Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does the extension work on any website?

    Kmdr detects Bash, JS, HTML, CSS, TypeScript, SCSS, and LESS code snippets so long as the snippet has been documented by the author as one of those types.
  • Why an extension?

    Being an extension allows Kmdr to move with developers and enhance code snippets wherever developers find them. Incredible websites already exist with many, many great examples and answers to our coding questions; being an extension lets Kmdr supplement websites so that their code snippets are easier to understand.
  • Why Quick Info?

    We want developers of any level to be able to quickly understand the examples they find on the web. Because the faster a developer can make sense of a code snippet online and see how to apply it, the faster they can return to making their own code better.

    Quick Info is Kmdr's first IDE feature to help users understand the syntax of the code they find so that there's no need to open a new tab nor application. Users can stay on the website they're on and continue to see the code resource in context while understanding what a particular keyword in the code does.

  • How can I receive software updates?

    Chrome users will automatically receive updates as soon as we release a new version.
  • Are you making (or planning to make) revenue by selling user data?

    No. Our plan is to make a great product that end users are happy to pay for. We are not and have no intention to sell user data. We only store information essential to improving our product. See the list of what is stored (and what isn't) in our privacy policy or contact us directly with your specific question.
  • Why enhance snippets on the browser?

    We developers spend up to 20% of our coding time on the browser looking at or for coding resources [1]. We search for examples in pursuit of re-usable code when starting with a new framework; we browse project documentation , and look for information on our bug fixes; and while doing so we find that answers with snippets are more useful than those resources without [2].

    Kmdr focuses on improving the snippets developers seek out to make the hunt for resources more efficient. Switching applications is a threat to productivity [3] and the current practice of developers copying and pasting code into an IDE or Editor isn't an effective use of time nor is it aligned with how we learn [4].

  • What browsers are supported?
