Sharing code snippets with team members just got a whole lot easier
Today, Assembla rolled out a new tool for quickly creating and sharing code snippets with team members. The new Snippets tool supports a variety of languages, provides syntax highlighting, and allows team members to comment and interact with the snippets.
While there are many snippets-type tools out there, we wanted to provide a quick way for team members to share and interact with code snippets securely from within the Assembla ecosystem. The new tool is fully integrated into Assembla’s stream, email notifications, and search just like all other tools.
To install the snippets tool, visit the Admin tab of your project > click on the Tools section > scroll to the bottom of the page and click ‘Add’ next to the Snippets tool. Now all team members can quickly create snippets and share the snippet urls in tickets, wiki pages, messages, or external communication such as email or IM.
We hope you enjoy this tool as much as our team has been. Let us know what you think in the comments.
