TextSnippets is a folksonomy for codes…ie. mark-up stuff for your web pages.
This is a great idea for people to discover hacks and codes to add to their blog templates, also a good place to keep old codes, when you replace your blog with new codes, just in case the new code doesn’t work out.
All-in-all it’s just a great place to store all your code-text bits, and of course discover new stuff.
I like the idea of trading codes, get some help on enhancements, can also act as a one stop help desk from the Web2.0 community, by asking a question in your post…I’m often after some code or how to alter some code, this could be a good place for a lot of the right people (capable coders) to see your requests.
If you goto the home page you will see the Top Tags, also the body of the homepage has the most recent entries, if you don’t like scrolling you can go straight to an entry by using the drop-down menu…see earlier or later entries by clicking on the page links.
Great thing is that each post has a permalink and people can leave comments on your posts, so in essence it is a blog-based folksonomy.
When you write a post, just write some text (just like blogging)…when you incase some of that text between the code mark-up tags eg.
<code>...</code> it will be displayed in a special text box.
There are RSS feeds for main pages, every tag, every user…not sure about user tags
…also not sure how you are notified if someone leaves a comment on one of your posts.
It needs my user name on the home page so I can see my account in one easy click.
Peter Cooper from FeedDigest seems to be the developer.
Can’t wait to see more blog-based folksonomies, it’s great that you can have a blog within a sharing system like a folksonomy…what makes this different from usual folksonomies is that each post has a permalink and your post can simply be just text…also the availability of comments, all that’s left are trackbacks.
This blog-based folksonomy is specifically for code content, when will we see one just for any type of content or topic.
