We’ve just added a cool feature to the livecode extension for Chrome: a layer with information about variables within android code snippet in StackOverflow.

It’s dead-simple:

  • Variables in the java code are links
  • Hover over a variable to get its type
  • Click a variable to find all references in the snippet



livecode var xref

Yes, all this from the browser for android code snippets in StackOverflow!

Get Codota livecode from the Chrome web store!


A new extension for Chrome, livecode by Codota, augments android code snippets within StackOverflow.

Livecode makes important Java source code elements interactive:

  • highlights calls to android APIs and shows their docs in neat bubbles
  • finds related real-world code examples from GitHub
  • warns when a deprecated API is used in the snippet




Codota livecode is available (for free) at the Chrome Web Store. It’s currently working in StackOverflow for android standard APIs.

Support for additional sites and platforms is on the way.

Try it!
