Pasting and Fetching Code Snippets
In Qt Creator, you can paste snippets of code to a server or fetch snippets of code from the server. To paste and fetch snippets of code, Qt Creator uses the following:
To configure the server, select Tools > Options... > Code Pasting.
To paste a snippet of code onto the server, select Tools > Code Pasting > Paste Snippet... or press Alt+C,Alt+P.
To fetch a snippet of code from the server, select Tools > Code Pasting > Fetch Snippet... or press Alt+C,Alt+F.
Note: To use Pastebin.Com, configure the domain prefix in Tools > Options... > Code Pasting > Pastebin.com.
For example, you might ask colleagues to review a change that you plan to submit to a version control system. If you use the Git version control system, you can create a diff view by selecting Tools > Git > Diff Repository. You can then upload its contents to the server by choosing Tools > Code Pasting > Paste Snippet.... The reviewers can retrieve the code snippet by selecting Tools > Code Pasting > Fetch Snippet.... If they have the project currently opened in Qt Creator, they can apply and test the change by choosing Tools > Git > Apply Patch.
