Try WebSharper: snippet versioning, gist import, and other enhancements now availableCore team

A new Try WebSharper is out adding a couple handy new features and addressing a couple annoyances, making it even more easy to publish your F# and WebSharper snippets. The picture below depicts the main areas of change:

  1. Creating snippets from GitHub gists - You can now easily import a gist, all you have to do is hover over the (+) button in the bottom right corner, hit the GitHub icon and give your gist URL.

  2. Versioning snippets - You can now track different versions of and updates to any given snippet by switching stepping back and forth using the < and > arrows in the main menu. By default, when you visit a snippet you see its latest version, unless the URL includes the exact version (0 being the oldest), such as http://try.websharper.com/snippet/adam.granicz/00002I/1.

  3. Proper indentation support - You may have noticed earlier that highlighting a block of text and hitting Tab or Shift+Tab doesn't exactly behave in a friendly manner: it wipes the selected text instead of indenting. This is now fixed and you get the usual indentation behaviour you'd expect.

  4. Easy embed links - If you need to embed a snippet or "run" it outside of Try WebSharper, you can now easily get those links by following the direct links on the Embed tab.

Happy sharing!
