Snippery

1.1.0
17 April 2016

Edit and manage text snippets.

Overview

Snippery allows any user to securely save and categorize all their snippets of text, from a few lines to very big text fragments: written from scratch, imported from HD, downloaded as HTML from the specified URL, or with the output obtained from any Shell session done in Snippery's Terminal Mode. These snippet creation modes are powered with a wide set of text edition operations, RegEx support, and some automatizations, as for example the definition and use of text templates with on-the-fly placeholders substitution.

Main text edition operations:

  • Add/Remove Line Numbers
  • Add End of Line Concatenate Lines
  • Capitalize Words
  • Capitalize Sentences
  • Exchange Characters
  • Change text to Lowercase
  • Change text to Uppercase Prefix / Suffix
  • Delete Duplicated Lines
  • Repeat Last Line
  • Repeat Last Line with Substitution
  • Shift Right
  • Shift Left
  • Sort Lines
  • Straighten Quotes
  • Trim Lines
  • Trim Selection
  • Export selected Snippets as text or JSON
  • Send Snippet via email

What's new in Snippery

Version 1.1.0:
  • (New) Markdown Support Now you can use Markdown syntax to write your snippets, and Snippery will render and preview the resulting HTML in real time and export them to PDF, Word, RTF and HTML. With Markdown you can use:
    • Several levels of Headers (H1 to H6)
    • Sorted and Unsorted lists
    • Blockquotes
    • Links
    • Images
    • Tables
    • Bold
    • Italic
    • Striketrough
    • Horizontal Ruler
    Snippery 1.1 also includes a Markdown Cheatsheet from the Help Menu. (New) PDF Export You can export the selected snippet as a PDF file. This feature not only works from plain text snippets but also with HTML and Markdown snippets. (New) HTML Export Now it is possible to export the selected text snippet as HTML. This addition, when applied to a Markdown formatted text snippet is a really powerful feature! (New) Word Export Added the export option to create .docx formatted files compatibles with Microsoft Word among other word processing apps, including Apple Pages. This option is especially powerful when used with HTML and Markdown snippets, although the referenced images are not included in the resulting document. (New) RTF Export This export option generates .rtf formatted files compatibles with the vast majority of word processing apps. This option is especially powerful when used with HTML and Markdown snippets, although the referenced images are not included in the resulting document. (New) Additional options for Filtering Now it is possible to filter the available items by:
    • All: The typed text may appear in the Snippet's Title, Text or Tag entries.
    • Title: The typed text only matches against the tittle.
    • Text: The typed text only matches against the main text.
    • Tags: The typed text only matches against any of the assigned tags.
    In addition, it is possible to filter the entries based on their modification dates:
    • Any Date: Show all the entries that matches the remaining criteria independently their modification date.
    • Today: Show all the entries modified on the current date and that matches the other selected criteria.
    • Yesterday: Show all the entries that has been modified the day before to the current day, and that also matches the remaining criteria.
    • Last Week: Show all the entries modified during the last week, and that matches against the remaining criteria.
    • Last Month: Show all the entries modified during the last month, and that matches against the remaining criteria.
    • Last Year: Show all the entries modified during the year, and that matches against the remaining criteria.
    The Filter feature also offers the ability to sort the filtered results by Creation Date, Modification Date or Title as criteria, both in ascending or descending mode. This feature also includes a clean button directly on the Filter text field. Clicking on it deletes the filtered text, showing all the available entries on the database. This button has the same effect as the already available Snippet > View All menu item. You can find additional information about this feature here (New) Added Edition Mode and Preview Mode Now it is possible to switch between Edition and Preview modes directly on the main window. In preview mode, the selected snippet is rendered as HTML. If the snippet content itself is HTML code or Markdown syntax, then the Preview Mode will render the contents. If the snippet is plain text, then the Preview Mode will wrap the text on a basic HTML structure. (New) Added new Preference "Save by default" With this preference enabled, Snippery saves automatically by default all the changes made to the selected snippet. This way Snippery doesn't have to ask to save the changes every time the user selects another entry, or does