Meet gitTio, a search engine that indexes – all – Titanium modules and Alloy widgets in public repositories on GitHub. Search through their
widget.json properties like description and supported platforms, as well as the contents of the README and all MD’s documenting the component.
As an extra service, you can follow @gitNotified on Twitter to get notified about new and updated components. You might have already seen some tweets coming from this account with some nice stats, like this:

If you like stats, you can find more real-time ones like these the gitTio stat(u)s page.
There’s a lot more you can do with an index like this and I’m in the process of finishing a very nice use of it this week together with David Bankier. Follow @gitNotified for to get notified about that as well ;)
Of course you can also find modules and widgets on the Appcelerator Marketplace, AlloyLove.com and just a month ago Marcel Pociot launched Titanium Controls. These are manually curated collections that include closed source components as well, while gitTio fully automatically indexes all – but only – components found in public repositories on GitHub. There’s a use for both.
