First of all, I want to thank everyone on the forum for their help as I’ve learned Elixir. This is such an awesome community and I’m grateful for it.
I want to share a project I’ve been working on. slickbit, the social code snippet manager. Of course, its 100% built using Elixir, Phoenix, and Postgres.
slickbit is a full featured code snippet manager offering:
- Cloud storage
- Private snippets
- Unlisted snippets
- Full text search
I’m planning on implementing
- IDE and text editor plugins
- Variable injection
- History commit messages
- Offline sync
- Integrations (Google Drive, GitHub)
- Offline exporting
I also wanted to add a social aspect, so there is a simple voting and commenting system for public snippets! I hope this can help provide a community based moderating system for finding quality code snippets.
Why another code snippet manager?
When looking for a code snippet manager, I found many of them to be too expensive (~$100/year) or lacking the features I wanted like strong social and sharing features. I hope slickbit can become a place where we can focus solutions instead of problems while preserving public discourse and feedback.

Thanks for reading! Once again, thanks everyone for your positive impact on the Elixir community. I’m looking forward to getting some feedback on this project. If anyone has specific questions about implementation I would love to entertain them.
