Makes for extremely fast pasting of code snippets and SQL queries.

The ability to add sub-snippets within an entry is something I did not realize that could be so useful. Many other similar products lack this feature.

Nice UI options that let you hide certain things, go compact, hide notes and tags etc.
Pro Option to add your own Markdown stylesheet.
Pro A lot of customization options, the menubar assistant is amazing
Easy to customize many things such as how editing, search, and the menubar app works. New theme customizations.
Pro Free and open source
Source code is available on Github.
Pro Supports a lot of languages
Pro Easy to setup
Codeit is really quick to load and pretty simple in terms of UI, so setup is a minute max. It's a web app, so it weighs nothing on your phone too.
Pro Live view
If you're editing a site and want to see how it looks, you can swipe up from the bottom edge and see it live, without any hosting, you can share these previews as well.
Codeit is available on Windows and macOS/iOS as well as Linux and Android, and looks the same on all platforms. The editor is pretty simple and you don't have to get used to new code editors every time you swap platforms.
Pro Supports 200 languages
Con Lacking support for other platforms
Con No iOs version available
Con Closed source
Con No support for placeholders in snippets
Con No gist batch support
Con You cannot create Tag Groups
Tag Groups enhance usability once a lot of tags have been collected
Con Bad gist import
Gist import data isn't adaptable. So the imported snippets could get named very ugly.
Con No multiple accounts
It would be useful to add more than one Git host account to Codeit.
