Some of you who read my articles over at http://www.codeproject.com might have seen that I have been busy working on a web based snippet tool called “CodeStash”. I recently wrote all about “CodeStash” over at http://www.codeproject.com.
“CodeStash” actually comes with a Visual Studio 2010 Addin, which was written by http://www.codeproject.com buddy Pete O’Hanlon, which integrates very nicely with Visual Studio.
We are now very pleased to say that a free hosted version of “CodeStash” is available
You can start using it at : http://www.codestash.co.uk. There is also a full PDF help document which outlines how to use “CodeStash”.
And you can download the addin from here : http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/8fd9a61e-2b3f-489b-b192-f898b2e0ee53
We will be making making changes to “CodeStash” over time to make it better. Right now the list of improvements has these things on it
- Allow users to view snippets without being logged in, and only require login for things that actually require linking to specific user (such as Add snippet/Edit snippet/Create team)
- Plugin for Eclipse
- Plugin for SharpDevelop
- Plugin for Blend
- Full Snippet support for VS2010 Addin
- Allow users to pick their own theme
- Make tooltips non animating
Anyway we hope that people start to use this free service, and if you can think of anything you think is missing, please let us know
