Dear All,

I've been experimenting lately with the idea of user customizable code
fragments that can be copy and pasted into code in order to speed up

You can define a template that specifies a set of information to be captured
from a user (such as text boxes for names, and checkboxes and radio buttons
to select sub-sections of a template) and then generate a snippet of code
that can be pasted into a program.

While not restricted to XML Schema, I've created some templates to support
writing schemas using a text editor (such as Visual Studio etc.).  XSD seems
a good candidate for this as it is often quite verbose and it's not always
easy (for me!) to remember the order in which various elements go.

I would like to invite you to download Code Scrapbook and see whether it
helps improve your coding productivity.  Naturally you're welcome you edit
the templates, or add your own, possibly even for things like XSLT or
Java/C# etc.  I may even be able to role them back into the main build.

I've already got some ideas for how to improve it from doing the XSD
templates, but if you have any suggestions I'd be delighted to hear from
you.  And if you find it doesn't really work for you for some reason that
would be interesting to hear also.

You can download it (for free obviously!) from:


Thanks and enjoy,
