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 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.
