Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've been using XCode for a while and I'm starting to have a little collection of snippets. In XCode, they are assigned a completion shortcut and are integrated in the regular code completion, but that's probably the same in other IDE.

Cocoa example: NSC expands to [[NSColor <#color#>Color] CGColor]

Now I can't code without them. Is Stack Overflow the right place to share them and ask for other to share their own?

You can ask for solutions for a specific problem (snippet), but not for a list. Lists of things don’t fit well into a Q&A concept.

Let’s say someone else is asking for such a snippet later: The answer is somewhere in the answers to your question, but the new question cannot be closed as a duplicate because … well … it is not a duplicate. And telling the user search through a long list of answers wouldn’t be very useful.
