Git-Related Docs and Tools

Some documenation related to varioous git repositories, tools and services.

Getting Started with Cacher

Use snippets to quickly recall commands

Snippets are the most useful when you want to re-use a shell 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"

Use snippets for customer service

Engineers are often second-line customer agents. Use Cacher to store snippets for performing common support tasks.

Labels are your friend

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.

Create or join a team to share knowledge

Teams allow you and your colleagues to build a shared knowledge base. Use Markdown to write beautifully formatted documentation. (This snippet itself is a Markdown file.)

Use snippets for onboarding new team members

Let's face it. Having the new engineer decipher a 500 thousand-line codebase might not be an efficient use of her time. Use snippets as examples to help new members get up to speed fast.
