Welcome to Snippi. A super-awesome, super-simple snippet tool.
Using Snippi couldn't be any simpler, but hey, we all get stuck sometimes right? It's nothing to be ashamed of Boris. Here are some instructions.
/* -- Creating a New Snippet -- */
To create a new snippet, simply paste (or type) your code into this notepad. When creating a new snippet, "Enter or copy & paste your content here" will be displayed, you know, just to clear up any confusion.
In the sidebar (over there on the right) you can add a title for your snippet. It's totally optional. You can see on this particular snippet I've used the ingenious title "What is this Snippi thing and how do I use it?"
If you're into syntax highlighting, select a language from the drop down menu. This isn't totally right just yet and yeah we're missing a few languages but hey, we need some sleep. Plain text will be ok in the meantime, right?
Finally, if you want the snippet to expire, set a time limit from the dropdown. Once your chosen time period has been reached, the snippet will be purged from the system. Ooh-er Mrs!
Now press "Save Snippet".
/* -- Adding Comments to a Snippet -- */
For 15 mins after a snippet has been created, you can add comments to it by doing the following:
1. Click and drag over the lines of content you would like to
add a comment to.
2. When you have finished dragging, a comment box will magically
appear in the sidebar. Use this box to write something.
3. If you want to cancel your comment, hit "Cancel", otherwise
click "Save Comment" and your comment will be saved. Hurrah!
Note: You can delete a comment by clicking "Delete Comment" after it has been saved. You'll also notice I've added a comment to these lines just because I can.
/* -- Sharing Your Snippet -- */
We've saved the most difficult part until last. Copy the URL of your snippet page and give it to a buddy.
That is all.
Happy snippeting. (That's not even a word.)