another operation that could affect the current text snippet's content. (New) Added preference for "Idle time before Lock" Sets the period of idle time before the app locks the access to the information asking for the Password. (See 'Improved Security' below.) This feature only works when the database is encrypted. (New) View snippet on its own window Alt + Clic on a text snippet item to show its contents on its own auxiliary window. This way it is possible to access as many text snippets as needed while editing another text snippet in the main window. (New) Registration info The name of registered user (trial or final) is showed under the Help menu. (New) Retina compatible Snippery looks great on Retina compatible displays! (Improved) Database Encryption The Encrypt Window requires now to re-type the Password in order to avoid mistakes that could drive to an inaccessible database. (Improved) General Security The app ask now for password typing after five minutes idle, by default. It is possible to active the Password Window (or Locking Window) selecting the File > Lock menu item. When Snippery is in locked mode, there is no way to access the stored data, always the database has been previously encrypted. In addition, the Backup feature generates an encrypted file when the main database is encripted too; otherwise, the database backup file is created as a clean format file, so anyone can inspect the contents using any regultar text editor. You can find additional information about improved security on Snippery 1.1 here (Improved) Text Expansion Feature Now is possible to render any Text Expansion entry, with or without placeholders, directly to the Clipboard. This way it is easier to use the resulting text directly with other applications. (Improved) Shell Window Execution times are now several orders of magnitude faster on automated scripts. Also have been added internal Snippery commands that can be used from a script designed to run in automation mode, or directly from the Shell input field.
    • Added {refresh:time}, where time is the amount of time expressed as milliseconds. Use this command when interacting with some Shell command that requires user input interaction, as when dealing with a SSH login session in automation mode, for instance.
    • Added new command to the automation mode, so now it is possible to set a waiting time before the execution of the next queued command. Use {wait:time}, where time is the amount of time expressed as milliseconds.
    • Added new command to the automation mode, so now it is possible to create a snippet directly from a script using {doCreate}. When found, this command also closes the Shell window once the Snippet has been created. You can use this command as the last step in an automated script, for instance. This way all the process can be executed without needing the user intervention.
    • Added {clear} command. When executed, from the Shell Window input field or as a command from a script, clears the output area.
    • Added button to copy the resulting text to the Clipboard instead of generating a new Snippet. Sometimes, this is all you need. This action closes the Shell window.
    You can find additional information about Shell mode improvementes here (Improved) Preferences Window Added "Ok" and "Cancel" buttons instead of relying on closing the window to save the values without option to cancel changes. Also includes a new setting to adjust the idle time period to fire the security lock feature, and to save by default the changes made to the selected entry. (Fix) Windows and Menu Appearance Solved a problem related with mixed localizations on App UI. (Fix) Text Snippets Window Solved a problem related with refreshing the entries listbox after closing the Tags window. (Fix) Text Expander, Placeholder substitution Fixed a minor problem related with duplicated variables detection, in the rare cases where the user selected the main window to reactivate again the Text Expansion window. There are also other number of minor fixes and UI/UX improvements, inner workings enhancements, and the wires that will enable future features!

Gine me one good reason to pay $23 for a dull app, made in basic-xojo and 32bit. Common, are these 'devs' that stupid and think users buy anything at any price? TextWrangler is free and does the same and much better.

It's always refreshing having this kind of profound comments from someone who has not tried the app. TextWrangler doesn't the same kind of task allowed by Snippery.

Can you elaborate from a technical point of view about your apreciations on 32 bits and "basic"?

As long I know this app is Cocoa native code, and doesn't need to address the 64 bits range of memory or use other niceties available thanks to those "64 bits".

As the developer, I'm really interested because maybe I'm losing something important here.

Thank you anyway.
