Source code

As of release v4.13.2 CodeSnip's source code is maintained in a Git repository on GitHub.

Before release v4.13.2, CodeSnip's source code was stored in a Subversion repository on SourceForge. Much of the history of CodeSnip was retained when converting from Subversion to Git, but details of changes in deleted branches was lost. Therefore to see the full history prior to release v4.13.2 the old Subversion reposiory has been retained, but is no longer being updated.

See CodeSnip's Compiling & Source Code FAQ for answers to some common questions about building CodeSnip and re-using the source code.

Some third party source code is required to build CodeSnip. These dependencies, along with instructions for building codesnip are provided in the file Build.html which is included in the code repository. The link above takes you to the file included in the latest stable release on GitHub. Older versions of Build.html, back as far are included in the software downloads of all versions as far back as v3.1 that are all available from the project's SourceForge Files page.

There are several ways of accessing CodeSnip's source code:

  • From the Git repository on GitHub.
    For a description of the repository structure, and information on how to checkout code, see the Source Code section of README.md on GitHub.
  • From SourceForge
    Source code going back to v3.0 is available from SourceForge via the file browser . Choose the directory with the required version number. Source files have names beginning codesnip-src.
