 User Experience
 Plug-in Implementation
 Next Steps
- SnipMatch currently uses a very quick and hacky solution for extracting local variables from the user's code, using code completion. This has many limitations, and is potentially inefficient. A better solution would be to extract this information directly from the AST.
- SnipMatch currently performs a web search for every query. This is inefficient. A local snippet cache could be implemented (potential student project?). This would allow search results to appear immediately, while the web search takes place in the background to search for updates.
- SnipMatch is currently not easily extensible to support other languages. A new framework could be implemented to make this easier.
