Its Free, We have worked really hard to get this off the ground, there may be some bugs but please take a look and get registered.
Xippets is a code repository designed for Xojo developers to submit, copy, discuss and improve code snippets for Xojo. It is not designed as a forum although you can comment on others code.
It needs your input, your code snippets and your ideas for where it goes from here. Please contribute and comment, this has taken some 5 months to get to this stage. Please let me know of any bugs you find, they will exist.
Looks great. I’m curious, did you consider using Xojo to do the site?
Yes, lots of others asked that question at development stage. The reason I didn’t was really simple, I don’t have a web license only a desktop one, and stick to what you know, I knew the tools I was working with for web development whereas Ive not used Xojo WE so there would have been the learning curve there. I was struggling to offer the time to XIppets I wanted to anyway so learning a new tool wasn’t an option.
That isn’t to say I wouldn’t move over to WE in the future.
I was wondering is there a feature on xippets that allows users to opt in to receiving emails as new xippets are added? I think it be cool to be alerted when new code is available. But not all users would like it so there would have to be a way to opt out.
It’s very nice.
There is ont thing that I find a bit awkward.
The view button is just above the rating system.
I’ve had a few times, when browsing on my iPad, that I accidentally rated a snippet while I was aiming for the View button.
