Tinkerwell Snippets

You can save code snippets that you use regular in the Tinkerwell app or put them in your version control system within your project to share them with others. This allows you to reuse a piece of code that often changes or that holds a function that doesn't need a UI for a non-technical user.

We use them all the time to solve specific tasks in our licensing portal or to create fluent reports that change very time when we run them.

You can simply save a snippet, add a label and it even remembers in which project you created it. When you want to run a snippet, you can do this via the snippet browser or simply search for it in the command palette.

The snippets make use of labels and can open local projects or connect to remote servers via SSH automatically.

Shared snippets

Sometimes it either makes sense to share a snippet with your team or to simply store it in the project itself. You can do that in a .tinkerwell/snippets folder in the project and Tinkerwell automatically loads these snippets when you connect to a project.

“The ability to SSH directly into a server and run diagnostics directly from Tinkerwell is insanely amazing! Can't imagine doing development without it at this point.”

“I would say Tinkerwell is my second Terminal. I uses it to quickly browse data, test out functions and more. I especially like the isolated, but automated way it interprets my code.”
