Xtern Software Launches Code Barrel

(Ping! Zine) – Xtern Software, Inc. has launched their new product, Code Barrel, the first private, hosted code snippet repository that will support any programming language.

Code Barrel was originally built to meet the needs of our own development team. We needed a secure way to privately store and share code snippets among our team that we could not find with other code repositories and didn’t want to have to contend with the overkill of a version control system. We’ve found that Code Barrel is one of the most efficient ways to bring a new developer up to speed.” states Keir Davis, President of Xtern Software.

Code Barrel offers users advanced search, tagging, and simple copy & paste functionality to easily find and reuse code snippets. The product will also track snippet revisions, supports commenting, and will email team members when a snippet has changed. Because it is hosted, all product updates are automatically provided to all users.

A free, Visual Studio plug-in for Code Barrel makes it very easy to incorporate it into a programmer’s workflow. An Eclipse plug-in is currently under development and will be available soon.

Product pricing starts at $4.95 per month, with the first 30 days, free. To sign up for the free trial, go http://signup.codebarrel.com.

Xtern Software Inc., based in Greensboro, NC, was founded in 2002 by Keir Davis. In addition to Code Barrel, Xtern Software provides custom development solutions for small businesses to large corporations.
