Storing snippet code for easy access

At the moment I am trying out Evernote to store all the code I use for my web site. I was wondering if there is a more practical way so that I can access my code quickly if need be while working on my web sites.

If not, I think it would be a great idea for the Yola gurus to add a built in code/note snippet tool so that we can always have quick access to it.

Hi Randy,

 

I just use NotePad or TextEdit and save into my folder my desktop. Do you have an example of a site that has a built-in code/note snippet tool? I'm interested to see how this works.

Hi Sanja!

I don't have an example of a site thatusrs this. I keep my code in textwrangler on my mac and now in Evermote so I can see my code and work on it from wherever I am. What would be meet if Yola had it's own way of storing the code or notes for easy access while wiling on a site.

I guess that one way would be to creat a page with a text widget just to store notes nd code. But ideally if there was a way of accessing from a drop down menu the code or whatever you need.

When I was working with Rapidweaver on the Mac, they had a way for you to access all your snippets of code while working on your web siteit was great. Something like this for Yola would be very helpful.

Here are a couple of screenshots of the snippet manager in Rapidweaver. Something like this in Yola would be a create help to all Yola coders because you have quick access to all your code while working on your web project. This shouldn't be too hard to implement?

Thanks for sharing this Randy. It does look like a neat feature. I'm not sure if we will implement something like this but I'll be happy to pass along the idea.

Thanks Sanja! I know this would really benefit people who use coding to create their web sites.

I was also thinking of something else. I notice that Yola partners up with other companies to enhance the functionality of Yola. Maybe Yola can do the same in this case. Partner up with Evernote or a similar company that offers snippet code/ note management.

When I was using Rapidweaver, I found this feature indispensable.
