SnippShot is a minimalistic code snippets manager that saves your snippets in the Cloud and easily access them from any machine.

For example:- 'spr`' expands to 'Snippet Pixie rules!'

For non-accessible applications such as browsers and Electron apps, there's a shortcut (default is Ctrl+`) for opening a search window that pastes the selected snippet.

The Search and Paste window opened with Ctrl+` (can be changed) is very convenient for quickly finding and pasting snippets, and shows the most recently used snippets first for quick access.

Snippets can be imported and exported in a simple JSON format.

Supports placeholders:-

  • Date/Time: Insert the current or calculated date/time with configurable format.
  • Clipboard: Insert the text contents of the clipboard.
  • Snippets: Insert snippets in your snippets!
  • Cursor: Set where the cursor should end up after the snippet has expanded.

All placeholders are delimited (wrapped) by '$$', with the placeholder name starting with an '@' symbol.For example, today's date can be inserted with '[email protected]$$'.

The pet command does not have version validation associated with snippets uploaded to Gist,so it is possible to wipe out your snippets in two separate ways:

  1. Downloading empty snippets from your Gist, which overwrite your local snippets.

  2. Uploading empty local snippets to your Gist. Since GitHub stores revisions, you can recoverfrom this.

Make sure that you have the latest snippets locally before updating your Gist.
