Augmented android code snippets in StackOverflow

July 16, 2013 — 1 Comment

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

Example:

 

livecode-normal

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!
