I wanted to write a quick post to update you all on what’s been going on with Snipplr.
First, thank you for your feedback on the new design, both positive and negative. It’s hard to be all things to all people, but we’re going to give it our best shot. Trey is busy working on an alternate style that is more minimalistic, smaller, and has more room to view code. We’d love to give you more control over your preferred interface. In the meantime, I’ve made some small changes to the interface – like making the code editing block more suitable for code on both the new and edit snippet pages.
Aside from the design, I’ve been working to make some system changes:
- Search. Searching now works more like how you would expect. I’ve also added an advanced search, which allows you to search source code and filter by language.
- Languages. I added some new languages that were requested and also upgraded GeSHI (for syntax highlighting) to the latest version.
- Spam. I replaced the math captcha for new user registration with reCAPTCHA and haven’t seen any spam bots try to create an account since.
- Details. There are lots more minor changes and fixes around the site on both the front and back end. As always, please contact us with any bugs or suggestions you have.
We have lots of more ideas and things in the works, so keep checking back here for the latest news.
