The Dilbert Strip Finder

Find that Dilbert strip!

Have you ever wanted to find a Dilbert comic strip on a particular topic? You can try the Dilbert site but you can't always find it there.

Here is what to do: Simply enter one or two words into the search box above. You will get a list of Dilbert strips by date, a short description, and a link.

Search

Search is working normally. If you notice any problems, technical or otherwise, please let me know. This includes if you can't find the strip you're looking for.

If you do still have problems, you have these other options to search:

  1. You can download the DSI. Open the dsistrips.json file with your favourite text editor, and search in there. That's what this site has always done. Get the DSI download here.
  2. Head on over to the Dilbert site and use their search. It works ok.

Downloads

The DSI source is hosted at Github, and I make all changes available there.

You can visit the project page. The project page will keep you informed of the latest commits and minor changes as part of the commit log that git keeps.

If you prefer, you can download the latest zip file. The zip file is a convenient way to get the latest without having to go through the git checkout process.

Minor increments of releases will not be announced as they were before, as I hope to make it a more "rolling" schedule. I will announce major changes, like format changes for example.

Status

The Finder has all strips from the beginning of the newspaper publication, 1989-04-16, up to 2014-06-04.

In addition to the search function, I have set up strip descriptions as browsable pages. That way, the search engines can help me index. We'll see how it turns out.
