Does anyone use an online snippets manager?
« on: September 17, 2008, 03:19:27 AM »
Hi

I'm looking for an online source code snippets manager. I've tried CodeKeep (www.codekeep.net) but find it quite slow and the adverts annoying. I've tried Koders (www.koders.com) but can't get past the email verification system.

I wondered if anyone here used or knew of such a system. I don't mind paying a reasonable fee to use the facility and it could even be something that I install on my own web site (my host supports php and MySQL and I use Mantis this way for bug tracking).

At the moment I work in two places and use the excellent Knowledge Base by OzmoSys (www.ozmosys.net.au/) - the only drawback being that I need to remember to add/edit code clips on both PCs.

Cheerio
Mike

Why not install something like a pastebin.com on your web space? It's open source. Here's the direct link to download (has installation instructions inside): http://pastebin.com/pastebin.tar.gz

i'd suggest creating a free subversion repository online and checking out a copy on any machine. I realize this is not what you asked but it's better integrated and more secure / convenient, imho.

I really like http://snipplr.com/ as alternative to pastebin :) - the only drawback: no download version, so you couldn't host it for yourself
