Code library

What do you guys use to store your code snippets? Ive got loads of CSS, jQuery, PHP, c# and vb.net snippets that I really want to start organising. Instead of writing something I thought Id ask what other people use?

I would love to use something online instead of something installed locally on my pc.

Any suggestions?

I use Evernote for snippets. It works pretty well and has a client-side application if you want to run it on your PC, or you can access it from the web, so it's pretty easy to access your snippets from anywhere.

I keep all my files for all my sites on my computers and just get the 'snippets' from the source when I need something.  This has the advantage of being stored in a working page that I can use to verify my 'new' code against.

Here are a few options which I've used. These days I put pretty much everything in git ( specifically Bitbucket because it has free private repositories ).

Evernote:
Accessible everywhere via the cloud.
Bad UI ( my opinion ).

OneNote:
It's like Evernote but it has more features and is easier to organize.

Google Docs:
Can be edited by multiple people if desired.
Has offline access if you're using Chrome.

Dropbox:
Has filesystem syncing.
Has offline access.

Git:
Accessible everywhere via command line or browser.
Has revision control.
Has diff compare.
Has syntax highlighting in the browser.
I was already using git anyways for revision control during development.
The downside is that it doesn't store as many types of things, it's mostly meant for code.
You can't easily compose new code in the browser.

Git on GitHub.  PHPStorm as an IDE - has a slick interface to Github repos.  Use Composer to organize dependencies.
