It will be a living documentation and is still not finished, but we’re happy that we have released the first version. If you miss anything specific, please reach out to us via chat.

A new gradient picker has landed on snappify! 🥳

Lock and Hide elements for a better editing experience on the canvas.
Lock: When an element is locked it becomes not selectable on the canvas so you can’t move it unintentionally.
Hide: When an element is hidden it disappears completely from the canvas. This also means snapping guidelines won’t be applied to this element.
However, in both case, you’ll be able to select the element still on the elements list (left toolbar) and change the properties of the element as usual
 

 

🙌 17th August 2022

Various new form elements are now supported! 🥳
Now you can add ellipse (circle), rectangle, and different types of polygon elements to your snaps.
As you can see in the screenshot above, you can also use it for more sophisticated code annotations.

The first form element - the ellipse - hast just landed in snappify 🤩
Form elements help you to style your snaps in an even more unique way and we want to add more variants in the upcoming weeks!
Hint: press Shift while resizing an ellipse element to create circles.
 

 
notion image
We introduced “automatically generated folders”.
Every time a snap gets generated via the API or the VS Code Extension, it will be stored in the corresponding folder, so those snaps don’t pollute your Root folder anymore. 😄
Of course you can just move the snaps into any other folder afterwards!
 

 

🕹️ 9th August 2022

New tilting functionality is here 🤩
Now you can tilt the code-editor, rich-text, profile-info and custom image elements. So you can present your snap in an even cooler way 😎. Just play with the control (2) - you will love it.
In case you already know the exact tilting degree, you can activate the manual editing mode where you can put the values into the input fields.

Upload Images from the Clipboard

It’s now possible to upload an image directly from your clipboard. When you have an image in your clipboard and you’re on the snappify Editor, just paste it and it will be uploaded so you can use it right away.

Copy & Paste Elements in the Editor

Another clipboard improvement is that you can now copy & paste the selected elements in the snappify Editor.
Just select the element(s) you want to copy, pess CTRL / CMD + C to copy and then CTRL / CMD + V to paste them again.
This even works across different snaps! So when you have a special group of elements you want to reuse in different snaps, just copy and paste them onto a new snap 🥳

We’ve also prepared a video where you can get a better overview about those new features:

Embed your snaps via an iframe

We’re proud to tell you that Pro users are now able to embed their snaps via an iframe.
That means you’re now able to embed an interactive version of your snap into your own website / blog! Additionally users can easily copy the code with a new “Copy” button which is visible when hovering over a snippet.

Our next goal is to make snaps easily embeddable into blogging platforms like Medium, dev(.).to or Hashnode 😎

Closed Beta for the snappify API

We’re also excited to tell you that we launched a closed Beta for the new snappify API! It’s a REST API which takes some configuration parameters and returns a beautifully styled image of your code snippet, like you’re used to from the snappify Editor.

We’re still looking for testers, so if you’re interested in giving it a try, pls just write a DM to Dominik and he will send you the instructions.

snappify is live on ProductHunt 🥳

 
About a year ago we started developing snappify and our goal was to build a tool that makes it easy to create beautiful code snippets, while also provide our users a powerful editor which helps them to annotate and explain their snippets.
 
We are confident that snappify has grown to be a very helpful tool for developers around the world and therefore it's time to make more people aware of it via ProductHunt. 🙌
 
Your support definitely makes the difference and we'd be super happy if you check it out on ProductHunt and leave your feedback. 😻

Code Highlightings

Another feature we’re happy to release is Code Highlights.
You can now either “Washout” parts of your code to either blur them or gray them out. This can be helpful if the viewer should focus on specific parts of the code.
Additionally it’s now also possible to show lines as Added or Removed which can be used to emphasize changes in a code snippet.
