Sticky notes

Intelligent annotation for your source code.

Omniref is the only tool that allows you to attach notes directly to your source code. Our annotation engine tracks your code as it changes, and keeps your notes in the right place as your project grows and evolves.

Attach notes to lines of code

Attach markdown-formatted notes to a singe line, a block, or to a whole file. Your note will stay attached to that code — forever.

Our annotation engine ensures that as your code moves over time, your notes move with it.

Easily travel through time

We determine the complete revision history for every line of code in your project. So you can follow a single line to its origin, or just see how a block has changed over time.

With one click, you can scroll back in time to see old notes, and forward to see newer ones. Navigating change history has never been easier.
