New Search Updates
We've retooled our search experience to make content discovery even faster and easier.
We now support real-time search, and results appear as you type. After you press enter, you'll notice our brand-new Search Results page, complete with an FFFS (or Fiercely Functional Filtration System). Our FFFS enables you to filter results by criteria including time of last edit, name of contributor and Collections the Pad's a part of.
Code Syntax Highlighting
For you code enthusiasts, we've added inline Code Syntax Highlighting.
Sometimes you'll want to use both regular and monospace formatting in a single pad. To do this, start a new line and hit space four times to begin code formatting. Then, click to select the formatting language.
If you want an entire pad formatted in your language, end the title with a common code file extension. Some examples include Hello.js , Hello.c , Hello.sql
Graphical Gist Support
In our quest to support an infinite array of media, we've now transformedyour Tweet and Github Gist URLs into graphical embeds. (Just make sure they're on a line of their own.)
Now you can Follow, Reply to, reTweet and designate a Tweet as a Favorite, all from insideHackpad.

Here at Hackpad, it is our deeply held belief that users should be able to fully control their data, which is why we’re determined to ensure the easy export and portability of everything you write. We support two ways to export your work.
The first is through Dropbox. From your profile page, connect to Dropbox and enable syncing. This will store HTML copies of all the Hackpads you follow into a 'hackpad' folder in your Dropbox.
The second is from the Hackpad website. To download the Hackpads you’ve created, select your desired file type (plaintext, HTML, or full markup format) from the dropdown menu on your profile page.
To download all the Hackpads in a Site, make sure you're logged in as the Site Admin. On the Site's homepage, select "Manage this Site", "Import and Export", and then the desired file type from the Export dropdown menu. In just a few magic moments, you'll receive an email that contains your download link.
