Snippets overview

Snippets stores the most often-used pieces of your code for you to re-use in different projects.

Feature list:

  • Snippets supports real-time synchronization as its core
  • Distributors are plugins for Snippets that distribute snippets to the different code editors where you can reuse them natively by taking advantages of built-in functions like variables, placeholders, autocompletions, popup suggestions, and other features
  • Snippets Expander -- assign a short string called Tab Trigger to any snippet, then type it in any editor and press Tab. It will expand to the whole snippet of code
  • Snippets Assistant is a small app that resides in menu bar and which you can use to quickly browse your library and perform several operations
  • Global Search allows you to find and insert snippet without loosing the focus from the editor you are currently working in. Invoke the global shortcut and it will appears on top of all apps
  • Groups and folders to organize your library
  • Very fast search
  • Support for system-wide collecting and pasting of the code
  • Native OS X user experience
  • Different syntax highlights

Can't sync because dev dose not respond to access requests. Needs to be cross platform even if export/import, otherwise useless!

Looks to me like there's a new (paid) version of this app. Currently Snippets 1.4.x, found at www.snippetsapp.com I think this page on MacUpdate may need updating, accordingly.

Well, since Snippets is obviously not developed anymore (instead there's a smaller, uglier, feature-cut and free version put out – that's the second screenshot above) and suffers a couple of smaller issues in Mavericks, I decided to drop using it and went with CodeBox instead. Ideas come and go. Innovation is a good thing. But what matters most is implementation. Here's where the competition part comes in. Apple for example weren't by far the first ones coming up with any of their product ideas. What they did is rethink and refine an idea or whole category into a fantastic product. There are so many ideas coming to so many people out there every day but only few proceed with them and even fewer refine them into a useful or even impressive product. I couldn't care less about code syncing where my data gets shipped out to yet another platform I'd need to trust. This might work for customers – for developers not so much. I couldn't care less about a new feature-cut version. What I need is an innovative snippet manager which lets me get on with my tasks with as little friction as possible. While CodeBox looks like a fresh approach (multiple assets in one snippet, great menu bar utility, much improved looks), Snippets feels stable and abandoned. I'm sad to see Snippets go down this way. I had a good time using it. However, it just doesn't cut it anymore for me. And yes, I feel like I did get my money's worth initially but the abandonment leaves a foul taste in my mouth nonetheless. I wish you success in your future endeavors but for now I'm out.
