I have a bunch of text files for how I setup each server and deploy applications.
When I need to setup another server that runs the same software, I search existing files for the commands.
Files about cancelled servers are kept in an old folder for future reference.

Not for coding, but similar.

I used to do that. But Joplin (among many other options) supports markdown (hugely nice for lists and links and even screenshots) and syncs across platforms (desktops and my phone) so has proved fare more useful over time than the text files I used to keep.

Sounds like a great system, also by popping them in old you know that they aren't active but may still give value in the future.
