1.4.8: Suggested Save from JetBrains, one-click save from Chrome

AUTHOR: The Pieces Crew

A couple of major feature releases today, with the theme of enabling you to save snippets in 1 second or less directly from your tools such as Chrome and IntelliJ.

More broadly, this marks the launch of Suggested Save, the first of several major machine learning-driven features to come. Look for a lot more work on deepening our functionality inside the tools you use all day as a developer.

JetBrains Extension (including IntelliJ and PyCharm)

Saving a Piece

  • Users can now enable Suggested Snippet Save, where Pieces identifies reuse patterns in your workflow in JetBrains and suggests snippets to be saved to Pieces.

  • This is the first of many advanced, machine learning-driven features to come where Pieces will be proactively helpful for users.

  • To enable, go to Preferences > Tools > Pieces and click on Suggested Save.

Viewing and Reusing a Piece

  • Users can view their saved pieces inside the JetBrains suite via the right-click menu or from the Tools menu.

  • Users can insert a snippet from Pieces to their cursor position inside JetBrains via the right-click menu or from the Tools menu.
