Codever snippets VSCode Extension

I've been using Visual Studio Code for some projects lately, so I made it easy now to save and search code snippets on Codever directly from Visual Studio Code via the Codever Snippets VSCode Extension.

You can see it in action in the following demos.

Save snippet

Select snippet, then right click or Ctrl+Shift+P (Cmd+Shift+P on Mac) and select Save snippet to Codever:

@ama the extension looks pretty interesting. People were bound to editor specific snippet libraries. I think there were few paid snippet managers. But this looks kind of interesting.
I've one question though,
Will it goto website for every query? Or is it synced locally?

For the initial release it goes to the website for every query. For now I look it at as bookmarking own validated "recipes" to go back to later. In future releases, would be nice to sync with the website and maybe "suggest" more based on the context (but there are other tools for that, like the new Copilot from Github). Thanks for your input πŸ™
