Hi Gagandeep!

Instead of keeping my handy code snippets in my local computer, I upload it to Github.

Here's what I'm talking about!

I've created a dev cheat sheet for me and my team at work. Of course, everyone can also use it and contributions are open (but I haven't set up any rules about this yet though!)

And also, tools like Boostnote is a good candidate for note-taking code snippets for you and your team!

I use VS Code, and if I open a specific file in a different directory, VS Code lets me open that file again, in that same directory. I've been doing this for a while and it's super helpful.

Here's a gif example:

Not sure if you have found a useful tool yet.

Try our DECS decentralized application, an all-in-one workspace to manage code snippets and protect sensitive data.

Chrome extension to capture code snippets on the go.
