Code Notes, an open source code snippet manager to increase our productivity! 🚀
Who has never been copying paste a piece of code in a simple notebook? Built with Electron & Vue.js, Code Notes is the open source & free solution to easily organize and find your snippets & Github gists!
Today, through this article, I would like to show its features and since it's my first open source project with already 800+ stars on GitHub and it's now 1 year old, I think it's the right time! 😀
What is Code Notes? 💻
Code Notes is a software with a lot of features allowing us to increase our productivity everyday. Firstly, let me introduce them with a video!
Create & update your snippets easily 😎
As you can see, it's pretty easy to save snippets and retrieve them later! You just have to select a name, a description, some tags to retrieve them easily, add your note by selecting its language and click create! 👌
Synchronize & manage your GitHub Gists 🎉
After a lot of requests from the community, since the last version of Code Notes, you have the possibility to synchronize your GitHub gists (secret or public) directly from Code Notes. By simply giving the access token, you are ready to find your Gists on the application, modify them or create new ones!
Create & update several snippets in 1 note 📝
In february 2018, when Code Notes was launched, many developers asked me if it was possible to group several snippets in one note. This idea was great and I implemented it directly!
Big comfort & linting 😍
If there is anything nice in Code Notes, it's this way of writing these notes as if we were in an IDE. Thanks to brace, you benefit from linting and an irreproachable writing comfort!
Retrieve them quickly 🏎
You can find your notes easily by searching on their names, description, tags or languages!
Copy to clipboard 📎
Of course, in order to prevent you from selecting all your snippet, a small button "copy to clipboard" is there for you next to your snippet's name 👋
A worldwide project 🌎
Code Notes in a few numbers? It's more than 6,500 unique users in one year, coming from the 4 corners of the planet! (1,300 from France, 1,100 from United States & 300 from China). Thank you so much!
Download it, it's multi-platform & completely free 🎁
To download it, just go to our download section and follow the instructions for your platform!
