Cacher Pro Tips

Here are a few tips to make you awesome at Cacher.

Getting Started

Snippets are the most useful when you want to re-use a command or a specific code pattern. Here are a few we have in our library:

  • "How to delete a git tag"
  • "Nginx configuration for staging server"
  • "Crash handler AWS Lambda function"

Label everything

Labels are a great way to organize your snippets. A good practice is to have one for every major product feature. We've created the first label for you - Documentation.

Share with the world

snippets.cacher.io is our community for Cacher users. Every snippet from your library has a public-facing page on the site. Check out the SHARE PAGE control at the top of this snippet to see its URL.

Join a team and spread knowledge

Teams allow you and your colleagues to build a shared knowledge base. Use Markdown to write beautifully formatted documentation.
