Trusted by the world's best developers

Our Zen-Mode Desktop App

Optimized for Code Snippets. Fast with Shortcuts.

STANDALONE DESKTOP APP

Saving snippets made simple

Code snippets, screenshots, architecture diagrams, text notes, code files and more. It all works with Pieces.

Just paste code or drag & drop an image and let Pieces do the rest. No dropdowns, no menus, no extra effort.

So easy to save

Code snippets, scratch files,  screenshots, UML diagrams, links and more. Paste something from your clipboard, drag & drop, or save to Pieces via our plugins.

Pieces uses on-device ML to automatically recognize and enrich developer specific materials.

Automatic Text vs. Code Differentiation

Today, when you paste code into note apps like Google Docs, Notion, Evernote, Obsidian, etc., they all treat it as plain text... but it’s code!

Pieces analyzes pasted text to automatically distinguish a Text Note from a Code Snippet.

Instant language detection & smart syntax highlights

When Pieces determines that you just pasted a Text Note or a Code Snippet, it begins a material-specific enrichment process.

In the case of a Code Snippet, Pieces will automatically classify and syntax highlight over 50 programming languages.

This all happens in less than 200ms and completely offline.

AI-Generated titles, tags and smart descriptions

Pieces automatically adds tags such as “HTTP Request” or “Flutter Framework” and further, generates descriptions of your Code Snippet.

Pieces intelligently associates URLs and Related People, i.e. Git Branches & Pull Requests, StackOverflow Posts, Source File & Project Paths, Authors, Collaborators, Social Profiles, and Emails

Pieces can even detect & extract Sensitive Information such as API Keys, Passwords, Server-Side Secrets.

Useful context. Attached automatically.

A code snippet is significantly more valuable with context attached, such as where it  came from, where it’s been used or  who has collaborated on it.

When you save code to Pieces, it intelligently associates URLs and related people. including Git Branches and pull requests, StackOverflow posts, source file and project paths, authors, collaborators, social profiles, emails and so much more.

Smart Warnings and Sensitive Information Detection.

Some of the most commonly saved snippets are Powershell and Command Line instructions, boilerplate for unit tests, .env variables, HTTP requests and CI/CD build configs. All of these often contain sensitive data like API keys, auth tokens, usernames, passwords or service account credentials.

Pieces facilitates security and programming best practices by detecting sensitive information and warning against accidental uploads or sharing.

Seriously Ambitious & First-In-Kind.

Pieces is the most intelligent and helpful code snippet platform on Earth.

Proactive Save & Pattern Engine

Pieces picks up on code patterns as you work and recognizes snippets that you’re frequently reusing. From there, if you don’t have similar snippets saved, Pieces automatically saves these reusable snippets for you.

Offline Deep Search

Pieces ships with a first-in-kind TLP Query Engine built to efficiently run entirely on-device. Search results rank on a blend of code similarity, recent activity, tags, descriptions, people, related links and more.

Atomic Auto-Complete

Auto-complete saved snippets from Pieces directly into your IDE. Our approach is very complimentary to existing auto-complete systems as the snippets you save are often hyper-specific to your tooling, projects, and code style.

@ Qonto

"I use Pieces because of its ability to optimize my workflow. It automatically grabs metadata and attaches it to my snippet when I save it to my Pieces app. This makes it easier to find and reuse later."
