Code snippets manager (beta).

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

What's new in Snippets

If your job really involves using code a lot.. How long does it take you to make $40 lol Shouln't developers eat like other people ? Or should they make everything for free so that cheap free-loaders free-wheel all the way. This World is crumbling.. everyone want others to be their unpaid slave. It seemed pretty damn obvious at the Beta stage that this app would not be free.. Real people need to buy groceries and pay their rent...

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.

I was using a demo version of Snippets that used a xml database before it transitioned to a sqlite database in 0.5.2. I've tried several methods of upgrading but it won't import the xml data. Is there any way I can do this, maybe get an older version, or are all my snippets of code now unusable?

Whenever I try to download Snippets via Firefox, I end up with a generic text download sans zip extension. When I download via Safari, the file downloads correctly. Something in the web code is not reporting the file type correctly to Firefox.

Be careful - they are still selling "v1" at US $20 and no where do I see anything telling the buyer it is essentially no longer supported. "Version 2" is a very immature release. Absolutely not ready for production. I really like the app. I mean - I paid full price for it. But I would steer clear for now. I gave up on these guys and bought CodeBox, which I very much like.

This is a "how to" to keep old Snippets in sync between Macs using Dropbox. ◦ First we make an appropriate folder on Snippets (you just need to do this on your first computer, and obviously both computers need to have Dropbox installed): mkdir -p ~/Dropbox/Library ◦ Then we hop into the folder just above where Snippets stores its database: cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/ ◦ We now move your existing Snippets database onto Dropbox (again, just on the first computer): mv Snippets ~/Dropbox/Library/Snippets, OR: ◦ If you’re on the second computer (at work, for example), you need to remove the Snippets folder: rm -rf Snippets ◦ Now we link the Snippets folder to Dropbox: ln -s ~/Dropbox/Library/Snippets Snippets Note: if you Install Snippets for Mac (from snippets.me). You can't do sync using Dropbox!!! Note: This sync solution seems to work fine if you don't run both "old Snippets" apps at the same time. Note: Don't make Snippets "Open at Login" on either computer, or it will open the Snippets library before Dropbox gets a chance to sync it when you log into OS X, then save over it when you quit.

Do not buy, this app has been abandoned. As I recall the developer promised version two with new features ... Not trustworthy

There are different builds of version 1.4. I had build 770 and now there's build 772. @Dev: To make it more clear why not update the version number, maybe to 1.4.1 or 1.4.2 ? (fyi, the schema is ..).

Great tool with really cool Features! A cool new feature would be the involvement of the Xcode documentation for search, similar to "dash" does.

I got this with a Mac bundle. While it is a nice piece of software, I think it is too expensive. Basically, Evernote can do the same thing for free. ClipMenu can as well. I'll give it 4 stars because I think it is good, but value is a 2.

Finally the three pane (vertical) interface arrives and makes snippets much easier to work with. Very nice to have what we have all asked for! The new inspector is much more appealing. It never really fit before. Now you can keep just the essential metadata quicker and easier. The expand feature is new and very good for programmers who often are keyboard centric. I can't think it will be something all your snippets get set for but for the stuff you use daily it will speed things up. We all have boiler plate code even using frameworks. I think competition is coming on now and I have purchased Codebox and Code Collector along with Snippet but I only really use Snippets. The others are coming along but just too feature poor to use. So I can only recommend for production use Snippets. I really like these apps it is nice to see them in a vibrant place. The big feature I really want to see is binary attachments being possible in these apps. I don't just use Snippets for code I have evolved to keep notes in it also. Not to mention diagrams and examples of Adobe CS stuff. I want to keep everything in one place for my work using plain text and as a back up binary attachments in my chosen formats.

Not sure why people moan about buying software in general. I more moan when shareware play games and start update fee begging months after the last one. You just know they spent it all on beer. :) It is a tricky one you want to take it case by case I think. I don't think snippets is doing anything wrong here, and if they keep the hard work up...they are a pretty ambitious and that is clear I don't see arguments over their commitment or softwares quality. So they need to find money to move this quick. Open source is a much slower gradual climb than this with little to no support for free. I mean I would say they may be just now a tad over priced, but not by much and it depends on your countries exchange rate etc. I think they need to promo more and get more users so they can drop it a tad long term. I feel they are no more than $5-$10 too high. But the current price may reflect investment and ambition to improve rapidly, we need to remember this. Do we want it now or open source in 5 years. I would in my business opinion drop it to $35 ($30 if very optimistic)...I've seen a few do that and could keep it going long term as interest suddenly peaked. Student discount is a big must. I am involved with my local school part time and it infuriates me when companies don't do a discount for kids and make it easy to do so! Let them have it now when they graduate the license runs out then they will have a job to pay. That drives me nuts companies not doing that. It does not need to be free just at least 50% off. They cannot afford $40 for this...and none of my students would buy this. So if your listening guys the kids like it but can't afford it. I am not going to go into a student financing debate though as to why $40 is too much for many students but it is. If it such a big deal to pay might wanna look at debian or ubuntu et al gmome 3 looks pretty hot soon but software is not mac quality at the user level. Macs are a commercial platform, bsd or not involved. That is a choice we made. Why would a pro developer make this himself? I don't use cocoa or objective-c. I develop web based applications. If I developed this using my languages it would cost more than $40 and just not be suitable for this use. We are not all mac hackers using this.

$40... This is exactly why I beware of becoming dependent on any software during its trial phase. BusySync, JollysFastVNC, and now Snippets. All of them started out free, and when changed to serious $$$ once folks were fairly locked in. I'm sorry, but whatever happened to shareware/trialware that cost a reasonable amount, such as

True it would be good to be able to place the DB in DropBox or anywhere one pleases.. I gave up on my MobileMe account... and giving MobileMe as the only option is unrealistic... We should all be able to synch as we please.. own ftp, DropBox.. all soft should let us decide where we put their dependencies.. like say 1password does. Anyway I've been using this for the past few weeks and it is definitely the best !!!!

I tried several other snippet applications for mac, and this one is by far the best. There are some good features built in, that aren't even listed, like adding a web link to where a snippet may have been grabbed. It uses almost no system resources. My only wish is that it could backup to FTP, or via dropbox.

By far the best code organization program. Interface is beautiful and extremely functional. You can even run the snippets organizer without having to have snippets open. It is located inside the app's resources. About the name? Yeah someone will have to change or I guess it will be as said below, dog eat dog. See who does the best. This first release I am blown away by. I own apps like code collector pro and it's nice but this is free, more options, and simply more useful. Hands down best FREE code organization app. I might even go as far to say it is the best of freeware and shareware. We'll see how it goes from here but a great start for sure.

Very good beginning at a snippets gathering and classifying application. Extremely easy to use and understand. My only criticism at this point is that the most widely used scripting language - perl - was not included as a "Highlight". I gave a "Value" rating of 3 only because we don't know what the final cost will be.

I just tried it... so far so very good... I must admit, basically this is what I hoped Snippet (the one without the S) would become when it first started... This is actually in my view as of today the best snippet/code collector...

Yep I'd say this is "Snippet" plagiarism to say the least... Except better implemented with a true management system... so Fuel Collective had better copy this one back.. escpecially considering I purchased it.. ggrrr..... damn this is a dog-eat-dog world !!! More and more so every day.
