Issues with editing snippets

Technical Summary:
On the 22nd of August at 2:46pm (PT) we received some user reports of snippets appearing blank when opened for editing. Our investigation revealed that this was caused by some updates to file and snippet code earlier in the day. We deployed a fix and normal editing functionality was restored at 6:20pm (PT).

We reverted the original snippet fix in order to address a concurrent issue with our search feature. We deployed a second fix shortly after, and snippet editing returned to normal at 9:04pm (PT).

We are now working on improvements to ensure this doesn’t happen in the future. If you are experiencing any further troubles please reach out to us at
