Here is the search engine. And here, for example is a mind map for learning computer science.

The idea is that a person can type what he wants to learn and the most efficient path to learning the topic is shown.

I always wanted to build a search engine that shows the most efficient paths to learn anything in a linear way.

The most awesome thing is that if anyone thinks there is a better way to learn any of the topics, one can say it since it is an open source project.

Would love to hear your thoughts on it.

      Reminds me of Aristotle, the knowledge web. Very cool.

      Wow, this is impressive. Super fast, too. Excellent concept and execution.

        Thank you. ?

          Not sure why this is a question.

      Thanks for sharing!

      I’m getting 502’ ed at the moment, but I was able to check a few topics. I’ll make to check it out again on my next endevours.

      Congratulations for the work!

        Sorry about 502. We just pushed a big update since our links were not working on mobile. Should be up now.

        I hope you like it. Would love to hear your thoughts. :)

      I like the random placeholder text! It is a really neat feature. I did not expect myself to be reading about minimalism and looking up Thich Nhat Hanh books this evening.

      Super sweet project. I especially like the minimalist design language you used to represent the search results.

      This looks great. I haven’t looked at the source code but are the paths human curated or an algo of some sort? I’m guessing with the amount of topics, it’s unlikely that a person has individually looked at each topic.

      I found spacevim throuhgh your search engine, so that’s pretty awesome.

        Thank you Steve. Actually all maps were human curated by me up until this point.

        However we are moving to a model where anyone can contribute by sending pull requests similar to GitHub awesome lists. We are also moving to D3.js render for smoother viewing and exploring experience.

        I hope you will enjoy using the search. It should be getting better and better every day especially with the help of community. :)

      Very helpful search engine

      Looks useful! A related project is Metacademy. I think (most of?) the content is CC BY-SA and GFDL, so you may even be able to integrate it with your search engine if you wanted to.

        I was actually inspired by Metacademy. I especially love their idea of knowledge dependencies and it s something we are also planning to implement. We want to show all the required knowledge needed to effectively learn any of the topics.
