Most web designers and developers are familiar with the problem: Over the years you discover a lot of good and useful scripts and code snippets that you wish to save for later. And other times, you just need a little aid to learn a new programming language, rarely used codes, templates for code processes, and more.
mycodestock.com is a simple and intuitive service for web designers and developers to store and manage code snippets safely and easily.
With mycodestock.com you can collect codes and snippets privately but also share them. mycodestock.com’s main objective is to supports the administration and storage of larger collections.
Code snippets can be categorized into folders and tagged with keywords. That allows for quick retrieval, plus a full-text search feature is also available.
The editor also supports code entry. For example, simple autocompletion and live syntax checks are available. If the editor detects, for example, invalid or unclean code during code entry, a warning gets issued. Depending on the error, the editor will suggest improvements to clean up the code.
The default settings on mycodestock.com primarily support the creation of private snippet collections— by default each snippet is private. Since private content is particularly worth protecting, the security has been a major consideration throughout development.

A simple comment system with live updates enables fast communication and discussion among users. In addition to folder sharing, you can also share snippets publicly via links. You can also integrate your snippets into a website via an embed code. Thanks to a simple API, it is easy to adapt the embed code to your own website.
