Friendsnippets is back

Friendsnippets is back since 7 hours now. Update took more time since some tests failed when we put online the version. It is only a maintenance upgrade of the engine. Currently friendsnippets run on last django trunk and use the last version of django-authopenid .

Everything is ok now. We have planned another update of friendsnippets around the end of the year. This will be a major upgrade with new services and a complete rewrite of some part of the engine. You will see ;)

See you next time and merry christmas :)

friendsnippets and openid

Hi all,

Long time we posted here. We are working hard to provide you a new version of friendsnippets with new features and some interface improvements :)

No status for now ;) But our current wok allowed us to rewrite a little the django application used for openid authentification. Since it could be interesting for anyone who want to play with openid on django we decided to opensource it.

You could find it here :

It's under Apache License 2.0 .

Any feedback appreciated ;)

Google Code Search and Friendsnippets

Major upgrade this morning on Friendsnippets. You can now use Google Code Search inside Friendsnippets . Search your snippets and add it if you want to your snippets. It's always more easy to find code and share it.

How it works ?
Go in searchbar , type your search , select "google search code" as search type and that's it. You are redirected on a page that display results. Save any snippet you want by clicking on save it link. Easy isn't it ? ;)

With this update, there are also other enhancements :
- You could now know when someone shared with you a snippet. Check it on the menubar.
- subscriptions pages display only unique snippets.
- Put your name and a lik to your homepage on your page. Now the world can join you ;) Fo in settings/edit to configure them.

Enjoy and please let us know if you find bug :)

- Benoît
