Show IH: Snipline - Shell-command organiser


I've been lurking IH for a while now and it's helped inspire me to create my own side project. It's now at a point where I'm happy to present it!

Snipline is a tool for developers to save and copy shell-commands as efficiently as possible.

Context: I have to work on many servers/environments and I often find myself searching for the same commands and then modifying them for the environment I'm working on. I wanted a more efficient way to do this and ended up building Snipline.

I dogfooded the app for several months and then had some coworkers and friends test it (and help with the design). Once I was happy with the product I worked on integrating subscriptions using Laravel Spark. I've decided on making it a SaaS to help cover server costs and further development.

I'd be really happy to hear any feedback on the site and what could be done to better sell the product.

    This could be really useful for devops engineers working at agencies.

      Thanks! Yeah, this is how I came up with the idea 🙂. I work at a web agency and we have to configure and maintain lots of servers.
