Awesome sites to find useful code snippets

As a developer, I really like to collect and keep a library of useful code snippets that allow me to save a lot of time when building websites or apps. Today, I have compiled a list of the most interesting websites to find useful code snippets.

CatsWhoCode snippet library

Some of you already know it, but a few weeks ago I’ve created a snippet library with a picky selection of usefull snippets focused on web development: PHP, JavaScript, CSS, htaccess… Approximately one new snippet is published every day. Users are welcome to submit their own snippets.
