CodePile is a simple, powerful, collaborative code sharing hub, built for the modern coder. It is, hands-down, the most beautiful app of it's kind, with a rich and expanding feature set.
With support for syntax highlighting, code hinting and snippet completion for over 100 languages, and 2 themes to suit your preference, CodePile feels a lot like an in-browser IDE. Shared links to your code can be either static or collaborative. If you choose to enable cooperative coding, the editor supports simultaneous cursors (think Google Docs) for live updates as you code. This feature also works great as a remote technical interview "whiteboard"!
CodePile allows you to take "snapshots" of the state of the editor at any time. Snapshots can be referenced later (even directly by a simple URL parameter), and restored to the live editor if needed.
A live chat sidebar feature with a persistent history functions as both a commenting board when no one is present, or as a live conversation panel when multiple users are viewing the code together.
Benefits to creating an account on CodePile include the ability to manage your Piles in your Profile, create Bookmarks to any Pile you want, and permanently delete your own Piles. Pile owners can also turn the Read-Only mode on and off as needed to prevent/allow others to edit.
Whether you need a quick way to share your next snippet of code, or a full-featured collaborative online editor for your team, give CodePile a try today.
Future enhancements on the roadmap include Teams, @targeting users in the Chat panel, and raw (plain/text) access to Pile contents. Stay tuned and happy Piling!

The first thing I should come clean about regarding the sharing of codes is that I'm really no expert on the subject. However, i have done a fair bit of research in the last few days and one thing is certain. While it looks incredibly complicated, it seems that it's a hell of a lot easier when you have the right tools to do the job. There are plenty of code sharing apps on the market - Github, Pastebin, Pastie, Bitbucket and Google Code are the obvious ones. Some of these offer a simple cut and paste option and some are more complex but you will probably end up paying a monthly fee for the privilege of using them. CodePile is a fully collaborative technology app for developers that seems to offer all the features of the best of them - and is completely free.
CodePile is a simple, powerful, collaborative, real-time code-sharing hub that has been designed with the modern coder in mind. It goes way beyond the simple copy and paste concept of many others and delivers powerful functionality via an easy-to-use interface and a rich and constantly expanding set of features to back it up. The main goal of the developers was to produce an app that was fully interactive, powerful and simple to use but the also wanted it to look good too. They seem to have achieved all those directives and more.
For starters, the app uses independent cursors with a collaborative feature to enable...
