Snippets are short examples of working code. CoCalc offers curated, annotated snippets with Jupyter Notebooks and Sage Worksheets. They can save you time when you’re learning a new programming technique or need a reminder how to do something. CoCalc offers code snippets in many programming languages, including Python, R, Sage, Bash, Julia, Octave, and GAP.
You can browse categories and titles, and search for keywords.
With one click, you can insert a code snippet with accompanying description, right where you are in your document. After that, you are ready to inspect and modify the inserted code.
If you have a snippet you’d like to contribute, click
Contribute at lower left in the Snippets pane and you will be taken to the
CoCalc Snippets source code repository on GitHub.
Note: Snippets first appeared in CoCalc under the name “Assistant” and were announced in this blog article: Examples Assistant.
