I can also recommend a GNU project here: GNU Global
(https://www.gnu.org/software/global/).  GNU Global is free software
that can generate a code browsing website for a software project where
you can search for symbols, navigate to function definitions, etc.
Here's an example of how a website generated by GNU Global looks like:

GNU Global can integrate with multiple tagging backends.  One of them is
ctags/etags, which provides support for Emacs Lisp.
