Reviews and customer testimonials

quoteThe Scripter's Scrapbook has a long history as an indispensable tool for keeping track of all the tidbits of code you accumulate over the years. The latest edition is jam-packed with features, and useful to scripters and programmers of almost every type on every platform. ~ Geoff Canyon,
quoteThis is one of those utilities that deserves a permanent place among your development tools. The fact that it is so universal makes it all the more useful. ~ Scott Rossi, Tactile Media
quoteAs a programmer who works in multiple languages, I have never seen or used a better tool than Scripter's Scrapbook to coordinate code, wisdom, insight, advice and documentation. It's become a key part of my programming toolbox. ~ Dan Shafer, best seller author
quoteDamned if I wasn't impressed with the nearly unbelievable range of features they've built into it. There's hardly a thing you could ask for in a script repository that isn't in the latest version. And best of all the UI makes good use of progressive disclosure so that while there is an amazing breadth of features they're not all in your face at once. Well done. ~ Richard Gaskin, Rev professional
quoteScripter's Scrapbook Rocks! I have used a number of code organizers in the past, but they usually are specific to a particular language or environment. Scripter's Scrapbook allows you to manage code across any number of languages you specify, in addition to other "scrapbook"-like information you need to keep handy (web links, articles, etc.) and since you can embed files within Scripter's Scrapbook, you can easily manage external libraries, plugins, etc. and move them seamlessly from one place to another since everything's encapsulated in a single file. Additionally there is a new publish/subscribe section that lets you make your code snippets public for others to retrieve into their copy of Scripter's Scrapbook (and vice-versa). All in all, an awesome product! ~ Ken Ray, Rev professional
quoteMy compliments on a 'slick as a whistle' upgrade procedure and superb supporting documentation. More upgrades should follow your example and we users would have a lot easier life. ~ Ralph R. Forehand,
