    Would you be willing to publish a paper and open source the code that makes this amazing project possible? I am sure many people would love to dive into this, my self included.

    I would love to see the source code published so that this website could be something that can be mirrored and shared with the rest of the world. I would love to have an offline version of this site running if possible.

    I’d love to see the source too. I’m extremely interested about how the random number generator works. There isn’t much detail in the “Theory” page. Simply hints that it uses bit shifts and modular arithmetic.

    Hey friends,

    I definitely want to publish the source code – I’m interested to see what other curiosities folks might create with it. I’m working on a downloadable version of the library that will be open source. It probably won’t be finished until early next year, though.

    I am looking forward to it 😀

    Awesome! Thank you so much! Would it be too much to ask for you to create a GitHub repository now so people can star it and be updated when you actually add the code? 🙂

    Not at all – I’m very excited that you all are interested, and I look forward to seeing what people come up with once the project is open source!

    Starred and followed! Thank you so much, I look very forward to diving into this when you release it! <3

    I would also be extremely eager to see the source code for this project. I have followed the git project as well, i can’t wait to see it.

    Why does it take so long to publish the source code behind this?

    A few friends of me and i are just not sure if all of this is fake or this is a “real” library of babel.

    We would like to know more about the tech behind it and, in the first place, how the search works. I mean, how do you search through so many pages in such a short time?

    You could argue the code already is open. After all, you can just go to the library and get it, provided you know where to look. 😉

    Could you not just copy the code on the website and post it somewhere? Or maybe explain how the random generation works a bit more precise?

    Often when devs decide to wait before publishing source code, it’s because they want to clean up the code first. The code may not be easily understandable by others and comments may be needed. We’ll simply have to wait. Or find the source in the library as Jani suggested.

    Awesome, that’d be great to have a version I could run locally. No lag from a ton of visitors and if the original goes down there will still be copies available! Can’t wait 🙂

    I’m really happy that so many people are interested in seeing the code and possibly collaborating on expanding the project. I apologize that it’s taken me a while.
