If you click the
share link on Stack Overflow you now see three options where there were once only two.
If you click the
DEV icon, you'll be brought to a DEV editor with a prefilled Stack Overflow liquid tag to make sharing questions and answers more easily within this community.
You may do so in order to share a helpful tip, enrich a tutorial, or editorialize or host a "meta" discussion about the Stack Overflow content. With a much looser format than Stack Overflow itself, feel free to have sprawling conversations.
This feature was made possible by two features recently shipped on DEV:

Announcing off-platform "Share to DEV" functionality

Let's use this functionality to help bring light to all the most important questions:
CodePen, Replit, and now Stack Overflow all have Share-to-DEV buttons. GitHub, will you be next?
Note, at the moment this is only live on the desktop version of the site, not mobile.

Congrats! Definitely a nice platform to integrate with!
Lawfully Good + Lawfully Evil => Win-win 😎
Well, I guess I need to head over to
/g/ - Technologywhatever that is.
And what's the middle one?
This is really wonderful, congratulations DEV Team!
That's a big deal.
This is so cool! 🙌 Live Share just released the ability to have a “reusable” session URL, and I wonder if it would be interesting to discuss some way that DEV posts could have an associated Live Share (e.g. it’s a help request/code review discussion/SO question, that the poster is around in real-time for a bit).
It might even be cool to have a Live Share badge that indicated the session’s online status, and let readers click it to directly join into the session. Just thinking out loud 😁
That is really cool! As it so happens, we already have the boolean concept in our codebase of whether a DEV post is "live", with this sort of thing in mind, we just gradually stopped trying to make it work because we had bigger fish to fry. So now it's just always
But we've had this sort of thing in mind and I think we'd be all for trying to make this happen. So let's figure it out.
Wohoo... DEV never stops to amaze me!
That's a nice step forward for the platform, congrats!
That is so cool! Great job, DEV Team! You've outdone yourselves once again.
I'm really happy to be a part of this community.
Good job ! 🚀
