Easily Embed GitHub Gists into Issues

Not only does Snowy support Github commit integration, we now allow you paste in a web address for a Gist and we’ll automatically embed it for you!

It’s that easy.

 

Want a Free Starter Account? Submit Your API Examples

One of the coolest features is our remote error-logging API, which allows any application to send error logs to your Snowy account. Snowy records these errors as issues, allowing you to track them to full resolution. We use this feature in almost all of our products and it’s made a world of difference. This feature is available for Starter and higher accounts.

However, the example Snowy Evening API code on GitHub only has our PHP example. We’re giving away a completely free Starter account ($348/year value) to any developer that submits a similar example and/or library in any other programming language.

To enter:

  1. Read our simple error log api documentation.
  2. Fork the repository from Github.
  3. Submit your example code and any needed libraries or instructions on requirements that can’t be provided.
  4. Send us a pull request so we can see the work in progress. Include your Snowy username in your notes and we’ll upgrade your account.
  5. Once upgraded, go ahead and test your code. You’ll see it logging errors to your project.
  6. When the test works comment on the pull request or email us at [email protected] We’ll merge the code.

If we approve and merge your code into our repository, your Start account is free for good. Keep it. We won’t ever convert you to a paid account unless you upgrade.

We’re pretty open but we know we need examples for all of the following languages. We will mark every language below when we have submissions so you don’t duplicate anything.

  • Ruby
  • Objective-C
  • Java
  • Javascript (NodeJS compatible)
  • Python
  • C
  • Perl
  • ASP.NET

Good luck!

Announcing Snowy Evening - Bug and Issue Tracking for Clients & Developers

Snowy Evening is now officially open for new users. We have several excellent plans for you to choose from (including free) and if you need us to import your bugs or issues from another service please email us ([email protected]).

It’s been a long journey to get here but we’re so excited to see you all begin using Snowy. We’ve had some excellent advice and feedback from all of our beta testers. I’d especially like to thank Cameron Moll, Ben Bodien, and the rest of the Authentic Jobs crew for doing such a thorough job of beta testing. We’re pleased they found it so useful.

GitHub has been one of my favorite services - I’ve been a loyal customer for three years now. I’m happy to announce that Snowy Evening has GitHub integration built in.

We also support embedded jsFiddle scripts. It’s used in so many bug reports these days that it makes sense to simply embed the test instead of linking to it.

These and so many more features make Snowy the best issue tracking application available.

As a reminder to our beta customers, you’re accounts will remain free of charge in return for your assistance.

Thank you all!

Michael
