Depending on the client you are testing, they may have an internal development team that checks code into a git repo. The vast majority of the clients I've seen implement the Atlassian suite of tools, typically containing an internally hosted Bitbucket.
The Bitbucket web interface has a search feature for looking for code snippets. It's absolutely awful. It's like an off brand tonka toys reject of a search function. You know what's way better? grep. That means I'd have to download every repo to search it locally. I did that with this script:
It's handy to note that grepping isn't the only good thing about cloning repos locally. It allows you to run the myriad of vuln checker tools, load up the code into an IDE and run source/sink analysis on it, and much more.
