How to use API Usage Examples
How does it work?
It uses a scan of public GitHub repositories, which creates a mapping from function names to code snippets. These code snippets represent real world usages of those functions. The mapping is used to provide the examples you see when using the feature, via a web service. When you hover a function, the feature only ever sends the names of functions found in public open source repos to the service. It will never send your own custom function names.
