Embed Snaps via an iframe

Learn how to embed beautiful code snippets on your own website / blog


Snappify gives you the ability to embed your snaps in an interactive way (users can easily copy the code) on basically any website via an iframe.

Some example use cases are:

  • A technical blog where you're describing some code
  • Docs where you're showing off code examples
  • Any other website / webapp where you want to show off interactive code snippets πŸ˜„

Embedding options

As you can see there are multiple settings to configure for embedding. Let's learn more about them. πŸ‘‡

Responsive Snaps

By default the checkbox for making the embedded snaps responsive is checked. That means that your snap will shrink in size on smaller screens and will be centered on larger screens.

This means that snappify takes care of displaying your snap in an responsive way so that it won't be cut-off on mobile devices. Here you can see is a real example of an responsive embedded snap (will be scaled down on mobile devices):

Examples

Here you can see some real world examples of responsive snaps:

Fixed Size Snaps

Here you can see the same snap as above, but in the non-responsive mode so it won't be scaled down automatically. It will preserve its size and the user can scroll to view the full snap on smaller screens.

Examples

Here's a real world example of fixed snaps. The user created two versions (mobile and desktop) and displays them accordingly, depending on the screen size:

Autoplay

When you have multiple slides on your snap, you can use this option to automatically play through all slides.

Show play button

This option will be only visible when you want to embed all slides of your snap and is active by default. It will show a play button on the embedded snap so that the user can start the slides presentation.

By disabling this option the slides presentation will start automatically when the user opens the website.

Embedding single slides

When you want to embed a single slide of your snap, you can do so by selecting the slide number in the dropdown beside the copy button.

Note: Single slide embeds don't support animations
