Snappy the CodeSnapIt Hashtag Turtle CodeSnapIt Build Status

Share snap shots of your beautiful code! See the live application here!

Overview

CodeSnapIt was inspired by the inability to share syntax-highlighted code across social media without taking screenshots and jumping through hoops. Currently, CodeSnapIt is a fully self-contained social media site for sharing code, commenting and liking on that code, and following users.

The Lifecycle of a SnapIt

SnapIt creation involves communicating with a separate application Browserazzi built with Node.js. SnapIt creation can be broken down into these steps:

  1. Editor requests screenshot via AJAX
  2. Temp SnapIt is saved in the database
  3. After temp SnapIt save a call is mode to the screenshot API
  4. API visits temp SnapIt page and takes screenshot
  5. Screenshot AJAX request returns and temp SnapIt is sent to preview
  6. SnapIt is created from accepted preview
  7. Final SnapIt saved in cloud and database
