Software to manage code snippets

If you’re a professional developer or even if programming is a hobby for you, having some software to manage the bits of code you use regularly can be very time saving. I’d hate to know how much time I’ve wasted through having to find a code snippet I’ve used before that I know is on the internet somewhere! If only I’d have saved the code somewhere last time I used it.

In this post I’m going to cover some free and premium programs you can use to manage your code snippets to save you time in the future. This is quite a long post because there are a lot of options for this kind of software, I’ve tried to cover as many as I can. If you think I’ve missed a good one or if you just want to add your input on which ones you like best and why you can do so in the comments after the article. Maybe I’ll do an in depth look at the most popular ones in another article.

Cross Platform

These are platform independent apps which means they can be installed on Windows, Mac or Linux. Very handy if you want to use the same programs on a few different operating systems.
