            Review ofCodeboxCodebox

            I have used this product for over a year now and I find it a wonderful addition to my workflow. However, in the time that I have been using it, Shpakovski have updated Codebox 0 times. No upgrades. No additions to the code base. No extended customisation. No extended personalisation. Nothing. Poor form Codebox.

            When I tried to clone my GitHub repo, it failed with a mysterious error. Grrr.
