Atom plugin for quickly finding and using StackOverflow code snippets.

Find and use code snippets relevant to your problem. Replace routine StackOverflow searching with a simple interface for searching and browsing the largest code snippet collection on the internet :)


  • Install Sourcerer
  • Write and select a problem description, e.g. 'fizzbuzz implementation' or 'quicksort'
  • Hit alt-s
  • View and insert relevant StackOverflow code snippets!


  • Searches stackoverflow questions using Google
  • Scrapes pages and filters accepted answers + those with a large number of votes
  • "I'm feeling lucky" mode - automatically insert the best found answer
  • Inserts StackOverflow answer text as comments (for context)
  • Automatically cites inserted snippets with the author's username
