My main question for you:

1) How much development experience do you have?
2) Do you resonate with this issue?
3) If you're an experienced developer who does NOT relate to this issue as a whole, do you relate to the following section ONLY?
You need to be able to search the hard parts
There is always that code snippet that you can never remember. You need a system that allows you to learn, capture, and find it, painlessly.
Thanks to all the fellow fast-laners who offer feedback/insight :)

~8 years in web development

Yes, there are several snippets for me. Skeletons for html document and skeleton for reactjs component.

I can probably write them from my memory but i would always miss some stuff that i have to add later. So it's good to have everything i need right from the beginning

I’ve been doing web development for roughly 10 years.

There’s always something that you need to reference, but its very easy to find what you need.

10+ years in web development.

I think most of the software developers have times when they don't remember exactly a snippet of code, but they know it's a google search away - I wouldn't call it necessary a system, it's more like the experience dictating you what to search exactly.

I have combined 8+ years development experience, focusing on Android past 6years. I resonate with the issue and I have tried a number of homegrown journaling system to catalog code snippets, now I use Github gists and reliance on Stackoverflow to reference code snippets.

15+ years Software Engineering.
I usually consult my most recent projects, or just google what I am looking for.
I have found that knowing the right terminology is more important than snippets.
I remember having to google "lua string concatenation operator" a few years ago. I got exactly what I wanted. If I had asked for "lua how to add words", I would not have gotten much success, even though we learn in many language strings are for words, and usually it is the + symbol to combine them.

While this is not a problem for me, it might be of more use to junior programmers. Appeal to their emotions.

101 snippets you should have handy to cut your development time in half. Bob's snippet emporium will get you out of the office in time for happy hour. You will be the envy of your coworkers. Your productivity will skyrocket your career to new heights!

Thank you all for the insight!

@Val Okafor , I've tried a couple solutions as well for code snippets, nothing that I've found has worked yet. If you're interested in having your thoughts/ideas included in whatever I decide to build, please take a look at the email form at the bottom of the link. If you'd rather watch and keep an eye out, I have a progress thread in Insiders.

Thanks to everyone else who's given me some great insight into the mindset of experienced / senior devs!

XX years of experience here.

My past projects are the best snippets collector. Moreover are not only my snippets but also other developer's snippets.
