  • Tremendous Productivity Aid

    By lm6068
    A huge thanks to the developers. It's a great time-saver having a single source of scripts, references, and links. This app excels when working with different languages in different environments across many projects. Some of the specific features useful to me: -Markdown capability allows markdown to be mixed with code blocks from different languages. -Ability to reorganize the folder structures. -Sync/back up! -Fast launch and search. -Usability. -Well maintained and frequently updated.
  • Extremely valuable developer tool

    I have tons of snippets, notes, howto, examples,... that have helped me through many development and platform setup tasks. This app is easy to use, beautiful, and flexible.
  • Hands Down One of My Favorite Apps

    By NoahRaskin
    This is the best and cleanest app I've ever used to save and organize my code snippets! I LOVE that it's a native Mac app. So many theming options and ways to make it your own. Out of the box it looks absolutely beautiful! One request that would just take it over the top for me, is having the ability to share a snippet via a share link. A link that opens a web page with a nice presentation of the snippet so someone I am sharing it with can view the snippet and copy it. Currently I have to use another app and store snippets in two places because this feature doesn't exist in SnippetsLab and I use it quite often. Would love it if this was added to SnippetsLab so I can maintain my snippets in one location. Nevertheless, I love SnippetsLab!
  • Works after all on Apple Silicon

    When I backed out of the app and came back in, the new folders I created showed up. Also, I checked out the iCloud sync and it worked fine.
  • Best dev app

  • I Love SnippetsLab.

    By sgirard
    I have been using SnippetsLab for a couple of years now, and I am glad to see the app is still being updated. The Markdown support is great. I can't really think of anything that I don't like about SnippetsLab. Well done.
  • A must have for developers

    By Jmccamb
    This app is great and the developer seems to respond to user feedback. The new update brings support to Apple silicon Macs and also provides better integration with Alfred. Even if you already have a snippet tool, this is much better way to save your code snippets for long term.
