Lotusphere 2012 BP109 Slides: Apps, Apps, and More Apps: Meet the Very Best Open Source Apps from OpenNTF – The 2012 Edition
Last week OpenNTF introduced the XSnippets code sharing beta. XSnippets allows developers to share “code snippets” quickly and easily. XSnippets is replacing the original OpenNTF “Code Bin” that served the community for many years. Once the XSnippets beta is over the template will be made available as open source on OpenTF.
XSnippets was developed by IBM’s Niklas Heidloff, developi’s Serdar Basegmez and e-Office’s Frank van der Linden and myself. We began the XSnippets project back in September and used LotusLive to coordinate project activities and the OpenNTF SVN server for source control management. Recently Rene Winkelmeyer joined the development team. Rene will be creating an Eclipse plugin and associated server-side code to surface XSnippets in Domino Designer.
XSnippets includes the following features:
- Source code highlighting
- Viewing snippets by language
- A list of popular snippets
- Recently added snippets
- Snippets by author
Please visit the XSnippets site (http://openntf.org/xsnippets) and contribute some of your code snippets. While you are there feel free to browse the snippets added by others.
