability to search the content of questions by abstracting away an Ajax Google search for you. This enables some powerful capabilities, such as:

  • Display questions that link to your blog.
  • Display questions that link to the current blog article.
  • Display questions related to keyword or tags on a bug tracking site.
  • Display questions related to a feature directly from online documentation for your products.

The screenshot above shows it in action, automatically displaying questions that link to my blog (and as you click on an article, each questions that link to each article). You can see that live by scrolling the bottom of my blog,

Or, link to it directly from your site:
Or better yet, fork and customize StackUnderflow.js on GitHub, StackUnderflow.js on GitHub.
