How does it work?

CodeDemo works by monitoring all keystrokes, while it is running, by hooking into Windows® message pump using Windows® API. When you type the Id of the snippet you want to paste followed by the TAB key, CodeDemo replaces the id you just typed by the corresponding snippet.

Using CodeDemo is easy:

  • Collect your snippets in a text file. Make sure the snippets are separated from each other by 3 or more blank lines.
  • Open this text file in CodeDemo.
  • In your IDE, type the id of the snippet followed by TAB key.

It even works with browser based/cloud IDEs like Cloud9 and CodeRun. *It works with any IDE in which you can paste text using CTRL+V keyboard combination.

Focus on your presentation

No more switching back and forth between notepad and your IDE to cut and paste snippets while doing your presentation. With CodeDemo, you are free to focus on your presentation in your IDE instead of worrying about copying and pasting code snippets. CodeDemo will quietly paste your snippet at your current cursor position on your command.

No export/import of snippets

Tired of exporting/importing code snippets in Visual Studio? CodeDemo will make your snippets available in any IDE, including Visual Studio, without making any changes to your IDE.
