I also have a similar project, call clang-tags:


Mine is in C++, and records tagging information into a relational database, to
allow for compact, expressive queries about the entities you are looking for
(and their context, or relation to other entities).

Development is blocked on clang#13224 right now, but when it's unblocked I
plan on added a very sexy Emacs interface for browsing your code based on that

Like your tool, I rely on the compilation database, so building the index is
not a trivial (or a quick) thing.  But once gathered, the information
available is very rich.
