massCode - a free and open source code snippets manager for developers.

Hello, everyone!

It'll be a short post. I'd like to start the New Year with another open source project. This time it will be a code snippets manager for developers.


I was inspired by applications like SnippetsLab, Quiver, Boostnote.

SnippetsLab & Quiver are native MacOS applications. Boostnote is a cross platform application because it is written using Electron. Inside Boostnote, it uses React.

The goal of creating this application was mostly my own growth as a developer. Also, I wanted this project to absorb the best of such applications already on the market (both…

I am using it more as a markdown note keeper for work tasks and infos (missing the good development times). Simple, fast and useful tool. Do you plan to migrate to web as a SaaS?

The SaaS model involves direct monetization. Do the users of the free product need it that much?
